A body-modification-obsessed couple has held Guinness World Records for their extraordinary looks for the better part of a decade.
Victor Hugo Peralta, 52, has carved the figurine of Satan 666 into his scalp, along with £400 worth of metal horns implanted into his skull.
His wife, Gabriella, 52, is also covered in Mohican-style ink.
The couple, who live in Argentina and have been married for 15 years, have 91 tattoos and mods between them, and while they love their look, they have previously been called a “cherub from hell” by people who aren’t too keen.
In 2014, they received the official Guinness World Record for “Most Body Modifications” in the Married Couple category.

And they just renewed the title for the ninth time.
“When we got the title, I felt so much emotion and so much pride to receive an award for my choice of life,” said Victor.
Gabriela, from Argentina, said: ‘I have always been true to what I love and the image I want to have, respecting my inner being which was closely related to art.
Growing up in my grandparents’ house, I breathed art 24 hours a day.
My grandfather was a musician and photographer, and my grandmother was a painter.
I grew up with art around me.
13-year-old Victor remembers getting his first ink with the word f*** on the fingers of his left hand.
He’s since signed more than 95 percent of his body and says he hopes to emulate a “deuce.”

Victor added, ‘My father loved to draw, and thanks to him, I adopted this passion for drawing and later grew up as tattoo people.
Then the mods arrived and one day Guinness found us and gave us this craving.
“I am so happy and proud to honor my wife for our very lives.”
Victor, who is originally from Uruguay, has been tattooing others for over 28 years in his studio, Querubin Tattoo Studio, based in Buenos Aires.
After meeting his wife, they continued their passion together.
Between them, they’ve spent thousands of pounds on their alterations, which include denting – or etching into the leather – as well as pointy ears and forked tongues.

Previously, they revealed how people online called them an “angel from hell.”
But now they say they have learned how to deal with trolls and hope to educate people about their mission.
Victor added: “People react in different ways: surprise, curiosity and fear.
We are often congratulated on our bravery and daring, whether with our pain threshold or its tolerance.
But also because we face society by choosing a lifestyle that is completely different from others without any kind of apprehensions.
We live it naturally and without prejudice – we simply live as we want.
We are very happy and if someone asks us or us about our way of living, we are always willing to talk or exchange opinions, as long as everything is respectful.
