Lucky Diamond Rich - The World's Most Tattooed Person

Lucky Diamond Rich (born 1971, New Zealand) is "the world's most tattooed person" (a title formerly held by Tom Leppard), and has tattoos covering his entire body, including the inside of his foreskin, mouth and ears. He holds the Guinness world record as of 2006, being 100 percent tattooed.

He is also a performance artist and street performer whose act includes sword-swallowing, unicycling and juggling.

As a young boy, he read about and began to have recurring thoughts of the most tattooed men and women. It did not go much further than just a thought until he got his first tattoo, it was of a small juggling club on his hip.

He is an accomplished sword-swallower. Along with the Space Cowboy (real name Chayne Hultgren) he was jointly the first person to perform a double-sword swallowing while suspended upside-down.

He is credited as "Lucky Rich" on vocals for the 1998 5-track "Skin" EP by the band "Primitive Ghost". The lineup included Baby Lemonade (Vocals), Michael Sheridan (Guitar), FAB (Percussion), Bryan St. James (Programming) and Ollie Olsen (Programming). A video clip for the title track "Skin" was screened on ABC rage (TV program) 4 September 1998.
