'Human Satan' Shows What He Looked Like Before Extreme Body Modification
| Last updated
A man who cut off his nose and finger, and even gave himself tusks as part of his journey to become a 'human Satan', has revealed what he used to look like. Have a look at him for yourself in the video below:
Michel Faro do Prado, from São Paulo, Brazil, is known as Diabao Praddo on social media, with his 60,000 followers watching on open-mouthed as he transforms himself into something otherworldly.
Recently, he revealed that not content with having a new set of silver gnashers installed, complete with curved tusks poking out of either side of his mouth, he also had his ring finger removed from one of his hands.
In a photo shared to his Instagram account, the 44-year-old can even be seen holding the bloody digit in his hand.
But this comes a year after Michel had his nostrils cut off, the third person in the world to do so, giving him a decidedly more menacing look than he was born with.
He also has four horns on either side of his head as well as several implants under the skin of his forehead.
But he's not always looked like this. A tattoo artist for well over 20 years, Michel has always been into body art.
However, it wasn't until he met his wife Carol that he decided to take things to the next level.
Speaking about his journey, Michel said: "I have been a tattoo artist for 25 years, most of my tattoos I get from tattoo artists and professionals who I have paid.
"I focus on blackwork and brutal tattoos, which are types of tattoos where you ink a large part of your body.
"But my wife has specialised in the area of modifications and the idea is for me to become her masterpiece when it comes to tattooing!"
And Michel says he's got a 'high pain tolerance' - which can only be a good thing when he's having bits of his body ripped off for fun.
He explained: "Actually I have a good resistance to pain, I don't think anything is so painful, I suffer a lot more in the post-procedures than at the time.
"And the truth is that there are changes that without anaesthesia would be almost impossible to be done, I would love not to feel any pain.
"But if I have to feel pain, to achieve what I want, for sure I will face it!"
