Some women have all the ingredients, from birth or otherwise, to just become the perfect ladies. But other women are not so lucky. Today, we’re showing you the weirdest, most unusual and extraordinary women out there (courtesy of Tapoos).
1. The woman with Hulk’s hands

— Duangjay Samaksamam (@DuangjaySamaks) January 17, 2017
Her name is Duangjay Samaksamam, and each of her arms weigh 21 pounds. The syndrome is called ‘swollen hands’, and so far there has been no cure. Except cutting them off – a ‘solution’ that this superwoman of course refuses. Poor Duangjay is finding life difficult because she can’t even shampoo her head, brush her teeth or comb her hair on her own.
2. The legendary Lady, Swallower of Swords
Being born in India with a Russian name, Natasha Veruschka is of mixed heritage. Part Russian and part British, she is fluent in many languages, but her unique skill is something else. Natasha is the holder of the world record for – get this – swallowing the most swords in one try. The longest one is 29 inches.
3. The Tattoo Superwoman
She calls herself the Illustrated Lady, but her real name is Julia Gnuse. This extraordinary woman keeps the world record of the most tattooed woman in the world.
4. The lady who nails it
Christine Walton holds the record for the longest fingernails (worldwide). She hasn’t cut her nails in decades, and now they’re 7.34 meters long (that’s 23 feet and 11 inches). She says she can cook, drive and do chores easily, but… How does she scratch herself?
5. Can you lick your nose?

Adrianne Lewis is an ordinary girl… Only seemingly. She has a super-long tongue with which she can lick her own nose pretty efficiently. In fact, it’s so long, she can even touch her eyes with it! CRAZY!
6. Meet the real-life Rapunzel!
The difference being that she’s Chinese. Rapunzel’s real name is actually Xie Qiuping, and she is the world record holder of having the longest hair. The last time she cut her hair when she was 13 years old, back in 1973. Now, her mane is 18 feet and 5 inches long, which is now making it impossible for her to walk on her own – and requires a special helper to carry it behind her.
7. The lady that’s thinner than many sticks
She weighs only 29 kilos, suffering from a rare disease that prevents her body from storing any fat. While she was bullied and made fun of since an early age, Elizabeth Ann “Lizzie” Velásquez is now an author and motivational speaker. Her TED video got a whopping 40 million views!
8. Eyes to die for
Or die from! But Kim Goodman can extend her eyes out, like a frog, for as much as half an inch – or almost one and a half centimeters. “It happened as an accident” she says. She earned her place in the 50th-anniversary edition of the Guinness World Records.
9. The eternal woman
Ms. Emma Martina Luigia Morano is another Guinness World Record holder – but this time, for her age. She is 118 years old, being born on November 29th, 1899 in Italy. She’s outlived her husband and has since been living alone eating the same meal: raw meat, Italian pasta and one cooked, and two raw eggs.
10. The smallest lady in the world
And how about the smallest woman in the world? Well, meet Jyoti Amge from India, who, according to the Guinness World Records is just 23 inches tall, and only 11 pounds in weight. Jyoti is an actress in fact and dreams to make it to Hollywood one day.
11. Theee… most ouch woman in the world.
Her name is Elaine Davidson, and before this, she was a nurse by profession. But, one fine January day back in 1997, she got her first piercing, and just couldn’t stop adding more. She became obsessed – and today she has more than 9800 piercings all over her body. According to the Guinness World Records, that makes her the Most Pierced Woman in the entire world. Wanna meet her in person? Book a trip to Edinburgh, Scotland.
12. The best two ladies in the world
Abigail Loraine Hensel and Brittany Lee Hensel are conjoined twins, and they have to do everything together. They were born in 1990, and they possess separate organs (but only some of them, like lungs, heart and stomach). Brittany is a writer, while Abigail is a mathematical genius. They may share the same body, but they’re very different people.
13. Madam Giraffe
Lyudmila’s mother noticed something was… off, when her daughter turned ten. Lyudmila was much taller than all her other friends, growing on all sides. Her legs, arms and neck were all longer than those of her peers. She was diagnosed with a so-called condition named the Marfan Syndrome, and after a lot of therapy and surgery, she is finally happy.
14. The real-life anime woman
A post shared by Anastasiya Shpagina (@anastasiya_fukkacumi) on
Her real name is Anastasiya Shpagina and is basically the most realistic anime girl you’ll find. She was very good with makeup since she was a child, and since then she’s only pushed the limits. Now, she only weighs about 39 kilos and is only 1.58 meters tall. Maybe watch something else, Anastasiya?
15. The perfect hourglass figure
A post shared by Pixee Fox – The Living Cartoon (@pixeefox) on
Miss Pixie Fox is Swedish, and she’ll blush with pride if you tell her that she looks like a cartoon character. She spent $80,000 trying to achieve the perfect hourglass shape – this meant that she had to remove six of her ribs. That’s… admirable?
