A video of Ted the parrot man before his most recent transformation.
If somebody wants to look like a parrot, most people wear costumes. But for Ted Richards in the UK, nicknamed “Ted the parrot man,?he’s taking a different route. He isn? named that just because he has parrots (which he does, four in total), but because he? slowly transforming himself to look more and more like a parrot. In his latest transformation, he has had his ears surgically removed. The change makes him look even more bird-like.
Richards, who lives in Bristol in the UK, has already tattooed his eyes different shades, and also his face, adding colorful feathers. Along with that, he also 110 other tattoos, as well as 50 piercings and a split tongue, according to Telegraph UK. Now with his ears removed, his next goal is to find a plastic surgeon that will turn his nose into a beak.
According to the Telegraph UK, Richards is changing himself in tribute to “Ellie, a green winged macaw, and Teaka, a harlequin macaw.?lt;/span>
Richards absolutely loves his change, saying “ŠI love the fact that I’m unique and I have always wanted to be different.”
One plastic surgeon objected to the surgery however. Marc Pacifico, a member of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, told the Telegraph UK, “I am absolutely horrified to learn that someone has voluntarily put themselves forward for this to be done and possibly more so that he found somebody to actually carry it out … The sad truth of life though is that if you want something badly enough you will eventually find someone willing to do it.”
