With a forked-tongue poking through a hole in his cheek – body art has perhaps never been this extreme! Meet 23-year-old body art enthusiast, Joel Miggler, also a German model, who has created giant flesh tunnels through his cheeks with a side view of his teeth.
According to the young man, he had been experimenting with different ‘art’ since he was 13 years old. First he began stretching his earlobe, then he forked his tongue, then somehow it morphed into stretching his cheeks into two giant holes. The holes, which he has on both sides of his face, are around 36mm wide and he aims to increase their size to 40mm.
Asked if eating poses a problem for him since he now has 3 mouths, Miggler says it is difficult but he simply ‘plugs’ the holes like a bathtub when he wants to eat soup.
‘The jewellery doesn’t touch my teeth and makes no problem with eating and drinking. I only can take smaller bites than before,’ he said.
While he can waggle his finger through his cheek as a party trick, does Miggler have any problem attracting a girlfriend? No – he already has one but admits sometimes people find his art difficult to understand.
