Tattoo junkie paints 95% of his body, revealing what he looked like only 5 years ago.

Tattoos are only one of many methods to display one’s personality. While some people go with a little tattoo, others go all out and decorate entire body portions.

Tristan Weigelt, a 26-year-old tattoo apprentice covered in extreme body art, grabbed waves when he revealed his pre-tattooed appearance.

Weigelt’s mission to cover 95 percent of his body in tattoos began at the age of 20.

“It’s kind of weird looking at myself without all the tattoos,” he told the Daily Star.

“But funnily enough I still feel exactly the same as before on the inside.”

He described the tattoos on his face and head as the most painful, comparing them to being scratched with a metal brush.

“It was six full day sessions taking between five and six hours and the pain was probably an eight out of 10.”

While many people acquire tattoos with specific meanings in mind, Weigelt claims there are no hidden messages or meanings behind his body art.

After five years, Weigelt had spent $50,000 on tattoos.

Weigelt advises individuals seeking a tattoo to “get what you love and what makes sense to you.” I encounter a lot of folks who are concerned about whether or not a tattoo would suit them. “If you like it, get it.”

Wow. What an amazing transformation!

Would you ever contemplate tattooing your entire body? I’m not certain I would.
