Englishman ted Richards, is obsessed by pet parrots Ellie,Teaka, Timneh, Jake and Bubi and has his face tattooed with colourful feathers.
But the animal nut — who has 110 tattoos, 50 piercings and a split tongue — has taken this obsession once step further and has had both his ears removed and is planning to find a surgeon prepared to turn his nose into a beak.
He scours the internet looking for new procedures and says his facial transformation is a tribute to his “babies” — Ellie, a green winged macaw, and Teaka, a harlequin macaw. Since undergoing the operation ted says the only issue he has is keeping his glasses in place. You should have thought of that before you cut off your ears, dummy!
