He Transformed Himself Into An “Alien”, Then He Found Out The Hard Way That…


A body modification addict who is transforming into a “black alien “ says his extreme looks get him banned from certain restaurant spots.

Anthony Loffredo, otherwise known as the Black Alien Project, has removed his fingers, nostrils and even ears to look like an Alien. His entire body is also covered in tattoos and his tongue is split like a snake.

Loffredo says that he didn’t feel he belonged in his body, but now that he inhabits a body that looks like that of a background character in the Mos Eisley cantina, he says he feels more confident.

“You can’t judge someone. No one knows what’s inside someone’s head, why they’re doing that, you need to talk with this person,” he said, per LadBible.

I’ll talk to anyone. I just don’t know how I’d get the ball rolling with this guy. Maybe I’d go the “Hey man, cool purple teeth” route.

Loffredo admitted life as Black Alien is not easy…

“It’s a fight every day, because every day you find new people who don’t understand, who want to judge. It’s life, not everyone understands everything. Like me, I don’t understand lots of things about lots of people,” Loffredo said on a podcast last year.

While some people alter the size of their figure and inject fillers into their face, Loffredo’s body modification is out of this world. He said he was miserable living in a body he felt he did not belong in, finding self-confidence from people telling him his appearance made them more secure with themselves.

He looks downright scary after changing almost his entire body, including the following:

  • Removed both his ears.
  • Cut off his nostrils and lips.
  • Amputated two of his fingers.
  • Split his tongue.
  • Sharpened and dyed his teeth purple.
  • Tattooed his entire body and face — including his eyes.

Unsurprisingly, his appearance often attracts stares from the public and he’s now claimed he gets hidden away when going out for meals at restaurants.

Speaking to LadBible, he said: “If I want to eat at a restaurant, sometimes the server says I can’t eat on the terrace.”

But he has come to terms that some people are “close-minded”, as “that’s how it will be for all of humanity”. Loffredo says his modifications and tattoos came about because he felt he was born in a body that wasn’t his.

And he claims his appearance has helped others to feel more confident.

He continued:  “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.”

Despite his radical look, the art enthusiast said that he wants to be treated like everyone else. Tellingly, he identifies with transgender individuals who mutilate their bodies because, like them, he says feels different on the inside than he looks on the outside.

“I compare myself to those who change their sex or change the body they were born in a body that wasn’t theirs,” Loffredo said.

“It’s the same thing — men who change to women or a woman who changes herself to a man,” he said.
