Tattooed WomanHere is a woman who some say is tied with the Guiness Record for Most Tattooed Woman , Kystyne Kolorful – Julia Gnuse, The Illustrated Lady. She has tattoos covering 95% of her body. She has a skin condition known as porphyria. This condition causes blistering of the skin in sunlight. As the blisters often result in scarring, she began getting tattoos as a way to cover up the scars. Unfortunately, the tattoos do not prevent the skin from blistering.

Even if she have skin problem porphyria, she don’t have to torture herself by completely tattooed her whole body so colorfully and beautifully.I really admire her guts to do what she did. Bravo ! Only hope she won’t regret her action one day.
