An actor known as 'Britain's most tattooed man' has shared that he has gone tattoo-free for a full year to pay off his £36,000 mortgage.

An actor known as ‘Britain’s most tattooed man’ has revealed he is having some of his ‘risky’ implants removed because he is in danger of losing his entire arm.

King of Ink Land King Body Art The Extreme Ink-ite, formerly known as Mathew Whelan, regularly makes headlines due to his heavily tattooed appearance and has also modified his body with procedures such as nipple removal.

The 44-year-old, from Birmingham, previously revealed how he was kicking his body modification addiction in a bid to pay off his £66,000 mortgage – and now, a year later, he hasn’t had any new tattoos.

In addition to putting the tattoo needle aside, you will also remove some of your modifications, including an implant in your hand.

The 44-year-old previously revealed how he was kicking his body modification addiction in a bid to pay off his £66,000 mortgage – and now, a year later, he has revealed he is still out of ink.

“Unfortunately, the skin has worn away on one side and I’m worried it may tear,” said King Of Ink Land.

Britain’s most tattooed man also shared how almost losing an arm, after his skin began to rot following an implant, helped him pass up the opportunity to continue working with ink.

“I never want to be in a medical situation like I was with my knuckle implant a few years ago.

“Again, the skin was torn, but then it began to rot and fill with plasma that needed to be drained several times.

‘I still have a scar and (his arm is) slightly deformed, but it was removed in time before I was at serious risk of blood poisoning.

‘I can’t let that happen again as it almost cost me my arm, and this was going similarly, so I made the difficult decision to remove this ‘crown’ implant as well before it’s too late.

“I’ve also managed to go a whole year without getting a tattoo and it doesn’t even seem strange to me.

“It’s no longer something I long for or deeply desire.”

King Of Ink Land, whose short name is Body Art, claims he spent more than 1,500 hours under the needle and set the record in February 2016, when 36 tattoo artists worked on him at once.

While he hasn’t kept track of how much it has cost him to date, he says his recent break has helped him pay off almost £36,000 of his mortgage.

He said: ‘My rate will increase quite soon, but I’m on track within my budget.

‘I’m getting off a fixed rate like so many other people, but I hope to be able to fix it again in the future.

‘I’m trying to be reserved and disciplined about my budget plan so I can pull this off.

‘I want to be mortgage-free in the next three years, and I’ll be happy I got it sorted and done.

“That’s life and priorities change, so when you pay for it, an ink session will feel that much more special.”

He added: ‘I am living an abbreviation of my name, B Art, as I am art in my life no matter what others say or think about my tattoos.

‘My last inking was the beginning of the blackout style and I don’t intend to do much of this, but tattooing is a personal art collection for me.

“I want to be able to evolve and change them if I want and then I’ll go off and put another ink on top to achieve my ultimate goal.”
