This man cut off his ears to look like his pet parrot

Richards has already tattooed his face and eyeballs, and is now making headlines for having his ears removed...yes, you heard right, his ears.

According to the Telegraph, the animal lover has 110 tattoos, 50 piercings and a split tongue, and just had both his ears removed by a surgeon in a six hour operation.

He told the Telegraph that he gave his severed ears to "someone who would appreciate them," and is absolutely thrilled with the results.

What's next for this obsessed animal lover? Richards says he wants to find a surgeon that will turn his nose into a beak.
