Tattooed mum-of-7 says she’s getting inked up to 80 despite ‘looking fun’

Melissa Sloan, 45, got her first design at 20 and now has love hearts and a St George flag on her face – she loves getting inked so much she says she won’t stop

A mother of seven, who is covered from head to toe in tattoos and has the Kray twins tattooed on her leg, says she’ll keep getting more and more until she’s 80 despite people staring at her on the street.

Defiant Melissa Sloan, 45, got her first design at 20 and now has love hearts and a St. George flag on her face.

But there’s room on her back for more and she says she won’t hurt and won’t stop.

Melissa from Wales told BirminghamLive : “”People stare at me no matter where I go.

“There’s always drama. It doesn’t matter whether it’s in the supermarket or wherever, people look at me.”

On people’s reaction to her ink, she added, “Some are really nice and flattering about my tattoos. But others ask why I have so many, or look at me and wonder why I would do it to myself.

“I went to a fair the other day and it was a challenge. A lot of people were staring at me like I was some kind of celebrity superstar.”

But Melissa refuses to acknowledge the critics. All she cares about is that she and her kids like her.

“I have seven kids, most of whom are grown now but they think they’re amazing,” added Melissa. “My mom always said to me: ‘You have to be yourself’. I’ll do that.”

After getting her first couples done professionally, Melissa now gets her partner tattoos at home, sometimes twice a week. But his collection pales in comparison, with “only a few on his arm.”

Melissa’s favorite body art on her leg features East End gangsters Reggie and Ronnie Kray.

When asked if she still had room, Melissa said, “Not on my face. But there’s still a lot of room on my back.

“I just love my tattoos, I’m proud of them. I’ll have them until I’m 80.

“I’m not hurting anyone, so I’m not going to stop. People can say whatever they want, but at the end of the day, it’s about being yourself.”
