Tattoo-obsessed woman has only one area of her body left to ink!
Pori, Finland - Tattoo enthusiast Aleksandra Jasmin has 99% of her body covered with ink to feel more comfortable in her skin. Although she hates how it feels to get them done, Jasmin admitted to being addicted to the art form, and is excited yet fearful to get the last 1% of herself tattooed.
After seeing her parents' tattoos, Jasmin became fascinated by body ink at a young age. When she was 9 years old, she decided that someday, she would get a face tattoo. Today, Jasmin admits she's addicted to ink because it makes her feel more comfortable with herself.
In an interview for the truly web series Hooked On The Look, Jasmin admitted that her addiction stemmed from self acceptance, saying "I feel more like me when my skin color is whatever I want it to be."
Flash forward to the age of 30, and Jasmin has 99% of her body covered with ink, including her face.
Rather than seeing her tattoos as individual, stand-alone pieces, she views them as one, cohesive body of work that she's very close to completing. However, fear has kept her away from the needle.
Even though Jasmin loves the end result, she's not a fan of the process – especially when it comes to the pain.
Jasmin had one area left to complete her body masterpiece
The last area she has left to cover is her inner thigh, an area Jasmin's been scared to have done, even though she's endured multiple face tattoos - something her husband talked her into pursuing.
While she had wanted face tattoos practically her entire life, she was always a "wuss" about getting them, until she met her now husband. Since they linked up, the pair have pushed each other to level up their face tattoo game one bit at a time.
As the source of her inspiration, her mom fully approves of the art Jasmin has crafted all over her body, even if she's a little biased. She told truly: "I love them all. I can't see them when I'm looking at her. I look at my daughter, not those tattoos. It's very good if the first tattoo on your face, you write 'mother' here."
At which point, Jasmin proudly points to a tattoo on her forehead that reads "Äiti", which translates to "mother" in English.
