Will the realest Slim Shady fan please stand up. Unless you’re Nikki Patterson, go ahead and sit back down.
According to Guinness World Records, Nikki, is one devoted super fan, tatting herself up with a record breaking twenty-eight tattoos all dedicated to Eminem, so clearly all you other slim fans are just imitating.
Yes, that's right, twenty-eight tattoos, all devoted to Marshall Mathers, not the delicious chocolatey candy.
The nail technician from Aberdeen (that’s in Scotland) was only 19 years old when she got her first tattoo, starting with a "random" sun with a smiley face. Now thirty-five, she has fifty-two tattoos, and holds the record for having the most portraits, sixteen, of the same musician on her skin, appearing across her arms, legs, chest and fingers.
Nikki’s love for the Detroit rapper began at a young age, "I heard Stan when I was 14 and had never heard anything like that before,” she said, “it blew me away.” Nikki says that Em has “been the one constant in my life,” and when she “started to like tattoos,” we guess covering up her body with Eminem themed body art, apparently made sense.
“The portraits began three years ago, and I loved everything about them,” she expressed, “I adored them and had to get more.” Well, mission accomplished Nikki.
Nikki even admitted that when it comes to her tattoo amount, “even I am losing count.” Eminem did say to “lose yourself,” but of course, he meant “in the music.” Well, when almost you’re entire body is covered with tattoos of his face, his lyrics are open to interpretation.
