Man Wants the Flag of Every Country Tattooed on His Body


Having the goal of tattooing the flag of every country in the world on his whole body, a man decided to change his name to Guinness and eventually be recorded in the Guinness Book of Records.

It is worth mentioning that the 67-year-old Guiness Rishi from India has already been registered in the book four times. He managed to build the tallest sugar cube tower in the world and adopt the world's oldest adoptee - his 61-year-old brother-in-law.

Currently the man looks forward to tattoo 220 flags on his body (201 recognized states plus the flags of such nations as Scotland and Wales). The whole process is expected to last for 3 years and will cost him about $21,100. You can find more information on extraordinary people here at - please check the links at the bottom of the article. At the moment he features 6 flags on his face, including the flags of India, the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Cyprus, and the Indian Congress Party. According to Rishi, his face will include the most important flags. He believes that if the tattoo of one flag will measure 1-inch, his head will be covered with 60 flags, reports

When there will be not one empty spot on his head, the rest of the flags will be added on his neck down in alphabetical order. Rishi said that he highly appreciates that fact that people consider his an extraordinary person.
