When Katzen Hobbes was a toddler, she had dreams where she saw herself covered in tiger stripes. When she was 18, she started making that dream a reality. Now, at the age of 40, 90 percent of her body is covered in stripes. “I still need a little bit of work under the right armpit and right ear, but I’m pretty close to completion,” Hobbes told The Huffington Post. “But I might add something more.” Hobbes isn’t as catty as she used to be. For 14 years, she had plastic whisker piercings through her facial skin. “I had them removed because I started to feel they affected my field of vision,” she said. She turned to scarification and had six scars on her face to allude to the whiskers.
