A tattooist has had a pair of tusks fitted to complete his look as a fictional monster after undergoing a huge range of body modifications.

The 41-year-old man, who calls himself Orc, has covered around 80 per cent of his body with tattoos and splashed out $700.00 to get two giant fake tusks fitted onto his bottom row of teeth.  

The tattoo artist, who comes from the small Brazilian border town of Iguatemi, said he got his first tattoo when he was just 15 and his first modification at 35.

Orc has since gone on to get eight piercings under his skin, his tongue split and his eyeballs tattooed.

His tusks resemble those found on the mythical Orcs in fantasy game series and film Warcraft. The artist insists he is just trying to be himself.   

I’m Transforming Into A Real Life Orc

He explained: ‘I am trying to be myself, these are just my ideas, my inspirations coming from the heart.

‘I am not inspired by anyone.’ 

Orc said he receives plenty of comments about his unique appearance and that most of them are positive.

He said: ‘They tell me good things that motivate me to continue.

‘Bad people exist everywhere and are always around… but they don’t shake me.’

While Orc is proud of his unique appearance, he admits his family and friends are not quite so accepting.

Brazilian Orc

He said: ‘I was raised in Campo Grande by my parents.

‘My mother doesn’t like it, my dad tolerates it and my friends find it weird.’

But that won’t stop Orc from continuing with his love of tattoos and body modifications.

He said: ‘Live, be happy, travel, love. Do whatever you want.

‘Life goes by fast and death is certain.’
