  Most Tattooed Woman - Julia Gnuse sets world record
  NEW YORK CITY, USA -- Julia Gnuse, 55, from California, a.k.a the ĎIllustrated Ladyí started getting herself inked after doctors diagnosed her with skin condition called porphyria, which causes the skin to blister when exposed to sunlight and now she has 95 per cent of her body covered with tattoo - setting the new world record for the Most Tattooed Woman.

    Julia, The Most Tattooed Woman in The World, has inscribed jungle scenes, cartoons and images of her favourite actors on her skin, Daily Mail reports. She got her first tattoo on her leg before moving to stomach, arms and back.

   She revealed that tattoos cover up the scars on her skin.

   California-based Julia unveiled her tattoos at a book event in New York.

   "I did this for the reason of covering scarring from the blisters. They get as deep as three degree burn," the Couriermail quoted her, as saying.

   The World's Most Tattooed Woman added: "I had a friend who is a plastic surgeon, who suggested tattooing my skin the same color to the scarring that I had, seeing if we can match my just pale-looking skin that I had.

    That didnít work. We tried it. It was very difficult to match that. So I had the idea of a colorful tattoo, then I got hooked. I got addicted."

     The Most Tattooed Woman in The World chose ink over medication, as the treatment would have put her at risk of blindness. All the tattoos on her body have been created by one tattoo artist.
