Can you believe it’s been a year since I last posted a photo of Jenya? Last time there were a number of comments about Jenya’s weight loss due to health problems. Well he’s doing a lot better, and has the beard to prove it.
I’m fairly certain every single person with a large lip plate has been asked that very same question at least once in their lifetime. When Sean chatted with Jenya a little while ago, the question came up, and sure enough he has no problems eating at all. So why am I bringing this up now? Well, Pavel_Zhilenkov sent in some great photos of his upper lip to the lip plate gallery, and as you can see by the photo below eating isn’t a problem for him either.
Jenya is no stranger to Modblog. In fact long term readers have watched him evolve into the modern modded man he is today. Fortunately, he was nice enough to chat with me on Skype a while back to answer some questions about him and his mods. His native tongue is Russian, so I had to clean up the grammar on his answers a bit to make it easily understandable, but I did my best not to change the context whatsoever.
Sean Philips: So why don’t you give me some basic info to start; age, sexual preference, location and career.
Sean Philips: So right off the bat you knew you wanted stretched lobes, what lead to that decision?
Sean Philips: No problem it’s far better than my Russian.
Jenya: The platypus has a large bill which is very similar in appearance to the large stretched lips for human. Also, I really like the sound of the word “platypus” in English.
It’s been a little while since we last checked in with IAM’s resident human platypus Jenya. Aside from his fantastic mods, he also exudes so much joy. When he e-mailed me a little while back with these photos he had mentioned that because of some health problems he had to reduce the size of his lip plates to a 32mm medusa and 58mm labret, but he’s doing better and is back on track to reaching his goal of a 100mm medusa and 200mm labret. I really love that when he was telling me the size of his lips in the photo he was saying that they’re small. I guess size is relative. Either way, this human platypus and his impressive collection of modifications is always a treat to post.
Let’s wrap things up today with this chilling shot of Jenya being attacked by some sort of carnivorous argyle bird (“Mark” is its name, apparently). Some reports indicate it may be more of a symbiotic relationship, as with the small birds that eat out of the teeth of hippopotami, but we prefer to believe it’s something far more…sinister. (Because we’re jerks.)
Until tomorrow, ModBloggers.
Hot damn—between his huge lip plate and stretched medusa, Jenya has altered his appearance more radically than many other people that we’ve seen, but I swear, I don’t know if anybody looks giddier and more satisfied with his appearance on a consistent basis than he does. I say it every time, but Russians, man…hearty stock and all that.
After the jump, his lip without the jewelry.
Phwoar blimey, he’s a busy man isn’t he! He’s got four working offices!!

Speaking of the tattoo expo, there were quite a few IAM and ModBlog regulars there, including Inna, Pj_Evl and Duff (remember her controversial interview?) in the photo below as well as (in the photos on the right, L-R) Tan0k and Petya, some folks from the suspension show, and Diktatura. All of these portraits are by Bodom Skater.
Golddust also snapped these shots of a really great facial tattoo that seemed to be getting quite a lot of attention.
