A tattoo artist from Mexico has spent over £4,000 (Rs 4 lakh approximately) on his body modifications, including having his tongue split into half, tattooing his eyeballs and gums black, getting his ears cropped and a genital implant, which inserts beads into his penis to boost his partner’s pleasure.
Dad of one, Mauricio Daniel Garcia Mandoza, 24, from Cuernavaca Morles in Mexico fell in love with tattoos at just five when he saw his dad, Jorge, getting inked. At 18, he got his first tattoo when he realized his love for the process and since then, he has had 160 tattoos covering over 75% of his body in ink.
His latest body modification adventure is one of the most painful genital implants in which beads are inserted into male genitalia to increase partner’s pleasure. These beads are made from silicon, 0.8 centimeters in size; making the penis textured so it remains hard even when Mauricio doesn’t have an erection.
Talking to The Sun, he shared he became curious about genital implants to get a unique look and got it done in the beginning of 2021. He added that he won’t receive any pleasure from genital beading but his partner will.
Mauricio owns a tattoo studio and while his obsession has benefited his business, it has also attracted some negative comments from people too. He revealed how he has been called the devil for his looks and has received prejudice from security staff, but he doesn’t let that behavior affect him.
Talking to Daily Star, he recalled he was intrigued by how a tattoo design could stay on your skin forever becoming a part of you when he accompanied his dad on his tattoo visit. His first tattoo was a diamond near his foot, but now his favorites include his parent’s birthdays, initials of his daughter, and three hearts near his eyelid representing his mother, grandmother and daughter, Alison Garcia, 8.
His advice to others looking for tattoos and body modifications is to be careful as the decision stays with you for life. Also, always go to an expert with knowledge of their previous work before booking an appointment.
