A body modification fan has now had her ears cosmetically removed to pursue her goal of becoming a “dragon.”
Eva Tiamat Medusa, 55, a former banker from Maricopa County, Arizona, has a face covered in tattoos and a forked tongue, as well as several other cosmetic modifications, including eye coloring, the addition of horns on her forehead, and nose modification. Her latest procedure was to have her ears removed to move toward her dream of being a “dragon.”
“I am the Dragon Lady, a pre-op M2F (male to female) 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,” Eva wrote on her website.
Eva, born Richard Hernandez, likes to be known as the Dragon Lady and says she wants to embrace her “most natural self awareness as a mythical beast.”
“I don’t care what people say about me or my views, and if I have to I will defy and stand alone against the world, but never will I make any compromise to my integrity,” she said in a recent social media post.
Eva regularly attends tattoo conventions and has amassed a following online. She shared a series of before-and-after photos showing her transition from male to female to ‘Dragon Lady,’ spanning from 1990 to 2016.
