Brockworth student's regret at 'Barry is a T***' tattoo

  • The infamous Barry tattoo

Comments (7)

GETTING a tattoo when you're drunk is not usually a good idea.

And Brockworth student Stefan Owen knows this only too well - he just wishes he knew someone called Barry.

Heavily under the influence in party resort Magaluf, he woke the next day with the words 'Barry is a t***' tattooed on his arm. He has no recollection of the tattoo being inked on and knows no-one called Barry.

Appearing on Channel 4's Bodyshockers:My Tattoo Hell programme this week, Stefan, 19, said: "It's just the worst thing I've ever done in my life.

"I have no idea who Barry is and it's flipping irritating! It just needs to go.

"It was my first holiday with just friends and no parents around at all, and lots of it was alcohol based.

"We would wake up and go for breakfast and, nine times out of 10, there would be a shot of tequila with it.

"I woke up and my initial thought was 'who the hell is Barry?'. "I had no idea that I had the tattoo, thinking it was just a bit of pen.

"Turns out it wasn't and I ended up with a really dodgy tattoo."

    Lay off him all he did was have a tattoo whilst he was drunk, i'm sure we have all done worse when we were younger, he hasn't hurt anyone, given grief to anyone, he has just been a typical teenage young lad. (without the violence)

    Of course joner63 previous generations haven't done stupid things after too much drink. Still a dopey thing to fall for tho, but funny nonetheless.

    He should maybe change his name to Barry, that way the tattoo would be relevant.....
