Often people want to have at least one tattoo in their life. It could be someone’s name or a sign or something that they would be happy to see. People get one or two tattoos made on their bodies, but 72-year-old Wolfgang Kirsh was not happy with one or two tattoos. The German-born elder caught such a craze that he got tattoos done on 98 percent of his body. He has become Germany’s most tattooed man.
Wolfgang, who calls himself Magneto, has made a total of 86 tattoos and 17 implants on his body. His tattoos are made on the hands, face, feet, and even the eyes and lips. Magneto has not yet got tattoos done on the sole of the feet. Some of his implants have magnets attached to them, due to which small things made of iron stick to his body. That is why he has kept his nickname Magneto.
Spent around Rs 21,84,861 for getting tattooed
The reason for Wolfgang getting tattooed on his body is also very special. Actually, people in East Germany used to see tattoos very badly and for the post office workers, it was like a dream. Magneto had his first tattoo done at the age of 46 and he had tears in his eyes at that time. He was a post office worker but wanted to stand out from the crowd.
It took Magneto 20 years to separate himself from the world crowd, but he is not sad at all. He had to go 240 times to get the tattoo done and it took about 720 hours during this time. That is, he spent almost a month of his life getting tattooed only by sitting in a chair. Magneto spent around Rs 21,84,861 to get the tattoo done. Now he is often called for modeling and photoshoots. He has now become the highest tattooer in Germany.
