‘Black Alien’ Says No One Will Hire Him Due To His Extreme Tattoos And Body Modifications

Meet Anthony Loffredo, the man who transformed himself into the ‘Black Alien’ and now, he’s feeling the real-world impact of his radical appearance.

Loffredo’s extreme tattoos and body modifications have made job hunting a significant challenge for him.

The ‘Black Alien’ shot to fame because of his dramatic transformation goals, where he seeks to morph into the extraterrestrial being he envisions himself as.

However, the journey has not been without its hardships, particularly in the professional sphere.

Loffredo shared with his Instagram followers, “This project to which I dedicated everything—love, passion, determination, strength—has gradually lost its meaning over the years.

“I never anticipated the overwhelming global reaction. Managing the fame was difficult, and it made me lose sight of the project’s original purpose.

“I’ve decided to stop altering my body. I’m done with adding or removing anything. I’m ending my body modifications here, and will complete my full-body black ink coverage. That’s it for now. Farewell to body modifications.”

In an interview with French newspaper Midi Libre, as reported by the New York Post, Loffredo delved into the origins of his body modification journey.

“Ever since I was young, I’ve been fascinated with mutations and transformations of the human body,” he explained.

“There was a moment of realization while I was working as a security guard—I wasn’t living my life on my own terms. I quit everything at 24 and moved to Australia.

“I enjoy embodying a frightening character. I often position myself in a certain spot and act out, particularly at night on deserted streets… It’s an exploration of the contrast between the character I portray and my true self.”

Loffredo also surprised his followers by posting throwback photos to show his previous appearance.

In a Channel 4 documentary, Loffredo revealed, “I used to be a very sexy guy.”

“But I’m still the same person! Same heart, but not my body, my real body.”

On Instagram, he reflected, “13 years/35 years.

“A slave to the body of the free spirit. Free is the race of poets. To choose is to be free.

“Everyone is free, everyone has their convictions. The story continues.”

However, Loffredo recently opened up about the struggles he faces in finding employment due to his unique look.

On an episode of the Club 113 podcast, Loffredo remarked, “It’s a daily battle, constantly encountering people who don’t understand, who are quick to judge.

“Life is like that—not everyone will understand everything. Just like I don’t understand many things about many people.

“You shouldn’t judge anyone. Nobody knows what goes on inside another person’s head or why they do what they do. You have to actually speak to them.

“Finding a job is hard, and there’s a lot of negativity. It might be positive since it feels right, but be aware of the dark side too.”

Loffredo concludes, “I’m a normal guy, I work, I have a family… I want to be seen as a normal person who works, has a family, friends, a girlfriend—all the normal things. That’s what normal is to me.”
