Charlotte Guttenberg and Chuck met at a tattoo parlour and this eventually blossomed into a great romance due to their love for body art and each other.
Charlotte Guttenberg entered a tattoo parlour for the first time aged 56 to get her first ever tattoo Her husband had passed away after a long illness in 2001 and she eventually decided to do it. She said: "To see someone pass away the way my husband did was too much heartache, and I decided that love was no longer for me. It was a few years before I plucked up the courage do something entirely for myself, and that was getting my first tattoo."
It was there she met Chuck, 71, who was planning on adding more tattoos on his body. She continued: "We exchanged numbers, but because of the grief of losing my late husband, I’d told Chuck I was involved with someone. But as soon as I got home, I was berating myself. I said, 'You are such a fool! That guy was fantastic.'"
"I kept arranging to meet Chuck, but then my mother would find some way to meddle. This happened a few times, with me cancelling at the last minute. I knew I had to find a way to make it up to him, so I made him a hamper full of cookies and sweets and gave it to our tattoo artist, Lisa, who was having a Christmas party."
11 years after and Chuck and Charlotte love is still going strong. They now hold the Guinness World Record for the most tattooed female and male OAPs on earth. Their story shows no matter how weird the world sees you as, someone will love and adore all your weirdness.
