Russ is so into body mod, he’s even made a career out of it, having performed tens of thousands of procedures, including a forked snake tongue, ultraviolet tattoos and pointed ears. He’s also the proud owner of ‘scarifications’ – where an image is scratched into skin, with the scarring healing into a piece of art – and an implanted 3D silicon scarab.
He has more than 100 modifications, including an electrical key in his hand which he can use to open doors and horns implanted under his skin. He says he became ‘fascinated’ by body mod after getting his ears pierced when he was just five years old. Fast-forward to his 18th birthday, and he already had more than 50 piercings in his face, earning himself the nickname ‘Tackle Box’.
“I started modifying with ear piercings at the age of five, soon leading into brightly coloured hair”.
