Tyler tattoo artist breaks Guinness World Record

The record, 415 tattoos in 24 hours by an individual, but Derek Kastning of Rat-A-Tac-Tat Tattoos in Tyler smashed that record Sunday by almost doubling it.

One star at a time, Derek broke the world record Sunday afternoon with 726 tattoos, and it was all for a good cause.  At $20 dollars a tattoo, all the proceeds from Derek's 24 hour event will benefit the Humane Society of East Texas.

"Our original goal was like 450, or 500 and at midnight we realized we could cream that, so we started shooting for like a thousand, or 800, and we were pretty close to 800, so I'm happy," said Kastning.  The former world record holder is from Dallas.  After getting some rest of course, Derek says he'll be back open for business on Tuesday.
