IS THE MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION IN YOUR INTERVIEWS?
If it hurts, why do I do it, if I use
drugs, if I am not going to regret my mods, etc. The answers vary depending
on my mood
YOU DIFFERENT FROM "THE OTHERS"?
People are different from the others, even without
modifications. I don't have many visible modifications and don't feel
aesthetically different from people without mods.
HOW DO PEOPLE FROM YOUR CITY (Florianópolis)
YOUR FAMILY REACT TO
not much difference between Florianópolis and São Paulo
people make the same questions and react in the same way. It's totally
new for my family - they haven't been around it before. But they love
and respect me, regardless.
YOU DISSATISFIED WITH YOUR "NATURAL STATE"?
is no "natural state" - you grow, pick your haircut, your
clothes, modifications, etc. There is no difference between a person
with modifications, like tattoos, piercings, and implants, and a model,
who undergoes lyposuction, gets breast implants and an artificial tan.
The motives vary from person to person and from modification to modification.
My hand scars, for example, have no relation to my tongue splitting.
DID YOU START?
began in 1997, by getting a tattoo in each foot.
YOU LIST THE MODS YOU'VE DONE IN THE ORDER THEY WERE DONE?
done and removed several piercings. Forehead, tongue, lips, chin, nipples,
forearms, navel, scrotum. I haven't removed my eyebrows, just shaved
them, so it is not a permanent modification, it's like a haircut. At
this time I have four tattoos (one on each foot, thighs, and hands),
two scars (hands and belly), a 1/4" Prince Albert, 1/2" septum,
9/16" earlobes (I want to reach 1 1/2 - 2"), postectomy, and
ABOUT THE SUSPENSIONS? WHAT
IS THE SENSATION?
first suspension was my birthday gift, when I turned eighteen. Although
it was for a short time, I was happy I didn't pass out, or have any
other bad reaction. The second suspension was really better than the
first, and the third, better than the second. I am preparing the fourth,
a knee suspension, and I think it will be even better :)>
You stay above the ground, flying. You feel free, despite being held
by tons of hooks. I think its fun - I don't enjoy being suspended and
staying in a corner, alone, meditating. It's another way to have fun.
