Man teased for big, stupid tattoo of fake, dead gay guy

“When I walked in, one of the lads said, ‘Oi, Paul – heard about Dumbledore?’“There were wisecracks about ‘Watch your backs, lads.’ Someone asked me if I was planning to get a tattoo of Graham Norton. I thought, ‘Why me?’ ”

The huge £500 tattoo shows Dumbledore holding a scroll bearing the names of his Harry Potter mad children – Charlotte, Deanna, Brandon, Tamzin and Paris.

Paul said: “It seemed like a good idea at the time.”

Given that the tattoo took a year to create, one presumably can’t blame the beer. One does wonder, however, what they guy thought he would do ten years from now, when Dumbledore wouldn’t exactly be fresh. One also hopes the dude had some alcohol handy whilst reading the portions of the final book when it looked like D might not turn out to be such a good wizard (of course anyone who thought this idea was a good one probably doesn’t read much). Better to be gay than dark.
