Woman Gets Tattooed From Head to Toe (Including Genitals), Spends Almost $27,000
An ink-loving California woman has spent around $27,000 on covering her whole body with tattoos.
32-year-old Julia Nuno, first tattoed herself when she was 18, but in the past 3 years, she has spent 234 hours of her time to get covered in ink from head to toe.
Julia, who works as a carer, has spent an enormous amount of cash on tattoos despite her family’s concerns. She even went as far as tattooing her genitals earlier in November.
Julia’s next goal is to tattoo her whole face, which is the last remaining clean space on her body. The tattoos will consist of ‘geometric flowers’.
“It’s taken me quite a while, I started getting tattooed as soon as I was old enough. It’s only over the last few years that I have been going constantly.
I started out small with a hibiscus flower on my chest but it just ended up growing.”
“I had no intention of collecting or getting a suit but somewhere down the line I just decided to go all the way. Now I can’t stop.”
In the past 3 years, Julia has spent many hours every week adding to her ink experiment.
She admits that it is the process of being tattooed is what is getting her wanting more, adding that normally she lets the tattooist choose the design.
“For a long time I told myself and other people that I would never shave my head to get it tattooed, I said: “that’s crazy”.
But when I ran out of space on my body it was the next obvious part. I feel like the more tattooed I am the more irritating it feels to see empty space.
When I’m finished I’m going to go over my existing suit restoring the colours and existing lines. The sessions are really special to me, the art is nice but it’s the actual tattooing sessions that I’m really addicted to.
A lot of times I let the man who tattoos me pick the art. I have ideas about what I want to get but usually, it’s what he chooses,” she said.
Even though her family was terribly worried about her, Julia never intended to stop and plans to cover her face in ink very soon.
She added that while some people find her tattoos disturbing, others have been fascinated by them.
She went on to say:
“The people I work with are very accepting and look past it but I think some of my family have problems with how many tattoos I have.
They weren’t surprised when I shaved my head to have my head tattooed but my mum doesn’t like face tattoos so I know she won’t be a fan when I have that done, but I feel like I have to do it.”
“People are fascinated and they do look at me, a lot of people want to touch them as well which can be unnerving when they do it without asking.
It hasn’t made much of a difference in a romantic sense, some people are really into it and like me even more for my tattoos and others are put off but it’s what I want to do and it makes me happy, so I don’t worry too much about what other people think.”
