Mattia Muratori, a tattoo junkie, and self-proclaimed “demon,” complains that others judge him based on his appearance. Muratori has spent many years transforming his body to resemble a demon, and he now feels that people should chill out and stop judging a book by its cover.
The man of Italian descent is currently residing in London. He works in a bus garage as a night supervisor. He has discussed how his unique look might result in negative misconceptions in an interview with the Daily Star. “People with body art or body modifications are no different from others who don’t have those things,” the 27-year-old said. “Personally I don’t see the reason for offending or judging someone for what they love to do, especially if they are not interfering with anyone else’s life. “Learn to accept and be kind and stop thinking that everyone who has tattoos is a criminal. A lot of folks seem to be stuck in the past.
“Open yourself to learn more about the story behind all this. No one says you must like it but at least you’ll have enough knowledge to stop criticising a group of people who do things that the majority of other people wouldn’t do.”
To express his fascination with devils, Mattia has five-inch devil horns, split tongue, pointed ears, and eyeballs tattooed on his head. Despite having a Sigil of Lucifer tattooed on his forehead, he swears that he is not a Satanist. At the age of 25, he started getting bodily modifications, including a subdermal spider implant on his bosom. He had his first tattoo at the age of 18.
His distinctive style may also offend others in public. He opened up: “It’s happened a bunch of times but the majority of those babbled stuff about religion and criticised me for the way I was looking, according to Daily Star.
“But once you throw them with the ‘do you think God will be happy to hear what you are saying to me right now?’ they all suddenly shut up and go away. “It’s just egotistical people who think they know better than anyone but they are probably deluded in their life and they show their frustration to other people. “And it seems that folks with tattoos or mods are the perfect targets for those frustrated ones.”
Muratori explains that people have different feelings about him. He enjoys it when others react positively, but he claims that negative reactions are unimportant to him. Last month, he confessed his love of demons, saying: “It’s funny because I’ve heard a couple of times people whispering to each other saying ‘look it’s the London Demon, he comes around this place sometimes.
“I’ve been interested and curious and demonology and curious looks, and since I was a kid I always asked myself whether a person could achieve such a look.”
