Woman claims to have cut off her little finger then bragged about it on Facebook – but is it a hoax?

WARNING – GRAPHIC PHOTOS: Torz Reynolds says she removed her finger with bolt cutters and is considering releasing video footage of the shocking home surgery

A woman claims to have amputated her little finger with BOLT CUTTERS and bragged about it on Facebook, saying: “It looks cute.”

Gruesome photos from Torz Reynolds’ social media page appear to show the devastating effects of the brutal home surgery.

The images have not been independently verified, but she insists they are genuine.

Torz, who previously appeared on a Channel 5 show about extreme body modifiers , wrote: “I do these things for myself. It’s not hurting ANYBODY else.

“I chose to document them on Facebook because I want to share the experience with my friends.”

She also made headlines in 2014 when she got revenge on a ‘cheating’ ex-boyfriend by reportedly removing a tattoo of his name with a scalpel and sending the severed skin to him by post.

She describes herself online as “one of life’s twisted freaks”.

Announcing the loss of her little finger, she wrote on February 15: “Sorry guys… I just couldn’t bring myself to do it,” before adding: “Just kidding!!!”

This was accompanied by a photo that appeared to show the severed tip of her little finger.

The professional body piercer and modification artist, from London, later wrote: “Healing up nicely! I do have video footage of the actual event but dunno if I want to share it as yet… Not sure I wanna hear that crunch again!”

When asked by one Facebook friend why she had gone through with it, she replied: “It looks cute!”
