A model says she's covered around 70 percent of her body in tattoos to avoid comparisons to Megan Fox.
Aurore Pariente, who lives in Avignon in the south of France, has more than 1.4 million followers on Instagram where she regularly shows off her impressive ink.
Aurore, who is a model and a makeup artist, said she made the decision to get tattoos after people started to compare her to the Jennifer's Body actress. Personally, I can think of worse things than being compared to Fox, but each to their own.
The model says she wants to be 'unique' working within the industry and that she didn't like to be associated with someone else so decided to make herself stand out.
It seems she took this idea to the extreme and now sports colourful ink all over her legs, arms and torso, which she says makes her feel 'freer'.
Aurore says she doesn't actually know how many tattoos she has as she reckons they're all connected to make one overall piece of art.
She said: "At the beginning of my career, I was always told that I looked a lot like Megan Fox, but I didn't like that.
"So, I started tattooing myself to feel unique.
"I can't say the number of tattoos I have because they are all connected, each piece of drawing connects to another.
"I did think about removing a tattoo in the beginning, but now I feel freer with them, I'm used to it."
In a post on her website, Aurore says she has visited various artists to get her work done.
She wrote: "I have many tattoo artists on my body. I choose them for their talent. There is little meaning or inspiration.
"For instance, when I have finished all my projects, I will have enough. I don't want to hide all my body. I think some parts need to stay empty."
The model spent just two years getting herself covered in tattoos. With around 70 percent of her body covered in ink, Aurore says she won't be getting any more done.
She explained: "The only parts I don't have a tattoo on my body are on my neck, butt and breasts.
"I want to make my body beautiful, not hide it completely."
