This Human Comic Book Has The World Record For Most Marvel Character Tattoos

Rick Scolamiero loves comic books, as do many. But instead of just filling his shelves with graphic novels, he decided to cover his body in them. Now, after over 350 hours of being a living canvas for tattoo artists, he holds the official Guinness World Record for most Marvel characters inked on a single body.

Now that’s commitment. Image: YouTube

It all started with Spider-Man back in 2011, and then every month or so he would get a new addition. He initially wanted to limit the characters to tattoo sleeves, but once his arms were completed, his love for everything Marvel eventually led to him covering his entire body in the beautiful, full-colour designs.

He was even able to show off all of his tattoos to Stan Lee himself, who signed Scolamiero’s wrist. That autograph was soon immortalised as – you guessed it – yet another Marvel tattoo on his body.

    • At least this one is kinda cool, there’s some pretty solid ink in there.
      (And some pretty bad looking ones too unfortunately)

      The one that’s always done my head in is one of the most famous, longest fingernails in he world, it’s celebrating laziness and the inability to wipe ones arse.

  • beats my 6 lol.

    love the dedication but it’s a bit of a mess. looks like he’s used different artists and the quality is all over the place. he’s also gone for comic looks for some characters but the movie look for others.

    as long as he’s happy though.
