Tom Leppard, also known as Leopard Man or the Leopard Man of Skye, is a former soldier[1] previously considered by the Guinness Book of World Records to be the world's most tattooed man.[2] He is said to have spent £5,500 on his extensive body modifications, which cover his skin nearly entirely with a leopard-like coloured pattern. Until 2008, he lived in a small bothy (hut) on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, travelling by kayak to the mainland to buy supplies and pick up his pension once a week. He then moved to a larger house in Broadford, Skye. Currently resides in a nursing home on the outskirts of the city of Inverness.[3]
