I modified my body to be a “black alien”; now restaurants are afraid to serve me

It has been blacklisted.

Anthony Loffredo, who calls himself the “black alien,” had his ears, nostrils, and even a few fingers removed; he sharpened his teeth and dyed them purple; and covered his body with extreme tattoos. Now the Frenchman says he has found a space where he cannot come quietly.

“If I want to eat in a restaurant, sometimes the server says I can’t eat on the terrace,” Loffredo, 33, recently told LAD Bible.

While some alter the size of their figure or inject fillers into their faces, Loffredo’s body modification is out of this world. She revealed she was miserable living in a body she didn’t belong in, and found new self-confidence from people who have reportedly told her her appearance makes them “feel more confident” about themselves .


Known online as the “Black Alien Project”, Loffredo is obsessed with using tattoos, piercings, implants and surgeries to alter his appearance.

While he grew up interested in body modifications, it wasn’t until he was 24 that he abandoned his old life for his alien pursuit.

“It’s a fight every day, because every day you meet new people who don’t understand, who want to judge. It’s life, not everyone understands everything. Like me, I don’t understand a lot of things about a lot of people,” he said on the Club 113 podcast last year.

“You can’t judge anybody. Nobody knows what’s inside somebody’s head, why they’re doing that, you have to talk to that person,” continued Loffredo, who swears he’s just a “normal man” with a family and friends.

He has undergone several elective surgeries, including slitting his nostrils, removing his ears, cutting off his upper lip, and removing his fingers to make a claw.

The challenges haven’t dampened his passion for body modification: he says he’s ready to take the leap with his leg amputation.

“It’s a very difficult thing because I have a healthy leg, and an amputation is a big thing,” he explained of the difficult surgery.

He previously revealed that he has always been “passionate about mutations and transformations,” even “from a very young age.” But it wasn’t until the unrecognizable tattoo aficionado was in his 20s that he decided to pursue the seemingly strange body changes.

He said he likes “getting into the shoes of a scary character.”

“I love to put myself in the shoes of a scary character. I often settle somewhere and play a role, especially at night in dark streets”, he confessed in 2021. “I explore the contrast between the role what I do myself”.

Loffredo isn’t alone in his heavy body manipulation: some people have tattooed their eyeballs, split their tongues, or gone under the knife for elf ears.
