Alternative model, Joel Miggler, 23, can poke his forked tongue through his CHEEKS following the dramatic piercing
An extreme body artist has taken piercing to a HOLE new level after creating giant flesh tunnels in his cheeks.
These pictures show how alternative model, Joel Miggler, 23, can poke his forked tongue through his CHEEKS following the dramatic piercing.
The 23-year-old, from Küssaberg, Germany, began experimenting with body modifications at the tender age of 13.
Since then he has acquired a grand total of 27 different piercings, as well as six tattoos, an implant and has even had his buttock branded.
His obsession with body modifications first began after stretching his earlobes and has now spent over £4000 altering his body.
As his piercings became more and more extreme, Joel eventually had two huge 36 millimetre holes created into the side of his cheeks but plans to eventually stretch them to 40 milimetres.
But despite his extreme look, Joel insists that his tunnels do not affect his daily life and instead simply takes smaller bites when eating.
Luckily, Joel’s mother is very supportive of his decision to change his body but he does admit that she is not too fond of his cheek tunnels.
It also seems that having huge holes in your cheeks doesn’t create any problems when it comes to his love life and has been dating an artist and body piercer for over six months.
The public’s response to Joel’s bizarre modifications seems to be pleasant overall, apart from a wave of negative response from the online community and social media channels, people either simply stare at him or occasionally stop him to ask questions.
Joel said: “When I walk around on the street, people only stare or sometimes ask me questions if they are interested in my jewellery.
“It is only on social networks that they mostly discriminate and offend me.
“My mother likes most of my modifications and she has supported my decision to look the way I do but she doesn’t think the more extreme things, like my cheeks, are very beautiful.
“There is not one person or one thing that inspired me, I just enjoy playing with my body and blood. “Having my cheeks pierced was not really painful, there was a local anesthetic involved in the procedure.
“My cheeks are currently 36 millimetre wide in diameter but my goal is to stretch them to 40 millimetres.”
