Brazilian Dad Turns Himself Into Orc From The Lord Of The Rings.

Rico has spent quite a sum of money to have the extreme body transformation and to give his character a final look, the man even got his tongue split half, eyeballs tattoed and to add to this he has given himself fake tusks too.

This Brazilian man has taken his love for orc from The Lord of the Rings to the next level and has transformed himself into a real-life orc which has landed him a movie role for extreme body modification.  

Rico Ledesma, 41, from Brazil is a father of one and has spent years achieving the extreme look and successfully achieving the movie role. 

He has around 34k followers on Instagram and regularly shares snippets of his daily life with his followers.

Rico and his wife Krishna, who is a body piercer and also goes by the name bat, met each other on the internet and are set to welcome their second child into the world before too long.

Rico has spent a long time making himself look like one of JRR Tolkien's orcs and has even given himself fake tusks (which cost £400) and eight subdermal piercings to complete the look. To add to this, he's had his tongue split and eyeballs tattooed. 

Rico explained: "I started to change seven years ago in order to look different but the project to look like an Orc is less than a year old.

"I got six false teeth placed in August 2020 and I'm going to put two bigger ones in, even though I'm having trouble eating and drinking.

"The new Orc modification project consisted of the implantation of two more tusks (two large teeth), body paintings which are almost all in black with some grey spots and some burns and modifications."

"Today I have 85 percent of my body tattooed.

"The teeth were the final touch to the Orc project and came after a lot of study and sleepless nights."

Rico's crazy body modification has attracted the attention of film producer Michel Reilhac, who is best known for his work on Snow White and The Intruder.

He's succesfully given Rico a role in a forthcoming project.

Rico said: "We will start filming in October in Barcelona and the Canary Islands.

"I can't say much about the film but I can say that it will be innovative and playful - something that has never been seen before in cinema.

"Me and the whole team are very anxious for the cinema debut."

Rico hopes that people will like his appearance just like his daughter loves and supports him.

He added: "She loves and supports me in all my transformations.

"If one day in the very distant future she wants to make some changes to her appearance too, I will be proud of her."
