The world’s most tattooed woman has been revealed, with 95 % of her body inked.

American Julia Gnuse – aka the illustrated Lady – uses the tatts to cover up a condition she suffers from called porphyria, which causes blisters on the skin when it’s exposed to sunlight.

“I had a friend who is a plastic surgeon, who suggested tattooing my skin to the same colour to the scarring that I had, seeing if we could match my pale-looking skin that I had,” Julia told the Mail On Sunday.

“That didn’t work… so I had the idea of a colourful tattoo. Then I got hooked. I got addicted.”

Fair shout, but personally we’re still cringing from the Chinese character we got when we were 16…
