Rio De Janeiro: A tattoo aficionado named Rico Ledesma decided to take this obsession to another level. For years on end, he worked hard to transform himself into 'Orc', who is a character from the J.R.R Tolkien books 'Lord of The Rings.'
The 41-year-old man lives with his wife named Krishna Insomnia. The couple also has a daughter together. 85% of Rico's body is covered with tattoos, including his face and eyeballs. This also includes subdermal piercings as well. It took a year for the family to complete this entire look.
According to the Daily Mail, Rico bought a set of fake fangs worth £400. He also admitted that this makes it difficult to chew his food. Along with this, he split his tongue as well.
His Instagram page is called 'orcinfernall' where he posted pictures of him in the new look.

Speaking to the new organization, Ledesma says, "I started to change seven years ago in order to look different but the project to look like Orc is less than a year ago." Further, he added that he got two false teeth inserted back in August 2020 by a dental professional. The over-the-top modifications also include widened his nasal septum to perfect his look.
