London, August 4 (ANI): An Indian-origin man named Guinness Rishi has planned to get tattoos of every national flag on the planet over his entire body, in a bid to enter the Guinness Book of World Records.

The 67-year-old man is considering covering himself in 220 different banners in his quest to become a walking global flag-pole.

He already has six tattoos-Canada, Union Jack, India, USA, Cyprus and the Indian Congress Party-on his face.

He is so keen on entering the record book that he even changed his named to Guinness.

He hopes that his challenge will complete in three years.

His plan is to cover his head and face with the most important one-inch flags, before inking from his neck down in alphabetical order.

"I will get eight tattoos done on bony areas such as my face each month and up to 16 on fleshy areas such as my stomach," the Telegraph quoted him as saying.

"I am tattooing my entire body including my private parts, but I am not sure which flag I will be sticking there. In the first phase, I believe that I can put 60 tattoos on my head and then we will start working on my body," he added.

While Guinness already holds four certified world records, he feels that his latest challenge will be a crowning glory for India.

"People consider me an extraordinary person, not an ordinary person," he said.

"People who have no money wish to do something in their lives, so the poor people try to break records by their strength or their will," he added.

His records include 'taking on the world's oldest adoptee', after he legally took custody of his 61-year-old brother-in-law.

Guinness also built the tallest sugar cube tower in the world, which stood at 64 inches. (ANI)
