Britain’s Most Tattooed Man

Britain’s most tattooed man has spent 300 hours in the chair, spent roughly £20,000 on ink and has legally changed his name to ‘Body Art’. Born Mathew Whelan, the 33-year-old says body modification is a culture, a way of life and almost a religion. King Body Art The Extreme Ink-ite, or King of Inkland, wants to educate the world on his colourful beliefs. Body Art, from Birmingham, said “I’ve got so much respect for the history of body modification”.
