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.
