Having fingers removed on purpose for aesthetic purposes is some of the wildest shit I've ever seen.


I-LOVE-TURTLES666

what fucking doctor actually puts their license on the line for this shit?


ThatFuckingGeniusKid

You really think that was an actual doctor? It looked like the back of a tatto parlor

Q13989731E

They are on google "how to chop off fingers"


ImurderREALITY

Try to start a Zippo ten times in a row and fail on the first try Oh, that’s how to *get* fingers chopped off. Sorry.

The camo pants is what did it for me

The lack of an iv drip, any monitoring devices attached to him, and some sort of supplemental oxygen supply sort of give it away….

baldwinsong

Il kinda looks like he had them removed in a tattoo parlour that takes hygiene seriously


churdski

He went to Spain where it is legal


YourPlot

There’s actually a healthy debate in the medical community about whether or not to allow elective amputations like this. The reason being that doctors are afraid that these people will just go to get it done back alley and end up getting infections and seriously harming or killing themselves. If allowed to electively amputate, then it can be done safely, under anesthesia, and with proper follow up care. Others say plain “do no harm” of the oath trumps.


Ravager135

Physician here. I’m not a surgeon, but it doesn’t take much of stretch to apply this to any aspect of medicine. It is extremely unlikely anyone here in the United States would electively amputate fingers without some type of medical condition or indication. Now people can argue different body dysmorphias that might apply, but the liability is just so high that I’d have to assume 99.9% of physicians/surgeons would want nothing to do with this. Do no harm always comes first. Even if a patient threatens to get it done unsafely elsewhere. I’ll use a less extremely analogy. If a patient asked me for a medication that they did not need or was potentially harmful to them and I said “no” and they threatened to get it illegally or somewhere else, I still wouldn’t give them the medication. Same applies here.


UF1Goat

I wasn’t totally buying into this until the second paragraph. You’re right, it is the same type of scenario. You may not morally be able to stop their actions, but that doesn’t mean you are required to enable them.


Ravager135

Exactly. I don’t judge what people do. I follow evidence based treatment guidelines for conditions. But not judging does not mean I have to enable. I am under no obligation to provide any treatment in which the harm outweighs the benefit.


eloheim_the_dream

On top of that there's actually a psychological condition (Body Integrity Disorder) where you feel like part of your body is alien to you and in extreme cases has lead people to remove or destroy their own limbs/body parts when doctors refused. You might remember the case, making rounds on the internet, of a woman who rejected her own eyes/sight in this manner and eventually blinded herself using household chemicals when doctors refused her pleas for elective surgery to blind her. The human mind is capable of wilder shit than you might think.


Mathwards

I remember a person on Springer back in the day who couldn't get doctors to remove their legs, so they ended up injecting themselves in the knees with their own poop to get them infected enough that they doctors would be forced to.


Zhabba_Zheeba

I...uh...yeah, I think that's enough Internet for me today.


Sokid

Mexico. Probably not real doctors. Look at the pic of him on the surgery bed. Those guys are covered in tattoos and that’s definitely not a real surgical room.


Q13989731E

Ahem! And btw I am not a doctor. After 2 of your fingers are removed.


oz6364

he could have just cut off circulation to the fingers until they died and then a doctor would have to cut them off.


dabolution

Got his ears removed too. I cant even fathom doing something like that.


EquivalentOutcome796

and a piece of his nose and whatever else


smashinMIDGETS

Upper lip too


citizenp

Wait till you find the section of the internet that has the bifurcated penises.


doomgiver98

R/spacedicks doesn't exist anymore.


ReckoningGotham

R/subincision It's dicks cut in half on purpose. Just so you were warned.


agntdrake

I've thought about this kind of behaviour a bit, and I think it's a natural consequence of having a certain size population. If you have enough people you're always going to get _someone_ doing weird assed shit that tests societal norms. That can be crazy body modifications or really any societally deviant behaviour. That type of stuff _must_ be going on in China and India, but we rarely hear about it over here.


Anonymousthepeople

Dude if some of the normal, everyday shit that we see in videos from rural areas of those countries seem crazy...*imagine* just what the "amputate your own limbs" kind of people are doing over there.


z0mbie55

I remember reading one of the Dexter books(the show is based off of a book series) years ago. He went to an art exhibit where someone had a leg removed. If I remember correctly there was a bunch of photos showing the process and then the person was getting around on crutches while there. That’s what this guy makes me think of. Crazy ass shit in a fictional story, but it’s real…


cheapdrunk71

I been kind following the "progress" of this guy. Didnt know about his finger removals, maybe it is a recent operation? But I was last most shocked at his top lip "modification". And of course... "Most shocked" is a relative statement. Especially when we consider [how Anthonys face looked](https://media.tag24.de/720x480/g/c/gcgmv0gipksse22rmkiupfci1715avnf.jpg) before he decided to commit to his "human to alien" face and body modifications. Such a good looking guy. It is horrific and hard to understand for me. but at the end of the day each to his own, right? who im I to judge?


Jim_Flatcrock

Wait until you discover penis modification!!


tokyotapes

There some body dysmorphia people who feel like certain body parts are “foreign” to them and want them removed. Of course no doctor will willingly amputate a perfectly functional arm or leg. So what the patients do is cut the circulation until it basically “dies” and the sound medical solution is to amputate, forcing their hand (pun intended slightly). I don’t think that’s what’s happening here, pretty sure all these people are just playing doctor and none of this is legal.


bootyLiQa

Is it even legal?


uclatommy

His body, his choice.


IalsoenjoyReddit

His body, his consequence.


Bibliloo

To look like this, yes. Cut of fingers and ears or do those strange surgeries, probably not or at least not in most countries but probably legal in Morocco.

So how does this guy get by financially?


Sirerdrick64

He *was* a banker apparently…


DimitrInvincible

He must have lost interest

You could say he cashed out.


appleavocado

Not until his portfolio lost a couple digits.

At this rate he may lose an arm and a leg

kittymoma918

I'm curious.How can anyone get much work done,without thumbs? Being thumbless is so disabling that the Romans did it to run away slaves . They couldn't climb a rope or much else to get away again. And it was a real deterrent to others.

He removed his ring and pinky finger not thumb

He's going to be on Fox News representing Antiwork next week

onebadmex66

Are there any interviews with this guy? What experiences lead him to these choices?


Aurakataris

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9haHRTYnP8


El_Charro_Loco

Lucky me for being a native Spanish speaker....He speaks and acts surprisingly normal and polite. If I talked to him on the phone I'd picture an easy going young guy who plays intermural sports with his friends in the evenings


fremenator

Yeah the body language too wow he's so chill


Buzzdanume

Yeah, typical reddit tearing this guy down for absolutely no reason. Everything I've ever seen of him has actually been quite inspiring. The guy is literally just doing what he wants. He has a vision in his head, is going for it, and is not giving a flying fuck what anyone has to say about it. He's not some shitty internet personality either, which he could very easily turn into if he wanted to make a shitload of money. Nope. This guy is just politely living his life and it makes him happy.


thehomie

> for absolutely no reason … Lol I mean, come on… We’re all looking at the same dude who *chopped off 4 digits* in order to achieve “a vision in his head,” right? Plenty of people will read further into this guy’s life than the facts permit, but to say that there isn’t *something* up with him is, well, silly. Without knowing anything more about him than his appearance, and what little I can gather from that interview clip with my limited Spanish, I’d wager this guy would fully embrace the notion that he’s very fucking different than the rest of us. I don’t think it’s my place to make value judgments on this type of behavior. But I sure as shit wouldn’t be asking this guy to watch my kids while the missis and I are on date night. What I will say is that his physical fitness reflects a certain level of self control and discipline that I find completely contradictory to the rest of his appearance. This guy is an anomaly for sure.


z500

Uh, bully for him, I guess.


MacinTez

Never judge an alien by its… Uh, homeplanet?


terminbee

I like how he sits and sings his legs like a child. It's such a stark contrast with his appearance.


Graffiacane

I'm not a native spanish speaker, but he basically says he has always been interested in "the universe" and the idea of other life forms, he started when he was 26 with some chest tattoos, his first body mod was the biforcation of his tongue, he is now 33, considers his project to only be 23% complete, and when asked if he has a final form in mind as a goal he waffles a little bit but just says "something different-looking" though he also says it's a lifelong project that he will continue until the day he dies. He does sound incredibly normal and rational about it. Like it's just a hobby for him. He seems much more grounded than any other person with extreme body dismorphia I've seen talking about themselves and their reasons. If you limit the scope of "mental health disorders" just conditions that negatively impact mood, physical health, result in emotional pain, etc., from the 3 minutes I just watched he doesn't seem to qualify. Comes across more like just a guy with a really really really weird hobby.


nolanz2

appreciate you for this bud


IAMA_Printer_AMA

I suppose the difference between this being mental illness, and it not, would be whether he looks in the mirror and goes "I don't like how X part of my body looks, I want to change it" or if he goes "it'd look sick if I changed X part of my body to Y". The former would be body dysmorphia and the latter would be a really weird hobby.


El_tanjiros

Actually is 40%


cback

great comment


ThatFuckingGeniusKid

The are various interviews but they are all in spanish


magnumninja

He doesn't really look like an alien but more like squidward on drugs


jimmyedge69

We don't know what a real alien looks like anyway


Cfhudo

Definitely not like a bumpy homo sapien who cut off his lips ears and fingers and eyelids.


larvyde

Think of the creepiest things you can find here on Earth, maybe cockroaches, or one of the many-tentacled things of the deep sea. Now despite that creepiness, they are part of the same grand tree of evolution as us, even someting as far removed from us like a tomato has 60% of its genes in common with a human. Those creepy crawlies we were talking about earlier? They're paractically our siblings and cousins. A real alien from a truly separate evolution line would look _utterly incomprehensible_


magnumninja

Now we do they look like squidward on meth


samwbx

Handsome squidward after a bender


Kiptus

A bender of hard meth


burothedragon

Implying there is soft meth.


shred1

I prefer meth lite.


gnarleybates

What, no before photos? He was a good looking dude at one point.

I was looking for'em and found his IG account: https://www.instagram.com/the_black_alien_project Here is one [before/after](https://wikibioin.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Anthony-Loffredo-547x381.jpg) and [another one](https://www.purorocknacional.com.ar/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2021/11/PUVUXHDQ5JEZVICQBFGBDP4OQA.jpeg).


jam-22

My guy went from cookie cutter guido to edgy black Prometheus


CptTurnersOpticNerve

That is some kinda of mental illness


CatalyticDragon

What’s he going to do when he finds out aliens actually look like single celled organisms ?


barrysmitherman

Keep cutting.


The_Professor784

Dafuq?! He from Germany? I mean he‘s got a shirt of the German army on. I am German, but I have never heard of him.


Mynamethisisnot

I think he's French, lived in Barcelona Spain and now he's in Mexico I think


Rob_Drinkovich

So at least the US will officially recognize him as an alien.


xsawl1

Ah, an alien of the world.


twailwetard

German dogtag too


Sad-Blueberry-7440

He is from Montpellier in france


CaptainSaladbarGuy

Mental Illness is fucking nuts


Carnator369

Just because I have sex with cashews doesn't mean I'm mentally ill!

sancho7373

No, subtraction.


GneissCream

So he wants to look like an alien that's into shitty human fashion ads?


Over-Analyzed

The thing that I don’t get is that it would be cheaper and less permanent if he learned to do special effects makeup to get to that look! There are some crazy/insane makeup artists that could easily whip up a better looking alien than this guy! I’m just a hobbyist and I can do some gnarly injuries. I just can’t understand why he would make this permanent?


bearbarebere

Maybe body dysmorphia? Like he truly feels that the only thing that would finally make him happy with himself is being this particular design? If he changes it later than prob not but still


asportate

Looks like he removed his lips too. How does he not have permanent dry mouth?


deapsprite

lotta water i assume,he did mention it did fuck with talking and you can tell he has some issues with it in his interviews


MamaLlama629

Therapy and meds would have been cheaper


sarcasticlovely

honestly, in the US, it wouldn't be.


tilapiaq

Nah I mean I'd agree except the degree to which he's done this looks like over tens of thousands of dollars


Nothing_Jon_Snuhhhhh

He looks like a Ghoul from the Fallout series


pazoozoo93

This was exactly my first thought. Almost thought I was the only one


[deleted]

I saw an interview with this guy, seems like a super sweet dude. Don’t judge an alien by his talons.


Jfonzy

Did he have trouble pronouncing his Fs Bs Ps Ms and Vs

He’s a French alien I believe.


GorgeousGregory

Kinda resembles the alien that abducted and probed me in a UFO.


hardspank916

Any butt play?

It took me around Uranus, except the anus was mine.


BrozoTheClown26

Mostly butt play


Wolfdude91

This brave man is ready to infiltrate their ranks and find out what exactly they’re after.

How funny if aliens came and looked like us...


RC_Colada

How does he wear a mask indoors?


dvmdv8

He needs a hug and a tuna melt


Debeefed

What surgeon removes fingers? And why aren't they arrested?


carpenteer

Did you look at the photos? Looked more like some totally unlicensed backroom shit, like the "surgeon" appeared to be a tattoo artist wearing scrubs.


AlexHimself

All it takes is a pair of scrubs to LARP doctor lol


Trump_is_Maga

He also had his nose lips and ears removed


gertalives

Honestly, if I had nose lips, I’d probably have them removed. Or maybe that comment needs more commas.


AssaultedCracker

He had all his nose commas removed


Sapphire_Bombay

Im surprised he still has nipples. Like of all the things to keep


mookie41

a surgeon most likely would not. but a body mod specialist would. and most likely without anesthetic,since body mods are mostly performed without it.


UsernameTooShort

There’s absolutely no way in hell you’re getting your fingers cut off with no anaesthetic.


groovy_giraffe

Does heroin count?


meetmeinthebthrm

The yakuza would have digits of there own fingers cut off to settle disputes with rival gangs. No anesthetic. A whole finger, though. Sounds pretty fuckin iffy


ElegantEpitome

Did you see the former yakuza on YouTube who talked about this and how he had to do it? It’s pretty wild. I don’t think it’s the whole finger at first unless it’s a big offense, but yeah they have to cut their own finger off at the knuckle with like a butcher cleaver or something. It’s just the top part of the finger for first offense, then second part I believe and then the whole finger


meetmeinthebthrm

I saw a former capo or something show his and explain why, but he didn't go into detail. It was a documentary about an ex yakuza turned professional photographer. It was pretty good. Have a link to the one you saw that explained the process?


ElegantEpitome

[In this video around the 2:15](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HNSVksntOs&ab_channel=Insider) mark he explains the ritual as it was done in a movie and explains what he himself had to do. Pretty crazy to listen to ​ EDIT: He didn't use a butcher cleaver, he used a chisel and hammer... and he said sometimes you have to >!use your leg to get the force to get through the bone and get it off!<


sharklepower

You would be surprised. Next to nothing in the BME world is accomplished with anesthetic, and some people within that umbrella elect to amputate digits, external sex organs, etc. Some people even dedicate themselves to it specifically for the endurance and pain aspect. Edit: I may be incorrect about the prevalence of anesthetic, however I stand by my statement that many do approach mods with focus on endurance and pain, and that at the very least, large swaths of mods are done without numbing/anestetic.


mookie41

people do crazy things,obviously.

I think he's far along enough at this point he wouldn't regret it to the day he dies. Maybe if he got a face tattoo and backed down, but he's already gotten his nose and lips removed.
