Here’s yet another reason you should think carefully before getting that tattoo. From the Daily Mail:

After 15 happy years with his wife, Alan Jenkins decided it was time for the ultimate expression of love.

So, determined to prove his devotion, he had a lifesize image of her face – along with those of their two daughters – tattooed on his back.

The painful procedure took 20 hours and cost £870.

Unfortunately for the besotted Alan, it also backfired on a monumental scale after Lisa, 36, absconded with a 25-year-old Latvian hunk she had met at work.

Before and after. Assuming the story is true, how’d they ever get these people to pose for these shots?

What is it about getting your lover’s name tattooed on yourself that leads to a breakup? The more superstitious might say that getting such a tattoo activates Murphy’s Law; I’m more inclined to say that it’s both a warning sign and an expensive (and permanent) act of denial.

If you think that Alan Jenkins has learned his lesson, you would be wrong:

He could be forgiven for wanting his wife off his back for good, but despite his heartache, he has no plans to have to tattoo removed.

“Lisa may have left me but she’ll be on my back forever thanks to the tattoo,” he said.

“But I’ve still got plenty of room on my chest if I get hooked up again.”

Wow, imagining having your ex-wife on your back, constantly, for the rest of your life. That would suck.

Oh, wait. You meant the tattoo. Got it.

So they got them all to pose together, and the only one who looks perplexed by this is the Latvian hunk.

“What the hell have I gotten myself into?”
