A north-east superfan has broken the world record for the most tattoos of a musician on her body.
Nikki Paterson, from Bridge of Don, began getting inked at the age of 18 and has since racked up a whopping 47 tattoos.
And 23 of the designs pay tribute to world-renowned rapper Eminem.
And now superfan Nikki has broken a Guinness World Record for her commitment to the musician.
Nikki received confirmation she had broken the world record via email last Thursday.
She said: “I received a confirmation email from Guinness World Records stating that my attempt had been accepted and that I would get a complimentary certificate.
“I was over the moon when I found out. I never really realised how thorough the process would be and I was worried they would come back to me and ask me to do something else, so there’s a sense of relief too.
“I’m really excited and it’s great to be able to share it with people.”
Nikki had to have a dermatologist count her tattoos and measure them, and her attempt had to be verified by representatives from the Guinness World Records as well as two tattoo artists.
She said: “Two tattoo artists and I went to Grand Aura Skin and Wellbeing Clinic on Carden Place. I gave one of the doctors there a list of my tattoos and where they are on my body and we just had to work through that.
“He used a flexible ruler to measure them and he looked at the tattoos using a magnifying glass to ensure that they were real tattoos.
“He wrote a report, the tattoo artists had to fill out a form each and we had to record the whole process.”
