PHOTO: 43 Year Old Man Spends £10,000 To Look Like The Devil
With his forked tongue, razor-sharp fangs and horns that poke from his forehead, Diablo Delenfer, 43, from Kent, looks like most people’s idea of a terrifying demon.
Now the former security guard and self-described ‘body modification artist’ is to have screws implanted into his skull in a bid to create a devilish metal mohawk.
But because ‘body modification’ is unlicensed and unregulated in the UK, the entire operation will be done without anaesthetic.
‘Everything I’ve done, I’ve done fully conscious, fully awake,’ he explains. ‘You see the needle coming towards you and that’s really stressful. You can’t be scared of pain if you’re the Devil Man.’
‘I am a human curiosity but body modification is my life’s journey. It’s a little bit weird, a little bit eccentric but that’s what I am.’
‘I chose to become the Devil Man because everything else has been done, whether here or in America. I’m not Satanic at all – it’s just a piece of fun.’
‘Over the years, it’s probably cost me £10,000 to look like this,’ he explains. ‘Being a Devil Man doesn’t come cheap!’
‘Relationships is a bit of a difficult issue to be honest,’ he confesses. ‘I’m looking for someone who can see beyond the mask.
‘It has changed the way people look at me, accept and deal with me. It has made certain aspects like relationships difficult but it is my life journey and I ain’t stopping!’
I do get a lot of attention from people walking down the street and I do have fun with it. Some people are scared and some don’t understand but it is just a bit of fun. I’m not satanic at all, it’s purely an image thing!
