A man who wants to look like a “sinister” creature has unveiled his extreme body modification.
Michel Faro do Prado has been dubbed the "Human Satan” for his out of this world appearance after undergoing numerous body modifications to fit his devil-like image.
The 44-year-old, from São Paulo, in Brazil, who has worked as a tattoo artist for 25 years, is on a mission to look as sinister as possible.
And to really get his image, Michel has even gone to the dentist to shape his teeth into arches with plans to coat them entirely in metal.
His wife specialises in body modifications and has also helped him along the way to achieve his unique look.
But despite going through all lengths to embody his extraordinary image, Michel said he isn’t trying to look like the devil, although that’s what people call him.
Michel also explained how he worships God and tries to do greater good in the world, adding his image doesn’t match his character whatsoever.
Speaking about his look, he said: “The idea is to become more and more sinister, the question of the ‘Devil’ is that people have this image in mind!
“I believe that the true image of the ‘devil’ is beautiful, the Bible says this in Genesis and also the same way in the book of Isaiah, which says that says that Jesus was ugly that he looked like a dry root in the desert.
“He did not inhabit any beauty, so if it is a matter of fiction that the Devil looks likes me more, in my heart I prefer God and doing good!”
And with his unconventional appearance, Michel says his family and friends have always supported him from the beginning.
Michel has made it clear he does not tolerate people who disrespect him for his choices, saying how each person is different in the way they choose to live their life.
He said: “My family love it, which consists of my wife and my son and some people in my life have also become my family.
“I have several young friends who call me father, and others who have become brother and most of them are actually acquaintances or colleagues.
“However, it doesn't really matter to me what people say! I only demand respect! I do not reject conventional society; I reject its hypocrisy and disrespect for those who are different. Each person is what they choose to be – I am what I am and they are what they are.”
Michel said his appearance allows him to continuously break the mould and gives him the chance to express his true self.
He said: “My personality is not the same because we are here to evolve, but my personality, myself, has been transformed by the lessons of life.
“My exterior has changed because of what I am and I am becoming. My exterior only represents internal freedom I have to break paradigms and concepts imposed on us as a society.”
