Society is a lot more accepting of tattoos these days, letting people express themselves how they want to with their own bodies. But.. well… maybe this particular tattoo might cause regrets one day.
Kourtney Leigh, aged 20, has got her boyfriend’s name tattooed on her face. Or, as her possessive partner puts it, she’s been ‘branded like Heinz Beans’. The word ‘Ryan’ goes above her left eyebrow, while ‘Wibbo’ is on the other side, so nobody else will ever be able to look at her without seeing Ryan’s handiwork.
Her boyfriend Ryan Wibberley, a 23-year-old tattoo artist who goes by the name Wibbo, claims he has persuaded 39 ex-girlfriends to get his name tattooed on them. Most didn’t go for the face, but apparently legs, arms, fingers and backsides instead.
‘I just get p*ssed up and I get my tattoo gun out. It’s a laugh,’ he told the Sun. ‘It’s not taking advantage because they want it done.’ ‘I’ve got Kourtney’s name on my hand, but she’s the only ex whose name I’ve got done. ‘I’ve branded her like Heinz Beans.’ (We’re not sure why he called her an ‘ex’ either. It’s surely not indicative of things to come).
Including the tattoo of Kourtney’s name, Ryan, from Stoke in Staffordshire, has more than 50 tattoos himself. The couple previously appeared on Jeremy Kyle, under the headline ‘Why would I cheat on you? I’ve got your name tattooed on my face!’ They have been together since February, when they met after Ryan left prison for affray, making threats with a bladed article and theft.
Explaining why she got the tattoo, Kourtney said: ‘I do it because he’s paranoid and wants to have me branded. ‘He thinks it’ll put other men off. ‘I don’t really care what people have been saying about me.’
