Woman Tattoos Entire Body After Divorcing Husband
DailyMail - A mother-of-two has celebrated her divorce by getting a full-body tattoo – from her new boyfriend. Jacqui Moore, 41, has had 85 per cent of her flesh inked with a continuous black and grey ‘full body-suit’ tattoo, a process which has taken eight years. Just her left armpit, half her right leg and most of her face has been left uncovered. But she hopes to complete the tattoo by getting the final 15 per cent of her body daubed next Spring. Jacqui, a gardener at a private school in Oxford, fell for tattooist Andreas Moore, nicknamed ‘Curly’, 45, after divorcing from her husband Martin in March 2003 after a seven-year marriage. She said: ‘I went to get a new tattoo to symbolise my freedom and the new chapter in my life. When I got to the parlour I met Curly and we fell in love and he has been tattooing me since.
So Jacqui’s ex-husband must have done something extremely fucked up in order for her to do this to herself, right? I don’t think I’ve ever heard of someone going to these extremes after a break-up. Usually, you hit the gym, buy some new clothes, spend a little time on yourself and get back out there and try again. Not Jacqui. She walks into a tattoo parlor on a quest for symbolic freedom, falls in love with a dude and gets 85% of her body inked up by him. That’s pretty hardcore. I’m all for tattoos, I think they’re awesome. Absolutely one of the best ways to express yourself in my opinion. But this seems forced to me. It’s like she fell in love with the tattoo artist and just kept going to him to get tattooed like that was the only thing she knew she could do to get his attention. Now she’s littered head to toe in some pretty out there tattoos, and she’s only 41. I’d really, really, really, like to know what her ex-husband did to her. No way he isn’t directly responsible for this type of craziness in her head.
