Guinness World Records

This is sure to be the talk of Springfield.

A New Zealand man's 41 tattoos of Homer Simpson have set a new world record.

Lee Weir's tattoos climb the entire length of his left arm and "represent Bart’s dad in various states, including Homer as a jack-in-the box, the Grim Reaper, in an elephant suit, as the Hulk, and even Homer as a donut," according to Guinness World Records.

According to the Daily Mirror, the 27-year-old decided to get the tattoos partly because his father wouldn't let him watch "The Simpsons" as a child.

Weir told Guinness he saved money for the tattoos by abstaining from drinking for a year.
