Woman Undergoes 20 Body Modifications In Attempt To Become Human Cat
A woman from Italy has undergone more than 20 body modifications in an attempt to transform herself into a "cat lady"
According to a report by the New York Post, 22-year-old Chiara Dell'Abate, who goes by the name Aydin Mod on social media, revealed that she has undergone several surgeries and artificial enhancements done on her body in an effort to transform into a human cat, almost literally.
On her TikTok account, the woman can be seen flaunting her drastically altered physique, which she began modifying at the age of 11.
The modifications she's made to her body so far include over 70 piercings, punched nostrils, a bifurcated tongue (split tongue), upper-lip piercings, and even piercings on her labia. Additionally, she has undergone extreme procedures such as a blepharoplasty, which involves the removal of excess skin or fat from the eyelids.
She also has 10 subdermal implants on both hands, four horn implants, six genital beads, tattoos on both of her eyeballs, back suspension hooks, as well as completely removed nipples.
Dell'Abate has received plenty of criticism from online detractors, with many taken aback or shocked by her extreme appearance
But even so, her videos have garnered millions of views on TikTok, further fuelling her desire to achieve a complete transformation into a feline.
"It's crazy to see how much the human body can change and what you can actually achieve from body modifications," she said, adding that her journey towards resembling a cat began with initial comparisons made by onlookers.
"I think becoming a cat lady is more appropriate for me as I don't really want to look like a cartoon character.
"I have always loved cats, and I think I'll look really bold and fierce as a cat lady with the right body mods," she said.
Even after undergoing numerous procedures, Dell'Abate still has a long way to go to achieve her desired appearance
For example, she'll need a "cat eye lift", or a canthoplasty to produce more elongated and almond-shaped eyes, teeth reshaping, an upper lip cut, and even surgery that involves cutting a slit into her septum.
"I'll put a thing called a transdermal, which is like a huge micro dermal to attach a tail, and definitely more tattoos," she added.
"Procedures of any kind hurt a lot, but the pain is temporary and not a big deal to me."
