Famous ‘Leopard Man’ Dies At 81.

Tom Leppard LEOPARD MAN OF SKYE SCOTLAND, BRITAIN

The world-famous 'Leopard Man' has passed on to the afterlife at the age of 81, reports confirm. He's remembered for having his body covered from head to toe with spotty tattoos. Thomas Woolridge, was an English-born ex-soldier who held the record of World's Most Tattooed Man for many years.

His artwork is estimated to have cost around £5,500 in total.

Thomas was best known for living a hermit-like existence in a bothy (Scottish word for shelter) on the Isle of Skye for two decades - but in recent years he moved to live in a care home in Inverness, Scotland. Tom Leppard LEOPARD MAN OF SKYE SCOTLAND, BRITAIN - 1993

Thomas was said to have led a solitary life, only traveling by kayak to the mainland for food supplies after which he would return and stay all by himself. He also loved wearing thongs, barely covering his willy so he could get the illusion of being completely naked.

According to a report, he often said he had no regrets about his body art.

It was fun at the start but later turned into an addiction, he admitted. The former World’s Most Tattooed Man used the art as a way of making money initially before the idea became a ritual.

After moving back to the mainland he said: “My life hasn’t changed much – I never bothered people when I lived in the bothy, and they didn’t bother me, and I’m not really that interested in what else is going on outside.”

Despite his spots he claimed to have no natural affinity with leopard animals – and shunned any spiritual-related suggestions.

  1. I am sure this piece of writing has touched all the internet viewers, its really
    really good article on building up new webpage.

    on the head. The issue is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something regarding this.

  3. How can a man live like an animal just to gain fame? This is strange. He looks scary.

  4. He looks really weird!
