Disney Fanatic Hurts For His Hobby

BETHLEHEM, Pa. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One man loves Disney and he’s not afraid to show it – all over his body.

Magician George C. Reiger Jr. has a painful, permanent obsession with Disney, and it’s evident by the 2,025 Disney- themed tattoos he has covering nearly his entire body.

Reiger got his first Disney tattoo – of Mickey Mouse in his Fantasia costume – in 1971 at age 18, and continues to get inked every week with a fresh tat of characters like Ariel, Belle, and Goofy.

Not only does Reiger get animated characters permanently placed on his body, but Disney stars like Johnny Depp, Miley Cyrus, Amy Adams, and Ellen DeGeneres as well.

He even gets portraits of people who work on Disney amusement park stage shows tattooed on himself.

Reiger notes, “There’s not really any space left.”

Though he gets inked regularly, Reiger says getting tattooed “hurts now more than ever.”

Reiger’s Disney devotion isn’t just limited to his body. He owns a 40,000 piece Disney collection, which includes furniture and theme park rides, turning his home into a Disney wonderland.
