Woman covers 90% of body in tattoos to be ‘daddy’s girl’

Nadine Anderson’s devotion to her dad is more than skin deep — so this 23-year-old is going to painstaking lengths to pay homage to her pops by inking all of her body.

“My dad had two sleeves when I was growing up and I always wanted them,” says the self-proclaimed “classic daddy’s girl” from Dundee, Scotland. “I was constantly looking at Pinterest forums and stuff; looking at new tattoo styles that were coming out and body modifications, deciding how I wanted to look when I turned 18.”

The healthcare assistant says she got her first tattoo — a tree of life on her forearm — as soon as she was “legally allowed.” The brown-eyed blonde says her ink addiction was instantaneous and within a month she was back in the tattoo shop.

“Growing up and seeing my dad covered in [tattoos] I always knew I wanted to be like him and have all that kind of stuff,” she tells Media Drum World. “I discussed my first tattoo with my dad, and he supported my decision, [saying] ‘As long as you’re sure you want to do it.’ So I went and booked my first tattoo with my dad.”

Over the last five years, Nadine’s look has evolved.

In addition to her extreme “blackout” (full-coverage) tattoo, Anderson also has a variety of piercings, scarification on her head — and a split tongue. She flew to Germany for the mouth work due to laws in the UK that prevent piercing parlors from carrying out the procedure.

Anderson says she’s lost count of how many tattoos now make up her “whole bodysuit” — but she claims to have spent about £15,000 GBP (about $19,400 USD) covering up 90 percent of her body.

And she’s not quite finished yet.

“I think I would add a little bit more under my right eye because there’s spaces I want to fill up eventually, but that’s all I would probably add is just a little tiny piece on it because I think I’ve got quite a lot on it now,” she says, matter-of-factly.

“You can still tell what my features are like naturally, and I wouldn’t want to take away from that because I think that’s the beauty of that tattoo.”
