In an interview with NeedToKnow.co.uk, Lily addresses these stereotypes, highlighting the misconceptions associated with her unconventional look.

She emphasizes, “Mostly my looks are associated with using drugs and [that I will] not be hired, and not get an apartment – it’s so silly.”

Lily vehemently dispels these notions, revealing that “I personally don’t drink, don’t smoke, and have not used drugs for 20 years.”

She describes her commitment to a super healthy lifestyle, engaging in daily sports activities, and maintaining a diet focused on freshly cooked, nutritious food. Lily actively participates in Ultra Trail races and is progressively cutting down on coffee and sugar.

Moreover, Lily, who owns multiple homes that she rents out, finds it particularly unfair that assumptions about her parenting skills arise due to her unconventional looks.

She asserts that “I spend a lot of time with my daughter and I am a very caring and loving dad.” Lily challenges the stigma attached to heavily tattooed individuals, emphasizing that her commitment to parenthood is not a secret but a genuine aspect of her identity.

Lily’s journey into body modifications began in her teens, where she gave herself the first tattoo at 14 and underwent her initial modification at 18 with a split tongue.

Over the years, she has completely transformed her appearance, with tattoo artist friends assisting her in achieving a fully inked body.

Lily carries 3-8 layers of ink on different body parts, along with various piercings and implants. Her body features no nipples, no belly button, missing fingers, and significant modifications to her ears.

Lily proudly displays “a split tongue and special ceramic teeth.” Highlighting that “100% of my body is covered in ink.”

However, Lily insists that her looks are not her top priority; rather, they constitute a collection that may grow or diminish over time.

She emphasizes that, “At some point, it doesn’t matter anymore. It’s my lifestyle and a part of me.” Lily, who is currently in transition, changing her gender from male to female, describes the ongoing process as a crazy ride and a significant modification.
