Meet the Vampire Woman

07 Apr

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.”

    I wonder how she feels when she sleeps face down… Or when she bumbs her face on the wall. I think she is uncomfortable enough as she is. I wonder how far women would go just to get attention. That little insecurity inside of us is so pwerful it ruins lives.

    I wonder if she’s still allowed in the Catholic church. Kind of ironic for a Catholic to do this.

      What I’m curious about is her kids’ reaction towards her. Imagine having family portrait with her. Fine when it’s Halloween but Christmas?

    People do what they wish to do. Others may look at it as though it is ‘wrong’ or ‘unusual’.. But, this women had a bad child hood and this is her way of moving on. Everyone has different ways of greiving, this is just hers.
    Yes to me this does look quite differnent and i wouldn’t do it to myself but aren’t we all different?
    Don’t curse upon her, we all have different styles and such this is hers. Eg; Lady gaga just had implants… Now that ‘women’ is REALLY different. But as i said we all are.

    i totally respect this woman, everyone is different in their own way and most of us are too scared to show that we are different because the way society is, society tells us that we all have to be skinny, pretty, big boobs and perfect teeth but this woman shows that if you put your mind to it anyone can stand up and say im an indivdual and im proud. if anyone thinks shes a freak then it means they are one of societys victums and basically just alittle clone. thats all i needed to say. this woman is a total blessin.
