You ever have that feeling where you say to yourself ‘I want to be unique and individual?’ It’s the kind of thing that leads to a tattoo, piercing or a even pair of skinny jeans.
Meet Tiamat, a true individual. The 55-year old has a full face tattoo, a forked tongue, and no ears. Born as Richard Hernandez, Tiamat now refers to herself as a mythical beast and prefers to be known as ‘The Dragon Lady.’
On her website she says:
“I am the Dragon Lady, A pre-op M2F (male to female) transgender in the process of morphing into a human dragon, becoming a reptoid as I shed my human skin and my physical appearance and my life as a whole leaving my humanness behind.”
Tiamat had an operation called ‘the double Van Gogh’ where both ears were removed. She has also covered 95% of her body in a snake skin style outline.
She told The Sun:
“The second outwardly visible reptilian feature came to life when I had snake scales added to my face. I hope to enable people to have an appreciation for the art of body modification.
“What I like about body mods is everything from the aesthetic appeal, the sexual pleasure, the shock value and most important of all, personal gratification and spiritual significance.”
It all looks very painful.
