A man admits he has regrets about his decision to get a tattoo while drunk at his brother’s bachelor party getaway.
Steven Laverty, who has a one-year-old kid, went away with a bunch of guys to Spain and came home with the phrase ‘what about ye’ tattooed across his eyelids.
The phrase is a common way of asking ‘how are you?’ in Northern Ireland, where Steven lives.
‘It was all a bit of a blur. Obviously I regret it now but at the time I clearly thought it was a good idea.’ he said of the tattoos, reports news.com.au.
‘I haven’t been back to work yet but apparently it’s the talk of the place.’
Despite his cousin trying to talk him out of it, Steven says he disappeared to get the tattoo done while the other revellers were at the beach.
‘We’d been in the bar all afternoon, I can’t remember if it was Sunday or Monday, but they all went for a walk down to the beach and I just ducked out.
‘When everyone saw it they just laughed their heads off at me.’
He says he’s worried that he won’t be able to get dates now, but optimistically says: ‘There’s bound to be someone who likes them.’
