Aussie attempts world record with Simpsons covered back

A PRISON warden is attempting to break the Guinness World Records with his back tattoo of 203 characters from the popular cartoon series, The Simpsons.

Michael Baxter has spent almost $12,000 on getting his back inked, which he estimated as 130 hours under the needle over the past year.

The tattoo includes all of the main characters as well as supporting characters and popular scenes and locations like Moe’s Tavern.


To claim the world record Baxter has to defeat New Zealands Lee Weir, who has 41 Homer Simpsons tattooed on his left arm.

Mr Baxter’s tattoo has pushed him onto the international stage, with pictures of his tattoos being spread all over the world via the internet.
