Everything you ever wanted to know about Penguin Boy | BME: Tattoo, Piercing and Body Modification News

Editor's Note: Once again it's been way too long since we've heard from The Lizardman himself.

Time moves Fast on the internet. It has only been a little over a week since the images of Penguin Boy's first suspension hit modblog and created a stir but that entry is already more than a couple pages back from the main page.

Jason "Penguin Boy" Brott was born twenty-four years ago at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, DC. I currently live in Glen Burnie, Maryland when I am not working on the road as a sideshow performer. I have two older brothers and one older sister. The condition behind his lack of arms and fused knees is the form of TAR Syndrome which explains the short limbs and low platelets. The name Penguin Boy was chosen not only for his hands (but left incidentally - one of only five people in the world with that manifestation) but also because he is the same height as the average Emperor Penguin; 3'3 "not counting his mohawk. When you come to be stared at he has an interesting philosophy, 'it's like a hot chick - people are going to stare no matter what, so why not be a stripper and get paid for the stares.' Of course, people tend to, At least initially, ask questions about how he is able to perform many ordinary tasks. I'm simply going to say that after spending time with Jason he is far more capable and self-sufficient than the majority of so-called 'able-bodied' people. I wish that everyone I had to share the tour bus with were self-reliant as him. He can wipe his own ass just fine and he does not have to worry about jerking off because his girl is usually backstage going down on him.

"I have always liked body mods and it just felt like something I had to try I think I first discovered it [suspension] when I was 16 or 17 at the first tattoo shop I worked at - mystic piercing and tribal tattoo. "Penguin's current modifications include: One and a half inch stretched ear lobes, two sixteen gauge horizontal surface piercings over the right eyebrow, eight gauge septum, fourteen gauge horizontal nipples, scarification on both wrists, and several tattoos Including pieces around his throat and on either side of his head. Penguin does not recall who did his piercings but the scarification was done by John During and his tattoos were done by various artists including; White Trash Matt, Mike Stephen at Mystic, Blake at Mystic, Halo at Positive Image, Buffalo Bill, Kylee, Mark Decker, and Aaron at Shiva's. His future plans include a split tongue and expanding his tattoo collection over his body becoming 'The Illustrated Penguin Boy'. He also looks forward to doing more suspensions.

In terms of sideshow, Penguin Boy is definitely on track to become one of the greats. As he puts it, 'I'm going to be a triple threat - a born freak, a made freak, and a working act performer'. I asked him what he thought of the word 'freak' and this was his response:

"The word freak to me is really when a chick wants to give you a golden shower [laughing] but really everyone is To freak in their own way. "
