Guy wakes up after bachelor party with hilarious Donald Trump tattoo
Tattoos are an important decision. After all, they're going to be permanently on your skin, unless you find an expensive and painful option to remove it. So if you're dead set on getting one, you better be certain that it's a design you'll be happy to wake up to each and every day. However, for some people it's a spur of the moment decision that they wish they could take back.
Drunken tattoos are a thing, unfortunately, leading to many people waking up with terrible hangovers and a lot of embarrassment over their new ink. A bachelor party is pretty much the perfect place for this to happen - with the drunken shenanigans of a group of men celebrating their friend's last days as a single man tend to get a little wild.
Lewys Shepherd, from Rhondda in South Wales, woke up the morning after a joint rugby tour and bachelor party with a major regret. Not only had he made the decision to get a tattoo in a seriously inebriated state the night before, but the image he had chosen was current President of the United States, Donald Trump.
He got the image of Trump plastered on his leg, showing Agent Orange mid-speech, taken from a particularly unflattering photo that has made the internet rounds over the last few years. Lewys isn't exactly Trump's biggest fan, and he didn't want to keep the tat - so headed to E4's Tattoo Fixers to see if they could help him out.
"I’ve got a sh*t tattoo that I need gone," he told tattoo artists Paisley Billings, Uzzi Canby, and Steven 'Sketch' Poerter. "I was on a stag do/rugby tour, had a few too many, ended up in a tattoo shop and had a bad tattoo."
"I thought it was a great idea at the time… until I sobered up," he continued, teasing that "it’s a bit of a controversial person". Following the reveal, he hastily said that he wasn't a supporter of Donald Trump in any capacity, which just makes the odd choice of tattoo all the more embarrassing for him.
"I was just drunk, and he’s in the news a lot isn’t he – so, that’s the first person that popped into my head.
"I want to make it clear, I’m not a fan of Donald Trump. For some reason that’s what popped into my head, and as soon as I said it, there was no going back."
Thankfully, the tattoo fixers were able to return Lewys' leg to its former glory. This time, he went with a Native American theme for the design. The new tattoo shows a Native American wearing an elaborate feather head dress - which I imagine many would prefer to his original choice.
At least this tattoo was regulated to his leg - if he'd chosen to get a tattoo across his entire back, like Ben Affleck did recently, he'd be in much more trouble.
