A man who had extreme body modification procedures to look like a ‘black alien‘ revealed he can’t eat in restaurants anymore.
Anthony Loffredo, 33, from France, dreams of becoming a ‘black alien’ and has put his body through several procedures to remove his ears, nostrils and some of his fingers in order to achieve the look.
Speaking to LadBible TV, the Frenchman has admitted that his extreme look has earned him some criticism, and that local restaurants won’t serve him on the terrace anymore.
Anthony, who took up body modification because he felt he was born in a body he didn’t belong in, said he has had to make his peace with people who are ‘close minded.’

‘If I want to eat at a restaurant, sometimes the server says I can’t eat on the terrace,’ the Alien wannabe said.
He added that changing his body to look more Alien-like has boosted his self-confidence, saying: ‘There are people that said thanks to me as they feel more secure now. That now the looks they get from other people, don’t bother them.’
Anthony has already covered his body – including his eyeballs – in tattoos and removed his nose and top lip in his bid to look like a ‘black alien’.
He’s admitted in the past that his appearance made it difficult to find work.

The body modification enthusiast before he began to turn his body into a ‘Black Alien.’ Anthony said he is only 44 per cent into his modification journey
He previously told the Club 113 podcast: I can’t find a job, there’s lots of negative stuff. It could be positive because you feel better, but you have to know there’s also a dark side.
Despite Loffredo undergoing a number of surgical procedures – not least to split his tongue in half and remove his ears – he revealed that he is still ’44 per cent’ of the way to his goal of becoming a ‘black alien’.
Loffredo has undergone surgery to have a hole cut through the skin below his bottom lip. He often posts images to Instagram of himself poking his forked tongue through the hole.

He has also had countless implants placed under his skin, which is almost completely tattooed black.
In a previous Instagram post, he had hinted at splitting his penis in two, prompting one social media user to reply: ‘I knew you were stupid… but that much??’
Last year, Loffredo revealed he had surgery in Mexico to cut off his two fingers so that his hand looks like a claw.
Graphic images and video footage showed Loffredo lying on an operating table surrounded by surgeons as he raised up his hand to look at his new ‘claw’ in awe.
In July, Loffredo revealed that he was preparing to remove two fingers from his right hand as well so that he can have matching ‘claws’.
The Frenchman likes to document his body modification journey on Instagram, where he shows off his tattoo and extreme looks
He wrote on Instagram: ‘On the other side of the world to continue my project, the procedure is going well, one more dream that has just come true. Thank you for doing your top job, thank you Mexico from my heart. 34 per cent loading.’
Loffredo’s controversial body modification transformation sparked praise – and dismay – among his Instagram followers.
One wrote: ‘Oh my god you did it. I didn’t believe it but it’s true. I hope your body will adapt.’
Others were less supportive, as one user wrote: ‘Blatant disrespect to those that are unfortunate to have lost limbs and look for ways to function as the human body should.’

He has also amputated some of his fingers and added gills-like details to his forearms to build up the Alien look
Anthony said people have reached out to him and thanked him for talking openly about his body modification journey
Another wrote: ‘You’re 100 per cent going to regret this one eventually.’
One user said: ‘This is disturbing and fascinating at the same time. I don’t think I could do this, but thumbs up to you for living your dream.’
The latest transformative procedure comes after Loffredo had his nose and top lip removed. He later confessed that he now struggles to speak.
He had his nose removed last year in Spain as the procedure is illegal in France.
Other than piercing and tattooing, body modifications that result in injury are illegal in many European countries.
As such, Loffredo did not specify exactly where, when or by whom his nose and upper lip were removed, when speaking about the procedures in an Instagram live question and answer session.
Loffredo did admit that he was struggling to speak since the removal of his top lip but this does not seem to have dampened his enthusiasm for body modification.
He said he dreamed of removing his skin entirely and replacing it with metal and listed his arms, legs and fingers, along with the back of his head, as the next parts of his body he wants to have modified.
Speaking to French newspaper Midi Libre in 2017, Loffredo said he had been ‘passionate about mutations and transformations of the human body’ from a young age.
When he was working as a security guard in his twenties, he realised he was not living in the way that he wanted to.
‘I stopped everything at 24 and left for Australia’, Loffredo, who according to his Instagram is now based in Montpellier, France, told the paper.
‘It has become normal, even unconscious, to constantly think about my plans [for body modification] for the next few months,’ The Mirror reported Loffredo as saying.
The striking-looking individual said he loved ‘getting into the shoes of a scary character’.
‘I often settle down somewhere and play a role, especially at night in the dark streets,’ he said.
‘I explore the contrast between the role I play and myself.’
