An Indian man who holds the world record for carrying the highest number of flag tattoos on his body is set to break his own record. Guinness Rishi, formerly called Har Prakash, aged 70, from Delhi, is covered in 305 country flags, 185 maps, 165 mini flags and 2,985 characters. He holds the record for carrying the highest number of flag tattoos on his body. What's more, he's set to break his own record! Rishi's world record officially stands at his 2009 total of 220 flag tattoos and he is now planning to invite the Guinness adjudicators to come update the record so that the new total is recognised. His 22 records include feats such as making the longest will in the world with 489 pages and delivering a pizza from New Delhi to San Francisco. He has also donated his body to the Ripley's Believe It Or Not museum, for it to be preserved and put on display.
