Who turned herself into a tiger?
When Katzen Hobbes was a toddler, she had dreams where she saw herself covered in tiger stripes. When she was 18, she started making that dream a reality. Now, at the age of 40, 90 per cent of Katzen’s body is covered just in stripes. According to Huffington Post, she considers her body to be like a sculpture. Most of the tattoos were etched between the ages of 18 and 28, and more than 227 different tattoo artists have inked her, including 23 at one time. Katzen works as a tattoo artist in Austin and as a sideshow performer for the 999 Eyes Freakshow.
