Julia Gnuse commonly known by the nickname The Illustrated Lady or The Irvine Walker was born in 1955 and has 95% of her body including her face covered in tattoos. She held the Guinness World Records for being the most tattooed woman in the world. In her mid 30s, Gnuse developed porphyria, a condition in which sunlight results in blistering of the skin. As the blisters often result in scars, she began getting tattoos as a way to cover up the scars, which can get as deep as third degree burns. Her friend who was a plastic surgeon had suggested she get her skin tattooed in a pale skin tone color, similar to the color of her scars. This was attempted but didn’t turn out the way they had hoped. The tattoos do not prevent the skin from blistering as they are purely aesthetic.
