Zombie boy, Catman, the Zebra, The Enigma and The Illustrated Lady.
They sound like names for some sideshow performers in an old time circus, but really they are the nickname/performance names of some of the most tattooed people on earth.
Most people don’t have any desire to have their faces tattooed much less their entire bodies, but for people like Julia Gnuse and Lucky Diamond Rich it’s a way of life.
As of right now Julia Gnuse is the world’s most tattooed women. The interesting thing is her tattoos are out of necessity. She suffers from a disease called Porphyria. It causes skin blisters and scaring. To combat this painful disease Julia began tattooing her body to help cover scars and to protect it. After 10 years she is now the world’s most tattooed women.
Then there is Lucky Diamond Rich. This Australian has spent over 1,000 hours being tattooed. He first covered his body in colorful designs, then he decided he wanted to cover those in black, and now… He’s putting white over his black! He is the most tattooed person in the world.
All of this begs the question… How much is too much? Would you tattoo your face? Your ass? Your whole body?
What length would you go to feel good in your own skin?
Now don’t get me wrong I think all these people are cool in their own way, but I’m not running off to get Betty Boop inked on my eye lids.
And my Mom thinks I have to many tattoos- HA!!
