This tattooed twosome shares Guinness World Record for 'most modified married couple'
Saturday, January 11th, 2014

Tattoos: check. Body piercings: check. Ear expanders, microdermal implants, dental implants: check, check, check.

Meet Gabriela and Victor Hugo Peralta. She's from Argentina and he's from Uruguay. They share the Guinness World Record for "most modified married couple."

Not only are their bodies covered in tattoos, they boast at least 50 piercings between them, as well as decorative scars and implants under the skin.

They were among the extraordinarily adorned bodies at Tattoo Week Rio in Brazil's Rio de Janeiro early this month.

Yasuyoshi Chiba, an award-winning Agence France-Presse photographer, caught up with the Peralta couple and many others at the festival.
