There’s a big difference between being thin and being abnormal. For example, a couple nights ago I was out at the local disco dance hall (or whatever the kids are calling it these days) and began dancing with a nice, young lady. As I put my hands around her hips, I noticed how tiny her waist was. Like, my hands were super close to touching. Granted, I do have freak-ish, enormous hands… but still. I’d say there was maybe 7-8 inches of space between my left middle finger and my right middle finger. That’s a small waist. That’s just a skinny girl, though.

Pixee Fox took the term “thin waist” to a whole other level by having 6 of her ribs removed. According to her, “Getting my ribs removed has always been a dream of mine, but it was really hard, almost impossible, to find a surgeon to do it.” I think that any time the phease “it was really hard… to find a surgeon to do it” is used in a sentence, you know it’s probably something you shouldn’t do.

Pixee, who is a self proclaimed “body modification artist,” is proud of her cartoon-ish look. She says, “People often come up to me and say, ‘Don’t take this the wrong way, but you look like a cartoon.’ But for me that’s a compliment, that’s what I want to achieve.”

Here are some pictures of what she used to look like:

And here’s what the 25-year old model looks like now, after a handful of minor tweaks and changes.
