This woman doesn’t like Eminem. This woman LOVES Eminem. While you may say that you’re the biggest Eminem stan, this woman with 28 dedicated to Marshall Mathers takes her obsessive fandom to another level.

Guinness World Records has announced that Nikki Patterson now holds the world record for having the most portraits of the same musician on her body. The 35-year-old superfan set the world record by getting 16 tattoos of Eminem’s face on her skin. She has 52 tattoos in total, 28 of which are dedicated to Slim Shady, according to BBC.

“I heard Stan when I was 14 and had never heard anything like that before,” Patterson said. “It blew me away.”

“He’s been the one constant in my life,” said Patterson, who is from the British town of Aberdeen, a port city in northeast Scotland.

The female Stan said she got her first tattoo, a “random” sun with a smiley face, when she was 18-years-old. At age 19, she got her first Eminem tattoo.

“The portraits began three years ago, and I loved everything about them. I adored them and had to get more,” she told the BBC. “He’s been the one constant in my life, and I have seen him perform live.”

Patterson’s Slim Shady tattoos are on her arms, legs, chest, and fingers. Besides portraits of Eminem, Patterson also has Eminem’s album titles inked on her body, including The Slim Shady LP, The Marshall Mathers LP, The Eminem Show, Encore, Relapse, Recovery, The Marshall Mathers LP2, Revival, and Kamikaze. Patterson’s favorite Eminem verse, which is from ‘Till I Collapse, tatted on her skin.

Patterson goes by the appropriate name of “Crazy Eminem Lady” on Instagram where she shares photos and videos of her ink dedicated to Slim Shady.

The Eminem superfan can’t compete with this Australian man who so obsessed with The Simpsons that he got over 200 tattoos of cartoon characters from the hit TV series.

A new scientific study that was published this week claims tattoos could damage sweat glands. The recent study titled “Skin tattooing impairs sweating during passive whole-body heating” was published in the Journal of Applied Physiology, and found evidence that skin with tattoos perspires less than ink-less skin.
