However she tries to spin it, Mariajose Cristerna, aka 'vampire woman,' is not your everyday mother of four, as she claims to be.
The 35-year-old is an example of extreme body modification, including a body almost entirely covered in tattoos, as well as implanted horns made of titanium. She also has implants made to look like fangs.
Surprisingly, Cristerna used to be a lawyer in another part of her life.
According to the 35-year-old, it was being a victim of domestic abuse which pushed her toward body art, evidently it was also the impetus behind the extreme measures she took for self expression.
Cristerna was first 'discovered' when revealing herself at a tattoo exhibition.
But even when you look at her extreme images, she says she isn't through with her modifications yet. She has plans to add similar horns in the back of her head.
Cristerna asserts she lives a normal life in her Mexican home. I wonder what her children think normal is?
