Tattoo artist turns himself into an 'ORC' by having his nose removed

Brazilian tattoo artist turns himself into an ‘ORC’ by having his nose removed, ears mutilated and his skin tattooed blue

  • Fernando Franco de Oliveira has covered around 99 per cent of his body with ink
  • De Oliveira, who owns a tattoo studio in Tatui, has horn implants fitted to head
  • He also has a forked tongue and vampire teeth and removed his nose to make it look like part of his skull 

While some may claim to be avid Lord of the Rings fans, this Brazilian tattoo artist has gone one step further by turning himself into a real-life ‘Orc’ by having his nose removed, ears mutilated and his skin tattooed blue. 

Fernando Franco de Oliveira has covered around 99 per cent of his body with tattoos, including his eyeballs which are now entirely black, and even has horn implants fitted to his head.

The tattoo artist, who owns a studio in the southern city of Tatui near Sao Paulo, admitted he is ‘addicted’ to the pain of needles. 

De Oliveira has acquired a forked tongue and vampire teeth, but he said the most painful and life-changing surgery was the removal of his nose.

He decided to cut and reshape his nose so that it would look like part of his skull, and despite the drastic measure, he is still able to breathe normally.  

De Oliveira said: ‘I have a forked tongue, an ‘orc’ ear, vampire teeth and horn implants in my head. The last one I did, to make me look completely frightening, was my nose. I mutilated it to look like a skull.’

But after the original operation in March, it took a long time for the ‘skull’ nose to heal and needed a great deal of care.

He admitted that he enjoyed the process of reshaping his skill with the final transformation of his nose the most difficult and complicated of all of the procedures he underwent to look like an orc from Lord of the Rings. 

But de Oliveira is not done yet. He still wants more horn implants in his head and perhaps remodel his ears, which have been mutilated to appear like an orc’s, some more. 

He revealed: ‘I have had everything tattooed except my palms and the soles of my feet.

‘I really like the pain of needles, I am addicted. Every now and then I get the need to touch up the tattoos because I don’t have enough space on my body.’
