Meet The Man Who Has 203 'Simpsons' Characters Tattoed On His Back

This guy loves getting ink as much as Homer loves getting doughnuts.

Michael Baxter, an Australian prison officer, got 203 characters from "The Simpsons" tattooed on his back in a bid for a Guinness World Record.

Baxter reportedly spent 130 hours getting work done by artist Jade Baxter-Smith, shelling out $12,000.

The 52-year-old grandfather, who lives near Melbourne, says he's a big "Simpsons" fan. (Why are we not surprised?)

"I wanted to get something which was unique, which nobody else had or would even think of getting," Baxter told the Daily Mail.

Baxter said his love for tattoos began more than a decade ago, Australia's Herald Sun reported. "The Simpsons" work required 15 sittings over a year.

It’s an addiction,” he told the Herald Sun. “Once you get one you want more and more."

Colorful renderings of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and other inhabitants of Springfield create quite a skin-mural tribute.

Baxter said in the video above that he's vying to create a Guinness World Record for most cartoon characters tattooed on one person. In a related Guinness mark already established, Lee Weir holds the record for "Most tattoos of the same cartoon character tattooed on the body," with 41 images of Homer Simpson.

A rep for Guinness was not immediately available to comment.
