His huge back tattoo of Simpsons characters means he might just make the Guinness World Record for most cartoon character tattoos.

He told Mail Online: "'Guinness have accepted my application, but I have a lot of paperwork to fill out."

Baxter said he began to fall in love with tattoos over a decade ago, but only recently began to get obsessed with cartoons.
