A woman in Scotland has 90 per cent of her body covered in tattoos as a “wild tribute” to her father. 

“My dad had two sleeves when I was growing up and I always wanted them,” Nadine Anderson told the New York Post.

“I was constantly looking at Pinterest forums and stuff; looking at new tattoo styles that were coming out and body modifications, deciding how I wanted to look when I turned 18.”

The 23-year-old healthcare assistant got her first tattoo as soon as she was “legally allowed”. It was at that moment that her tattoo obsession began, prompting her to return for another just one month later.

In just five years, Nadine’s look has transformed. She has now “lost count” of how many tattoos make up her “whole bodysuit” but claims that she has spent close to $AU30,000 covering up 90 per cent of her body. She also has various piercing, scarification on her head and a split tongue, which she flew to Germany for as UK laws prevent piercing parlours from carrying out such a procedure.

So, what’s next?

“I think I would add a little bit more under my right eye because there’s spaces I want to fill up eventually, but that’s all I would probably add is just a little tiny piece on it because I think I’ve got quite a lot on it now,” she told the publication.

“You can still tell what my features are like naturally, and I wouldn’t want to take away from that because I think that’s the beauty of that tattoo.”
