A BODY art fan boasting a record 864 insect tattoos has revealed that he’s actually scared of bugs.
Michael Amoia, 47, was covered from head to toe in terrifying ants after being bitten for the first time at the age of 21.
But the New Yorker said that instead of loving insects, he was actually afraid of them.
I said The New York Post: “A lot of people think I like bugs – actually quite the opposite.
“I’m afraid of bugs, I hate bugs.”
Amoia – who says that ink is a way to face her fears – was recognized by Guinness World Records as the person with the most insect tattoos last October.
The recorded number is 864 although music producer Michael is said to have a total of 889 ink errors.
His tattoos include spiders, spiders, and scorpions.
Amoia said he hopes to turn the drawings into an NFT with the proceeds going to a children’s charity.
He added: “I have a lot of intrusive fears, and insects and bugs are part of my fear.”
Earlier this month, factory worker Tanya Davies told The Sun how she regrets getting the word “cursed” tattooed on her face.
