Marcos Motolo joins RankBrasil with the highest number of Iron Maiden tattoos. He has about 53% of the body tattooed with figures referring to the British group. The first was made in 1999.
According to the record holder, all drawings were made in three dimensions and are not filled by option. “I had seen people with their body very painted and the color prevented seeing the image completely. You could not see the details. So I chose not to color. In this way, it does not change my anatomy. ”
The tattoo artist born in Cornelio Procopio, in Paraná, received the title with great joy. “It’s cool why RankBrasil is highly regarded. This achievement shows that everything we have done has not stopped. It’s a reward for us. It shows that it was not in vain. ”
For now, the fan does not intend to make new marks. However, he does not rule out the possibility if his record is threatened. “There are two people trying to get past my number of tattoos, one person in Hungary and another in Europe. If they get too close, I’ll do more. ”
It was still at school, at age 9, that Motolo fell in love with the heavy metal ensemble. “I met the band because of a friend from Japan who showed me a magazine. Here in Brazil was not yet known. It caught my attention that name that looked like a puzzle with the geometric letters. I looked and I began to hear. ”
