English breakfast tattoo

As someone who blogs about breakfasts in England, I couldn’t help but note this piece in the Guardian:

A 19-year-old today had a full English breakfast tattooed on his head.

Dayne Gilbey was inked with bacon, eggs, sausages, beans and cutlery during the six-hour session.

Mr Gilbey, from Coventry, answered a plea from the tattoo artist Blane Dickinson, who wanted a human canvas for the iconic dish.

The North Wales-based tattooist etched out the brightly-coloured design, which resembles a smiling face, at his local pub The Albion, in Conwy.

[To the tune of Marvin Gaye, “I Heard It Through The Grapevine,” from the album “The Very Best Of 60’s Gold, vol. 3”.]

  2. OMG that just looks terrible! I don’t really get why anyone would do that…

  3. Do you think he will regret that tattoo in 10 years? I bet a 100 bucks he will 🙂

  4. I wouldn’t be surprised. You gotta think these things through!
