Years ago, 35-year-old tattoo and body modification artist Torz Reynolds decided to cut of the chunk of her skin that had her cheating ex-boyfriend's name on it and as part of dark humor, she even decided to mail it to him. Talking about it, the Scottish woman shares why the decision to slice her own skin came easily to her.
Woman Cuts Off Her Arm Tattoo Having Her Cheating Boyfriend's Name And Mails Him The Skin
Torz Reynolds, a 35-year-old tattoo and body modification addict decided to take revenge on her cheating boyfriend to next level and sliced her own arm skin where the cheating boyfriend’s name was tattooed after he cheated on her.
The Herefordshire, England, native thought chopping off her limb that was inscribed with her ex’s name was “quicker than lasering it off.”
The Scottish woman went an extra mile and mailed the skin flesh to her ex boyfriend.
“Years ago, I cut off the tattoo of my ex’s name and sent it back to him in the post,” she told Jam Press.
“He had been a naughty boy and cheated on me so obviously I wasn’t going to keep his name on me anymore,” she continued. “I opted to cut it out purely because I had already done skin removal before. I knew it didn’t hurt that much and it’s much quicker than laser sessions, which is a bit of a long game.”
She went on, “I had totally cut contact with him before I sent it, so I have no idea what his reaction was. This was really just my dark sense of humor at play.”
Reynolds runs a body-piercing business and sports many piercings, modifications, and tattoos, including a split tongue, scarification, skin removal, and implants.
Apart from slicing off her own skin, she also sliced off her ear lobes and clipped off one of her fingers.
The extra part of her finger is currently stored in a pendant inside a display cabinet.
Before cutting her pinkie, Reynolds says that she often used to tie down her finger to see if she could get along without it and it seems like it didn't hinder her in any way.
She prefers to do her own work on herself, so for her digit-diminishing procedure, she set up a workstation to ensure it went smoothly. “I have a lot of professional knowledge when it comes to modification, so I knew the risks I was undertaking,” Reynolds said.
She purchased cutters for herself from a local hardware store and set up a sterile environment. After she fashioned a tourniquet for her finger, she made “one quick chop and boom, it was done!”
“It was all over in a second and I couldn’t have been happier,” she said of cutting off her pinky — the detached part of which she has nicknamed Wiggles.
Reynolds has her pinkie finger stored in a necklace, but she doesn't prefer wearing it as she fears losing the precious item: “To this day, [Wiggles] just sits at home in my cabinet next to the jar of my earlobes and random dead things,” Reynolds said.
Reynolds says her family was also well aware that she was “seriously considering” changing her body, “so it didn’t come as much of a shock to them.”
“Like anyone who loves you, they just want me to be safe and happy,” she said.
“I’ve done many other modifications that some might see as extreme, so it was just another Tuesday to them.”
Reynolds also pointed out that she has received some hate for her extreme choices. “After revealing my finger, I got a lot of the usual nonsense: offensive messages, death threats and such, which I always find amusing.”
She added, “It’s bizarre to me that something I do with my body that literally doesn’t affect another single being can upset people that don’t even know me and are unlikely to even ever meet me.”
