Bizarre Tattoos - Woman with 1896 Tattoo Map of Hometown on Back
Looking for something unique, but not wanting to simply copy what everyone else considered unique, a couple years ago Britta Oelschlaeger went on a search for something that would suit her.
That journey literally took about 10 years before she stumbled upon a 1896 map of her hometown of Hannover in Germany.
One of the parameters guiding Britta was she wanted it to cover her back.
Saying she loves maps, when she found the old one of Hannover, she jumped at the chance to have it inked on her back.
It tooks about 7 hours just for the outline you see in the photo to be completed, and a lot more for it to be colored in.
