But Maria Hose Cristerna, a 35-year-old mother of four from Mexico is known as vampire woman after becoming a tattoo artist and taking her body art to the extreme.
She says she turned to body art after suffering years of domestic abuse.
She has tattooed almost 100 per cent of her body, had titanium 'horns' implanted into her skull and dental implants that give her 'fangs'.
'The horns I have are a symbol of strength and were implanted without anaesthetic.'
I had the fangs done because I loved vampires as a little girl and I changed the colour of my eyes so they were how I really wanted them to be,' she told the Sun.
She showed off her looks at a tattoo exhibition in Monterrey, Californa.
But her transformation is not complete. She says she wants to have more titanium horns implanted in the back of her head
She claims to live a 'normal life' at her home in Mexico.
