Tattoo Expo in Venezuela – level 2

10-02-2016 07:00

People held the sixth year of the Venezuela Tattoo Expo. People with extreme body modifications turned up to the event.

The event brings together hundreds of tattoo and piercing artists and thousands of fans. A Guinness World Record holder for most piercings came, too. He is from Germany and has 450 piercings on his face and body.

A man, known as Red Skull, got his first tattoo when he was just 12. He holds the Guinness World Record for the most modifications in the world.

Difficult words: hold (to organise, to happen), modification (changing something), turn up (to arrive somewhere).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
