Man Who Transformed Himself Into 'Black Alien' Pays Tribute To Mum On Mother's Day

He said making his mum smile is one of his 'greatest victories'

The man who transformed himself into a 'black alien' has paid a touching tribute to his mum on Mother's Day to thank her for never judging him.

Anthony Loffredo has completely covered his body in tattoos and is no stranger to piercings or more extreme body modifications - including removing his nose - in his quest to become a 'black alien'.

And while his look might raise a few eyebrows, it seems as though he's got his mum's support.

Posting a snap of him and his, seemingly tattoo-free, mum, Loffredo wrote: "Mom tells them it's not true, you don't have any nightmare when you look at me, I manage to put a smile on your face, and that for me is one of my best victories, a mother does never judge her son."

Loffredo, from France, had a rhinotomy, meaning he had his nose surgically removed, in September last year.

The 32-year-old flew to Oscar Marquez's studio in Spain to have the unusual procedure carried out.

Showing off the results of the modification on Instagram, he wrote: : "Like in a dream... I live this dream...

"Thank you to you @oscarmarquezbodymod you will have marked my life... now I can walk with my head high thanks to you, I am proud of what we did together."

Alongside having his nose cut off, he's also had both ears removed, tattooed his eyes black, had dermal implants put in his face and had his tongue split in two.

His modifications have come at a price, though, as during an Instagram Live last year he explained that he struggled to speak after having his top lip removed, but that certainly doesn't seem to have put him off trying to achieve his goal.

Explaining why he embarked on the project, he told French newspaper Midi Libre in 2017: "From a very young age, I have been passionate about mutations and transformations of the human body.

"I had a click when I was a security guard. I realised that I was not living my life the way I wanted. I stopped everything at 24 and left for Australia.

"It has become normal, even unconscious, to constantly think about my plans for the next few months.

"I love getting into the shoes of a scary character."
