  • Tats are so identified with Florida culture that when author Lynn Waddell put together a book called Fringe Florida all about the Sunshine States nudist resorts, UFO fans and exotic wildlife breeders, the cover featured the title tattooed across a womans back, along with a pair of pistols.

  • The Guinness Book of World Records recently named her the Most Tattooed Woman Alive (that last word is an important distinction).
  • Last year they were declared the Most Tattooed Senior Citizen Couple, which I like to think of as the Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night Award.
  • A UPI dispatch notes that the couple also each hold an additional record as Guttenberg has the most feathers tattooed on the body with 216 and Helmke has the most skulls tattooed on the body at 376.
