On the other hand, if you have a very ambitious vision of how you want to recreate your look and you seek out the cheapest possible route, the chances of it going wrong are much higher.
Then there are those unconventional types that want to completely recreate themselves, almost so that they appear to be an entirely new life-form.
From “genderless aliens” to “vampire women”, there are people on this planet who are intent on changing every facet of their being.
So without further ado, here are 10 of the most outrageous plastic surgery stories from all over the world.
1. Vinny Ohh
Vinny Ohh is a makeup artist based in Los Angeles and has undergone over a 100 plastic surgeries costing him an estimated total of $50,000. His end goal was always to look like a genderless alien but since I’ve never met one, I can’t say for sure whether or not I think he’s there yet.
2. Maria Hose Cristerna
Maria Hose Cristerna’s body is almost completely covered in tattoos, but that certainly isn’t the extent of it. She even has fangs and got titanium horns inserted in her head. Cristerna, a mom of four, is originally from Mexico and also goes by “Vampire Woman”
“I am expressing beauty through my art for the world to see,” she explained. “God lives inside of me and I believe it is what I do daily for others and my actions that make me who I am, not how I look or my appearance.”
