Tattoo artist Paul Blackhall has created a kind of world record for etching Glen Keizer for 42 hours and 10 minutes. Though the marathon tattoo was inked last year in September in the central western NSW city, it’s been given official status now by the Guinness Book of Records in London.
The attempt broke the previous longest tattoo session record set in Melbourne by two hours and 49 minutes.
Glen Keizer said:
It was definitely very difficult, it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life so hopefully no-one will beat it for quite a while. If it does get broken at some stage in the future we’d sit down and probably make sure that we increase the time by probably 20 or 30 per cent to make it a lot harder for the next person.
Glen Keizer is still not satisfied, the gravity of ink is like that only, you know, and is planning to break his own record in the coming years.
