There's a long tradition of fans getting their idols etched into their flesh, but Top Gear presenter James May hasn't until now featured heavily on the list of hero-worship tattoos. Cue this YouTube vid (some NSFW language), flagged up recently to astounded PistonHeads forum members: Initially, we thought the whole thing was …
It is a good tattoo, a good likeness but he's obviously an obsessed loony!
Soon appearing on http://ugliesttattoos.failblog.org
"couple of places", "appropriate", tattoo of Clarkson...
I see what you did there, and I LOL'd.
as Mr May himself would say
That would have to be a smaller portrait shurely.
Oh I see...
News just in
Man gets tattoo and to pay for it, gets some media coverage!
Ok he won't make anything from appearing on the reg, but it won't be long until certain news papers come to cover this crazyness. He'll prob get on the show too, i'm sure Jezza will love to laugh at him.
And what if Mr May gets caught doing something reprehensible?
(AFAIK Mr May isn't up to anything reprehensible - Code Monkey lawyers)
I like James May human, but then I also like Audrey Hepburn...
So which is better?....
He says he had to have it done on his leg as it was the only place it would fit? Fiddlesticks! If he had balls and likes Mr May that much, he'd have had it done on his face. I can say with absolute assurance the human face is exactly the same size as the human face.
Looks to me like James enjoying a mild stroke with an aggressive tumour near his Adam's Apple.
As I wonder...
Why did the guy pick "Captain Slow" as the presenter to embellish on his body. Makes little sense. Of course, I don't see much sense in tattoos any way. They only make a growth industry for removal in later life.
I feel sorry for the bloke
Clearly the poor bloke has issues - Look into his eyes.
As with so many people who adopt these extreme exteriors, it's thoroughly fake. What sums it up the most for me is the fake rock star dude laugh at the end where he says he doesn't give a shit about making noise - immediately after whispering his way through a 3-minute video in case his wife (who, much like Columbo, we never actually see on screen) comes down to shout "Malcolm! You're a very naughty boy. Now go to bed!"
The same goes for body builders. I worked with one once, who loved to project the hard man image. If he got a splinter in this finger, he'd run for the first aid kit and start asking if he should maybe go to hospital and get a tetanus injection. He once slightly knocked his foot and behaved as though he'd just been impaled by Genghis Khan. And as for the toddler hissy fit when his glasses were accidentally broken...
As your grandmother used to tell you, it's the quiet ones you need to watch.
Amazing he could have Clarkson on the other leg and still have space somewhere between to put Hammond...... :-)
methinks capt Slow tat / third leg interface is way too suggestive for some...
My Clarkson tattoo straddles my backside. An eye on each cheek meant there was no need to draw the mouth. Or the double chin.
