Gabriela and Victor Hugo Peralta, a couple from Argentina, have broken the record for the most body alterations. The duo has gotten 98 tattoos and other body alterations because they are passionate about them.
Guinness World Records was informed by Victor Hugo Peralta that “Enjoy both life and the arts. It’s simply art; getting a tattoo doesn’t make you good or bad. Both people who enjoy it and people who don’t will exist.”
The couple has 50 body piercings, eight microdermals, fourteen body implants, five dental implants, four ear expanders, two ear bolts, one forked tongue, and their sclera (the white area of their eyes) tattooed.
The couple has earned the moniker “cherubs from hell” due to their unusual appearance.
According to a Guinness World Records press release, Gabriela and Victor met at a motorcycling event in Buenos Aires, Argentina, around 24 years ago. This encounter would forever alter their lives.
At first glance, there was love. They knew then and there that they would spend the rest of their lives pursuing their enthusiasm for bodily alterations and implants, some of which, they freely confess, are quite painful.
According to the pair, the best representation of artistic expression and freedom is bodily modification.
The scarifications, of which Gabriela has three, have caused her the most anguish. She said the feeling is unlike that of any other modification. Victor’s tongue pigmentation, which kept him from breathing for hours, was his most agonizing experience. But in the end, it was all worthwhile because it’s one of his favorite improvements.
