Unstoppable is exactly the name that you might think of when you lay eyes on a guy like Pauly Unstoppable. Even in the United States, it’s extremely rare to see someone who has multiple facial mods, especially at a regular job, but that’s exactly what Pauly is. A hairdresser by trade, celebrity is something that seems to have happened naturally to such a normal guy.
Originally from Canada and living in Indiana, Pauly is still in his twenties and is arguably considered the most modified person in the world. Often referred to as “the king of extreme body modification,” his mods include several piercings, multiple stretches, tattooing, an ocular tattoo (on the white of his eye), different types of implants, scarification, branding, nullification, tongue splitting, and several other things.
Oddly enough, the nickname “Unstoppable” is less a reference to his super mods, and more a confirmation of his super-human luck. Pauly has reportedly survived being hit by a car, shot, and even set on fire, and was once in a coma for over two weeks. And that’s not to mention having several painful modification procedures, and managing to overcome the stigma of his somewhat odd looks in favor of a creative and professional career. He’s also been credited as the first person ever to receive an eyeball tattoo. Talk about being truly unstoppable.
In recent years, Pauly has had his awesomely large stretched earlobes reconstructed, going from over 3 inches in diameter to an average shape. He’s also discontinued the stretching of his nostril piercings, which had reportedly reached almost an inch and a half. He is still recognized often when out and about, and asked for photos or autographs.
