The Lizard Man
Now I’m going to get all lofty and heavy on you. Perhaps I’m spending too much time with Mr. Brown and his righteous rantings have started to absorb into my brain. I guess the days of cut and run Swellco blogs are over. (r.i.p. Marcus & Kevin)
We have a blog entry category called “lords of the underground” a special place for special people we know or know of that stand tall outside of society. These are people who have made a name for themselves in some way by braking the rules. It’s supposed to be for those who didn’t do what mother told them to do. We’ve got pornstars, street fighters, clowns and wrestlers, but in my mind no one is more outside than those dedicated to extreme body mod. You start tattooing your face and getting implants, you have made a choice to simply never go back. I think the Lizard Man has gotta be in the top 5 most altered humans alive today. 700 hours of tattoos. Filed and capped teeth. Facial implants. A split tongue. All in order to make this man look like a comic book villain, or hero. That should be enough right? Well he’s also one of the most complete one man sideshow acts working today. Fire eating, bed of nails, sword swallowing, eating bugs, he does it all. A pornstar can stop fucking everyone, a clown can wash off the paint. The Lizard Man gave the finger to the whole world and he isn’t taking it back. Even if he wants too.
