And you thought getting one tattoo hurt... Now imagine that x 36.

Yes, you read that correctly. This past weekend, the world record for getting the most tattoos at the same time was broken by a very dedicated collector.

This guy, formerly known as Mathew Whelan, who changed his name and is now officially known as "King of Inkland King Body Art The Extreme Ink-ite" broke the world record at the Needle Gangstas tattoo expo this past weekend in the UK.

Already sporting over 2000 tattoos, around 40 piercings, and other various extreme body modifications- King (we'll call him that for short) decided it wasn't enough, and was like, "I think i'll get 36 more today." At the same time, obviously. Time is money, ya'll. Life is short.

And well- ask and you shall receive. So sure enough, King hopped into a harness and got just what he wanted: 36 people tattooed him at the same time, appropriately labeling him with the numbers 1-36 in blank spaces all over his body.

"It was great but also very painful. I've never had more than one done at a time so it was quite scary.. Once they started it was very difficult because it was constant pain."
Which just goes to show- no matter how many tattoos you have, or how tough you are- They still. Fucking. Hurt.

And actually, as a matter of fact- he also held the previous record, except that was only 29 tattoos at one time. Amateur shit, you know?

Having received his first tattoo at age 16, it's safe to say that it left him wanting more. He has both eyeballs tattooed, his entire face, and even has a silicone implant in his chest that- once settled- will reveal the impression of a skull. He has also had his nipples removed in order to create a smoother canvas for more art- and get this. He kept his nipples. They're in a jar in his freezer. You can't make this shit up, ya'll.

Oh and also, his penis is blue. He has a blue penis. This is not a joke. Google it. He talks about it a lot.

So, there's that. Now you've heard all about a new world record, and you've un-officially met a man with no nipples and a blue penis. That's something you don't get to say every day. You're welcome.
