10. Julia Gnuse (died on August 11, 2016.)
We have another dead individual on the list and this time around it is a woman.. Julia Gnuse is also known as the Illustrated Lady.
Julia Gnuse had 95% of her body (including her face) covered in tattoos and held the Guinness Record for being the most tattooed woman in the world till she died.
The need to tattoo her entire body was as a result of a disease called porphyria, a condition in which sunlight results in blistering of the skin.
So the tattoos started multiplying as a way of covering up the scars, which were deep as third degree burns.
Unlike the majority of those on this list, her desire to use tattoo was simply a desperate attempt to cover the many scars on her skin. The very tattoos that she would make attempts to remove through laser treatments.
