A transgender woman has decided to go a step further into “trans-reptile”. Tiamat has cut off her ears, shaved her nose and had scales tattooed all over her body in a bid to look like a rattlesnake.
It is reported she has spent the last 20 years attempting to look more like a reptile and has had several dramatic body modifications over the years, including having its ears cut off, a shaved nose, horn implants, eyebrow dome implants, a forked tongue, fangs and dyed the whites of its eyes green.
She did not use a doctor for the cosmetic surgery and instead turned to a body modification artist. She has spent around $60,000 so far (£45k).
