I don’t know Lassi in person, but this might be very much the case.
Plus, bodmod artist usually help other people achieve their dreams, even if they seem dangerous / impossible / crazy, so there is a very different mindset compared to a surgeon or the like.
I once told Arnulf, jokingly, that I would like to have a USB port behind my ear or somewhere, and he instantly came up with ideas on how to achieve that. It would be annoying, partly risky, and totally possible. He just insists that I am aware of things that can go wrong, and that I agree in doing experimental stuff without knowing the exact outcome, and if that’s all okay, he’ll help me achieve whatever I’d love to get (as long as he is able to, of course!).
I really love that mindset, though I can understand it can be worrying if you’re used to doctors or surgeons who would rather talk you away from such ideas
But knowing that mindset, and knowing that Lassi is a Finn (who seem to be a bit special anyway ), his reaction doesn’t really surprise me
