Most people might start with something subtle for their first tattoo—especially at the age of 49. Cathy Ward isn’t like most people—or even most fanatical Twilight fans.
No, Cathy’s first tattoo covers her entire back in Twilight characters—and it took 22 hours and $3100 to complete. But she’s not done yet. Plans are in the works to get her entire torso covered with more Twilight imagery.
She was desperate to get almost the whole cast of blood-sucking characters on her back because she claims they helped her lose five stone.
Despite working in the cake department, she ditched calorie-laden foods in favour of getting stuck into the popular books and moviesâ€“ and dropped 14 dress sizes in just six months.
Mrs Ward said: â€˜A friend of mine got me the first film on DVD because I was feeling low.
â€˜Once I started I just couldn’t stop myself. I had to go out and buy all the books and films. I got hooked. It became my way of rewarding myself.
I love Robert Pattinson. I want to tone up so I can get his character Edward Cullen on my stomach.
Hmmm. Maybe it’s just me but replacing unsightly flab with a giant unsightly tattoo seems counterproductive.
