Meet the Vampire Woman

While a lot of women are getting addicted to cosmetic surgery to enhance their looks, this lady does exactly the opposite.

Maria Jose Cristerna, a 35-year-old tattoo artist and trained lawyer takes the trend for body art to a whole new level by re-inventing herself as a “vampire.”

Cristerna recently showed off a new set of titanium “horn” implants — along with dental “fangs” and multiple facial piercings — at a Monterrey tattoo exhibition, but insists she lives a normal life. “The horns I have are a symbol of strength and were implanted without anaesthetic,” the Catholic-raised mother-of-four tells the Sun proudly. “I had the fangs done because I loved vampires as a little girl and I changed the colour of my eyes so they were how I really wanted them to be.’

She added that she wants to have more titanium horns implanted in the back of her head. “Tattooing is my way of being immortal, of really being a vampire and not dying — leaving my work on other people’s skin.”
