Kat Von D at Guinness Book of World Records


Kat Von D makes her way into the Guinness Book of World Records for inking most tattoos in a 24 hours period.

On Friday noon she sat down for a contineous session of 24 hours to ink 400 tattoos at her High Voltage Tattoo parlor. Without food… without cigrette… and with just three breaks… she made the Guinness World Record for a cause as the money collected on the event will be donated to Vitamin Angels. The tattoos cost 20 bucks, and every 20 saved 80 kids from going blind. 400 x 80 = 32,000 kids, she said.

“During the entire 24 hour period, i never ate, and kept my consumptions of liquid to a bare minimum, to make sure i wouldnt have to stop tattooing to go to the bathroom at any point. i put on nicotine patches, so i wouldnt take any cigerette breaks. And during the entire 24 hours i took a maximum 3 breaks of no more than about 3 minutes, to drink an energy drink closer to the end, and to change into sweats at another point and stretch my hands which were starting to ache pretty fuckin bad.”

She also Apologized for inconvenience and Thanked all for being so supportive in realization of this record.
