A dedicated Marvel Comics fan recently broke the record for having a lot of tattoos featuring characters from the company’s vast library of superheroes and villains.
The Guinness Book of World Records awarded Rick Scolamiero, who hails from Canada, the record for most Marvel comic book characters tattooed on the body.
Scolamiero got his first ink back in 2011 — a tattoo of Spider-Man. The super fan now has a total of 31 figures from the Marvel Comics universe on his body.
Check him out below:
The original plan for Scolamiero was to get a sleeve done that portrayed his favourite Marvel heroes and villains. But as anyone with tattoos knows, one tattoo often leads to another.
Currently Scolamiero’s Marvel tattoos consist of:
- Mystique – neck
- Galactus – left shoulder, top
- Silver Surfer – left tricep
- Phoenix – left inner bicep
- Wolverine – left inner forearm
- Spider-Man – left outer forearm
- Black Widow – left abdomen
- Spider-Man 2099 – left buttock
- Doc Octopus – left hip
- Mary Jane – left outer quadricep
- Black Cat – left inner quadricep
- Gwen Stacy – left upper hamstring
- Green Goblin – left lower hamstring
- Venom – left knee
- Groot – left inner calf
- Rocket – left inner calf
- Gamora – left back calf
- Star Lord – left outer calf
- Drax – left outer calf
- Daredevil – left inside ankle
- Deadpool – right inside ankle
- Red Skull – right inside calf
- Captain America – right inside calf
- Loki – right outer calf
- Thor – right outer calf
- Iron Man – right outer quadricep
- Fin Fang Foom – right quadricep
- Hulk – right inner quadricep
- Thanos – right hamstring
- Ultron – right hip
- Vision – right buttock
He said: “I fell in love with the artist’s work and wanted to continue to see what else we could come up with regarding tattoos. I have been a Marvel comic lover since I was small and growing up we didn’t have much, but I always had my Marvel comics and Marvel trading cards.
“They actually got me through some tough times so the idea of having them on my body forever just really appealed to me.”
Just last week, another fan was rewarded by Marvel for watching ‘Avengers?: Infinity War’ 43 times!
The lengths fans would go for their heroes.
