How much time would you spend trying to look like a platypus? None? Neither would we.
But Jenya Bolotov has spent 7 years transforming his face to resemble that of a platypus. It’s pretty fucking weird to be honest but what ever floats your boat, we’re not judging.
I will say though that he doesn’t actually look that much like a platypus, he just looks deformed. But he begs to differ: “Externally, I am now a platypus. Inside though, I am more like a bird. They’re my spirit animal and they come to me in my dreams.”
Here’s a before and after:
In this video you can see Bolotov inserting a 34mm teflon tunnel into his septum, I can’t help but wonder that if he didn’t have the plastic in his nose would it eventually sag?
Funnily enough comments are disabled for the video, probably due to tons of abuse and trolls.
And here he is eating a fig, why you would make a video like this we’re not sure, even if you do think you look like a platypus.
Despite how hard the lipdisk makes it look to eat Bolotov says it hasn’t made a difference in his life. He said:
“I can eat, talk and speak on the phone like everyone else. Nothing has changed at all. I do attract a lot of negative attention when I walk down the street and sometimes people make mean comments. I’m used to it now though and I just try to ignore them.”
