Man turns himself into a dragon by removing ears and nose
A transgender former banker claims to be the first and only person to have both ears cosmetically removed as part of her ongoing quest to become a 'dragon'.
Born Richard Hernandez in Maricopa County, Arizona, the 55-year-old has undergone a number of painful procedures over the past few years including nose modification, tooth extraction and eye colouring.
She also has a forked tongue and a full-face tattoo as part of her transformation into a 'mythical beast'.
The whites of Tiamat's eyes are stained green, giving her what she calls her 'Medusa green eyes of death'.
She now likes to be known as the Dragon Lady and describes herself as a mythical beast.
