95% Of His Body is Covered in Tattoos and Now He’s Unrecognizable

One simple tattoo can be a very difficult decision. What color do I want it to be? How large? Where on my body? and the big big question, will I regret this tattoo down the line? Some people have regrets for tattoos they got years ago. Some people simply regret where they get the tattoo. With all of the factors, where to get the tattoo, the size of the tattoo, the color.. it can be overwhelming.

Most people still do not have any tattoos but some people get one tattoo and they get hooked. Fully enjoying their newfound ink. They go all in. One man did such a thing until 95% of his body was covered in tattoos.

This tattoo fanatic is actually unrecognizable in old pictures before he inked nearly all of his body. Approximately 95% of it is completely covered in ink now.

Tristan Weigelt, 25 years old, has spent over $54,000 to cover a full 95 percent of his body in tattoos and he now looks like a totally different person within a period of just 5 years. If you met him five years ago and he walked past you on the street today, you wouldn’t even recognize him.

The labeled ‘tattoo apprentice’ has now undergone over 260 painful hours with a needle digging into his skin and there are only a free areas that are free of ink. The palms of his hands, his genitals, only the bottom of his feet and his ears are left free from ink.

“It’s kind of weird looking at myself without all the tattoos,” he told the Daily Star.

“But funnily enough I still feel exactly the same as before on the inside.”

Tristan was born in America but now lives in Copenhagen, Denmark and has become something of a celebrity with a huge Instagram following because of all of the ink.

“A lot of people stare and are pretty fascinated. My friends now say that it’s almost like walking around with a celebrity.”

He said getting his face and head were the most painful, comparing it to being to being scraped with a metal brush.

“It was six full day sessions taking between five and six hours and the pain was probably an eight out of 10. It’s like being scraped with a metal brush.”

Tristan shared that his tattoos have no hidden meaning but he was simply inspired by Japanese designs.

“To anyone out there considering a tattoo, get the tattoo you like,” he said.

“Get what you love and what makes sense to you. I see so many people worried about a certain tattoo fitting them or it not being their style. If you like it – then get it.”

Tristan posted before and after picture on his Instagram showing him unrecognizable after his tattoos.

“Nobody would’ve told me my tattoos would have fit me if I asked somebody five years ago,” he said.

“But now, nobody can imagine me without them.”
