LA Makeup Artist Spent Over $50,000 to Transform Into a Sexless Alien | “I Want to Be a Hybrid”
There are countless people around the world who opt for cosmetic surgeries to achieve their desired look. So whether it is Valeria Lukyanova, the famous Ukrainian model who splurged millions to resemble a Barbie doll or this person who is determined to shed their human skin and embrace the identity of a genderless alien. According to City Magazine, Vinny Ohh is an LA resident who wants to become a sexless alien and had already undergone over 100 procedures on their body by 2017, when they were 22 years old.
Ohh's obsession with body modification and cosmetic surgeries started when they had a lip correction at the age of 17 and then went on to have 2 operations on the nose, cheekbones and eyebrows. Ohh also uses black sclera contact lenses to resemble the kind of aliens we encounter in various mediums of pop culture.
According to Toronto Sun, Ohh said that they "really want to be a sexless alien being." "I want my outside to reflect how I feel on the inside. The overall image I want to do is an alien. I want to be a hybrid, not male or female. I’ve wanted to be sexless and genderless since I was 17, I’ve been going to doctors to see if it’s possible but had no luck,” they added. To shock the netizens even more, Ohh has apparently decided to get rid of their genitals as well.
“I could live without sexual organs so why should I have a penis or a vagina,” Ohh continued. “I don’t see why I shouldn’t have my genitals completely removed and have nothing down there.” Ohh has also made an appearance on Botched, a reality show where two doctors help people fix their plastic surgeries which went haywire. Despite what people around Ohh might think of their appearance, the eccentric artist has revealed that their idea to go through such a drastic transformation stems from the issue of not being able to fit in with society.
“Some people absolutely love me, see me as a celebration and give a lot of compliments. I don’t look real and people love it. Some people have said they want their kids to be like me and that I’m an inspiration for children who don’t feel like they belong. Other times, I’ve had shopping carts chucked at me or I’ve been considered a sexual object by men and women," Ohh admitted, per the outlet.
Ohh is apparently used to not fitting and was wearing full-body suits and eight-inch platforms going outside in the day since he was 16, so it feels very normal to him. Besides spending over $60,000 transforming themself into an alien with no gender, Ohh was told by plastic surgeons that they may never be able to have the operation to remove their genitals. As per New York Post, plastic surgery Dr. Simoni, who runs a practice in Beverly Hills, said such a procedure is highly controversial since doctors are unsure what effect the removal would have on the body’s biochemistry. He said: “The experimental nature of the procedure means it is highly risky and it could also impact on basic bodily functions such as Vinny’s ability to urinate." He further added, “My main problem with this procedure is what is he going to think about it in ten or 15 years time?" Well, we don't know if Ohh has gone through with their plans to become an alien yet but we do know that Ohh continues in their profession as a skin therapist in LA and has continued posting on their social media pages.
