Everything is a sequel, a reboot or based off a popular pre-existing intellectual property. The words "intellectual property" are now used in casual conversation about movies. It is what it is at this point. However, beyond that, the biggest movies are becoming even more specific. They are almost all CGI-laden, special effects-heavy action adventures.

What began simply enough in 2011 with a Spider- Man tattoo on his left forearm has ended for Rick Scolamiero with a Guinness World Record for the most Marvel comic book characters tattooed on the body.

Here’s something to Marvel at: A 36-year-old man from Alberta, Canada just set a Guinness World Record for having the highest number of Marvel comic tattoos on his body, Nerdist reports.

Rick Scolamiero, of Edmonton, boasts 31 Marvel tattoos in total and is inked from his neck down to his feet. What started out as a plan to get a sleeve (full arm tattoo) of his favorite Marvel characters quickly morphed into a full-body makeover.

"I fell in love with the artist’s work and wanted to continue to see what else we could come up with regarding tattoos,” Scolamiero told Guinness World Records. “I have been a Marvel comic lover since I was small and growing up we didn’t have much but I always had my Marvel comics and Marvel trading cards. They actually got me through some tough times so the idea of having them on my body forever just really appealed to me."

Canadian Rick Scolamiero has achieved a new record for most Marvel comic book characters I grew up collecting and reading Guinness World Records books and I never thought I’d ever be a part of it! Polish ink king sets Longest tattoo session world record after marathon two-day attempt.

Wolverine and Spider-Man can be seen on his forearms, the Guardians of the Galaxy trail down his left calf, and LEGO versions of Daredevil and Deadpool adorn his ankles, to name but a few designs. Scolamiero didn’t want to leave any superheroes behind, so he had them inked onto his, well, behind. His left and right buttocks feature depictions of Spider-Man 2099 (a futuristic version of the original) and Vision (from The Avengers), respectively.

He even got Marvel comic artist Stan Lee’s autograph tattooed onto his wrist. In total, he attended one tattoo session per month for the past seven years and endured 350 hours under the needle. Now that’s dedication.

Check out the video below to see Scolamiero show off his tats.
