‘Human Satan’ body modification addict scoops world record for highest number of HORN IMPLANTS in the head
- Michel ‘Diabao’ Praddo has 33 horn implants in his head and won world record
- Praddo said his ‘dream has come true’ after he won the world record on TV show
A Brazilian body modification addict who is known as the ‘Human Satan’ has won the world record for the highest number of horn implants in the head.
Michel ‘Diabao’ Praddo, 47, from Praia Grande coast near São Paulo in Brazil, has 33 horn implants in his head as part of his years-long bid to completely transform his appearance.
Michel said his ‘dream has come true’ after he won a Guinness world record for the most subdermal ‘horn’ implants on the head.
The Brazilian, who beat another hopeful who had 18 horn implants, travelled to Milan, Italy, in February for the record to be verified on the TV programme ‘Lo Show Dei Record’.
Speaking to Brazilian media about the experience, he said: ‘It was something very special and surreal. A dream come true to enter Guinness and also go to Europe.
‘At several moments, I was emotional, with tears in my eyes, as I went over my life. An experience that I will cherish forever in my heart and memory.’
Prior to winning the world record, Michel had told Brazilian media: ‘This is the TV programme, not the book, but it can open doors.
‘Being there means the realisation of my project. I didn’t just imagine it, like many people. I actually made it happen.’
Michel is known as the ‘human satan’ thanks to his extensive body modifications and devilish appearance.
The tattoo artist has been practising his trade for 25 years but has gone one step further to undergo several procedures and completely transform his aesthetic.
Last year, Michel underwent surgery surgery to remove a middle finger and implant a set of silver tusks in his mouth, which he says cost only 5,000 Brazilian reais, or roughly £790.
Michel also claimed he was the third person in the world to have the end of his nose removed, in a procedure which is highly dangerous and for which the long-term health risks are unknown.
He also has four horns on either side of his head and several implants under the skin of his forehead.
Michel had his ears, nose, nipples, and the ring finger of his left hand removed, and more than 80 per cent of his body has been inked, including his eyeballs. He even ate one of his amputated nipples.
But Michel has no plans to stop and hopes to compete for the title of the world’s most modified man.
He is married to his partner of more than 10 years, Carol Praddo, who is dubbed ‘Mulher Demonia’ or ‘Demon Woman’ and is also extremely modified.
His wife specialises in body modifications and has also helped him achieve his unique look.
‘I have been a tattoo artist for 25 years, most of my tattoos I get from tattoo artists and professionals who I have paid,’ Michel said.
‘I focus on blackwork and brutal tattoos, which are types of tattoos where you ink a large part of your body.
‘But my wife has specialised in the area of modifications and the idea is for me to become her masterpiece when it comes to tattooing!’
Michel claims to have a high pain tolerance and doesn’t mind enduring more pain to achieve the body he desires.
He said: ‘Actually I have a good resistance to pain, I don’t think anything is so painful, I suffer a lot more in the post-procedures than at the time.
‘And the truth is that there are changes that without anaesthesia would be almost impossible to be done, I would love not to feel any pain.
‘But if I have to feel pain, to achieve what I want, for sure I will face it!’
