A transgender man has pushed the limits of plastic surgery by transforming herself into a dragon. She has undergone drastic surgeries to alter her human face, but she’s also tattooed her face and body with brightly colored “scales.”
Many people are wondering if the 55-year-old so-called “dragon lady” has gone too far.
About the Transformation into a Dragon Lady
Richard Hernandez turned Eva Tiamat Baphomet Medusa felt as though he was born the wrong gender. After a sex change, Eva decided she didn’t want to be referred to as a “she or her.” She wants to be an “it.”
The “it” identification has led to Eva going as far as removing its nose, two ears, implanting horns, changing eye color, extracting teeth, and getting a forked tongue.
To understand the Dragon Lady even more, it might help to read its self-description:
“I am the Dragon Lady, A pre-op M2F transgender in the process of morphing into a human dragon, becoming a reptoid as I shed my human skin and my physical appearance and my life as a whole leaving my humanness behind and embracing my most natural self-awareness as a mythical beast. As for pronouns I prefer to be called “it” and not referred to as a she or a her. WELCOME TO OBLIVION!
Many people wonder if Eva suffers from a mental illness or if this is simply just a case of wanting to transform itself into a mental image she has created. While psychological evaluations have probably been conducted, there is no news on whether it suffers from anything more than gender dysphoria.
Health Concerns for Dragon Lady
Transforming its appearance isn’t what matters in this case. Dragon Lady has a right to alter it’s appearance any way it wishes. What’s concerning is health risks of the procedures it has had and will have in the future to achieve it’s goals as the Dragon Lady.
The ears are shaped the way they are to prevent debris from entering the ear canal. Altering the shape of the ear can put the eardrum at risk, which could lead to hearing problems. The natural shape of the nose protects the ability to smell and breathe, and with the alterations performed, it may put those senses at grave risk.
