Body Modifier Chopped Off Their Own Finger To Create Extreme Body Art

Body Modifier Chopped Off Their Own Finger To Create Extreme Body Art

A tattoo and body modification lover has taken their alternative lifestyle to the extreme, with tattoos from head to toe and even amputated fingers.

Lily Lu, a non-binary artist, has even turned their hand to documenting other people who live on the fringes of society with a unique YouTube channel - with hopes it will broaden people's minds.

"I am not a freak and I don't feel like one," they said.

While some people would probably cry at the idea of getting inked on their eyeballs, tongue, fingernails or their anus, Lily Lu has ticked off all of the above - and then some.

Having started getting tattoos at the age of 14, Lily Lu decided to become a tattoo artist, and now tattoos themselves while also teaching others how to create body art.

The 33-year-old, from Germany, has two and half tattoo body suits, multiple layers of ink and scarifications, along with red dreadlocks that have been grown for 15 years and black ceramic teeth.

Lily Lu's more unusual tats include ones in their ears and on their uvula, adding to Jam Press: "Even places you can't see like the entire inside of my mouth."

Their passion for body modification has led to them having fingers, nipples and parts of their ears amputated.

Lily Lu says tattoos on the feet, hands, face, ears and around the anus are the most painful of all, and that eye tattoos are hardly a walk in the park.

Lily Lu, who was one of the first 20 people in the world to have these inked, said: "It's a big step for the mind and a big challenge for yourself."

But their most controversial tattoos? That would be the large swastikas on their back.

The artist, who is sometimes nicknamed 'Little Swastika' thinks it is 'deeply sad' that a dictatorial regime appropriated the symbol, which has a long history outside of the context of Nazi Germany.

"You should not take every swastika you see to be a Nazi symbol," Lily Lu wrote on their website, insisting the sign is 'something positive, peaceful and beautiful', which signifies luck.

"Fight against racism - the hate of stupid idiots, but not against a sign - because it's innocent," they added.

The filmmaker's first tattoo was a small sword on their calf, while other artwork includes a spider on the nap and slogans such as 'feel free', which has been inked onto the knuckles.

"Tattooing is deeply rooted in me - there isn't a day where I´m not thinking about it," Lily Lu said.

"You might call it an addiction - but then, addictions are all about not being able to let go, and I'm all about not wanting to let go as far as tattoos are concerned."

Lily Lu, who is married and has a daughter, lives with model and Instagrammer @annuschkatz, who has a similarly dramatic aesthetic.

The pair have a polyamorous relationship without traditional roles or limitations, which offers Lily Lu 'more love and trust' than relationships they've experienced before.

The nonconformist said: "I live as free as I can within the borders of society."

When not tattooing or creating films, Lily Lu enjoys other aspects of the alternative lifestyle - including body suspensions (in which people are hung from hooks through their skin), living out of a van, Japanese bondage, porn production and travelling - all of which gets documented on their YouTube channel.

Lu added: "I just have fun and live my life the fullest I can. I have lived every dream I ever had like 100 times. The moment I didn't let society hold me back life become the greatest and fullest I ever experienced."
