55 Year Old Uses Body Modifications To Become Reptilian

Dragon Lady Eva Tiamat Baphomet Medusa was born in Maricopa County, Arizona and abandoned by her parents when she was five years old. She claims that they left her in the desert to fend for herself and she was raised by rattlesnakes. That’s where her love of reptiles began.

Tattoos And Horns

Tiamat began her transformation into a reptoid by having scales tattooed all over her face and body. She also had spikes implanted at the top of her forehead to resemble a dragon.

She’s determined to continue her reptilian transformation and doesn’t like to identify as just human, preferring to be referred to as human and reptile.


Ear Removal

No reptilian transformation could be complete with an ear removal. After all, snakes simply have holes in their heads for hearing. Unfortunately for Tiamat, the outer ear plays an important part for humans. The auricle (outer ear) is used for localization of sound.

Figuring out which direction sounds are coming from is now difficult for Tiamat.

Forked Tongue

Tiamat had her tongue split in two by a body modification artist. She’s spent about $60,000 on her transformation so far, but not to doctors. All that money has gone to these body modification artists who have assisted her in becoming reptilian.

The two halves of her tongue move independently of one another.

Nose Removal

In April of 2015, Tiamat had plastic surgery to remove her nose, making her look more like a reptilian mythical creature. She had her cartilage and septum removed by professional body modification artist, Emilio Gonzales.

She said the procedure was painful. Since reptiles don’t have noses, she considered the modification necessary.


Tiamat is proud of her transformation and wants to send a message around the world of acceptance and tolerance. She’s also determined to bring awareness and to erase the stigma of an HIV positive status, after she was diagnosed with the disease.

She hopes to complete her transformation before the end of her life. She says, “As much awesomeness and goodness there is in humans, compared to other species they are the most destructive and hateful. My big thing though was I didn’t want to die in this world looking like a human.”
