Though looking muted, Kala Kaiwi’s face is nothing but man-made. Most of Kaiwi’s body is covered with tattoos and above all it contains 70-odd piercings, a split tongue, numerous silicone implants in the face and finally his nostrils and ear-lobes are greatly stretched.
Contrary to other body modifiers like lizard man, Kaiwi has gone a notch higher and had metal spikes pinned into the top of his skull. It is thought that Kaiwi took the decision to look that way due to an inspiration he got from his indigenous Hawaiian culture.

Her doctor advised her to do tattoos which resemble those scars on her body in order to cover the whole truth about her condition.

This percentage of tattooing was enough to earn Julian a place in the Guinness books of records.
