Australian grandpa gets 203 awesome 'Simpsons' tattoos
An Australian grandfather spent 130 hours proving he is way cooler than you.
Check out 52-year-old grandfather of two Michael Baxter. He's covered his body with 203 tattoos from the long-running series "The Simpsons."
You've got your Homer Simpson (Baxter's favorite), your Bart, your Marge, your Lisa, your Maggie. The mural also includes many side characters -- and even shows locations, like Moe's Tavern.
The Daily Mail reports that the cartoon landscape was completed last year. Baxter and his tattoo artist Jade Baxter Smith have been traveling to tattoo expos to show off the impressive collage.
Baxter is eligible to beat New Zealand's Lee Weir, who holds the title of 'most tattoos of the same cartoon character tattooed on the body' in the Guinness Book of World Records with 41 tattoos of Homer Simpson on his arm. Baxter has 203 tats from the same show -- not the same character -- but he can still make a claim for the top spot. And, according to Baxter, Guinness accepted his application.
Baxter tells the Daily Mail that he's a huge fan of "The Simpsons." Um, we hope so! The hundreds of cartoon tats have set him back the equivalent of roughly 10,000 US dollars.
The artistic homage to the show comes just in time for "The Simpsons'" 25th anniversary, which was in September of this year. It is the longest running scripted primetime series ever, and has won over 30 Primetime Emmy Awards.
