Julia Gnuse has her name in the Gunnies Book of World Records now as being the world’s most tattooed woman. Julia Gnuse is 54 years of age and belongs to California. She is all about the ink on her body with 95 percent of her body covered in tattoos. Except for her upper lip area and the skin near her ears, there is a hardly a spot where ink is not visible. Julia Gnuse has left Michelle “Bombshell” McGee and KatD the so called L.A Ink, far behind in the tattoo race.
Julia Gnuse claims that her body art is not just to attract attention or a vanity project but is actually like a veil behind which she hides her scars. Julia Gnuse suffers from cutaneous porphyria which is a rare skin disease in which there is an overproduction of enzymes in her body. This causes Julia’s skin to blister even in moderate sunlight. Julia Gnuse says that these blisters go as deep as third degree burns and her doctor friend suggested that she could get her body tattooed to match the color of her scars. Julia Gnuse surely took his advice!
