Nagpur’s tattoo artist Pradeep Mulani, who holds the Guinness World Record of being the fastest tattoo maker, is now set to put another feather on his cap by making a world record of Longest Tattoo Session for Harvard World Records.
The 23-year-old tattoo artist was invited by Harvard World Records to break an existing world record of the Longest Tattoo Session, which is currently owned by a person from Italy for continuously making tattoos for straight 60 hours and 30 minutes (single session).
Pradeep, who is engraving his art by inking people for the last six years, spoke to Nation Next about this new adventure.
He said, This is a very big opportunity for me. I was excited when I received Harvards invitation, but I know that there is a lot at stake. It’s not about me anymore; it’s about my city and India, my motherland.
He further mentioned that he aimed at making tattoos for straight 70-75 hours, which would be considered as a single session. He would be engraving tattoos on 25 bodies (full body excluding face).
The event is set to begin in the first week of August and a team of one doctor supported by two nurses would be with him during his performance to check on his health.
It will be a live program, which will be telecasted in London and Dubai. This record is for the longest session, not for how many tattoos can one make in a particular amount of time, he added.
Mulani already had made a world record as the fastest tattoo maker by engraving 422 tattoos in 16 hours.
In the entire world, Mulani was the only candidate Harvard had approached to break Italys record.
Speaking about the details of the event, he said, I will get a 20-minute-break after every four hours. I aim to cross the 70-hour-mark but I’m ready to push myself to beyond the boundaries. I trust my speed; I can easily make more than 1000 tattoos in less than 70 hours.
He concluded his say by saying that he was not overconfident about the record, he was just highly optimistic and positive about it. As he had done something similar like this in the past when he was just a 22-year-old, he knew the basics and logic of the tricky art.
Also, he opined that he had the full support of family and friends, who always stood by his side.
Mulani currently owns a tattoo parlour- Stamp tattoo studio in Nagpur and is preparing for the big event, which could change his life forever.
