Photos: American woman makes Guinness Book of Record as the most tattooed woman in the world


What began as a bid to cover up a nasty skin condition has
resulted in a Guinness World Record for an American who has
been named the most tattooed woman in the world. Julia Gnuse
also known as the ‘illustrated lady’ has 95% of her body covered in
ink, ranging from jungle scenes and cartoons to her favorite
actors.

Gnuse started getting tattoos after developing a rare medical
condition known as porphyria, which caused her skin to blister
when exposed to sunlight and left scars as deep as three-degree
burn. Miss Gnuse said there was medication available for her
condition, but taking it could have the side effect of possible
blindness. Thus she resorted to the body art — although the ink did
not stop her skin from blistering, it covered up the scars and
allowed her to be exposed to the sun.
