Tatty- oo

Martin Nolan spent seven hours having a prayer tattooed on his back — then showed it off to a pal who spotted TWO spelling mistakes.

Martin, 43 — who paid £200 for the tribute to his mum Breda — was furious to be told strength had been etched as “strenght” and wisdom as “nisdom”.

Caterer Martin, who cannot afford laser treatment to have the blunders corrected, moaned yesterday: “My heart sank. I’m stuck with this for life.”

Tattoo parlour Hippy Heaven — near Martin’s home in Ealing, West London — blamed HIM for approving the outlines of the letters before they were filled in.

Manager Andrew Daynes, 38, said: “We always ask this because some of the international artists might not be able to spell very well. It is the same with dyslexic artists.”

I would never want to put something anywhere on my body that would be their for life. I may grow to hate it, like the sucker will grow to hate his tatoo if he does not already hate the thing

Interesting, I don't suppose Martin knows a guy called Sam who works (or used to) there. I am trying to track him down and never knew his surname? Many thanks. Pete
