This Grandmother Has 286 Tattoos

Sheila Jones, 64 years old and a grandmother of 13, only started adding them a few years ago, and still wants more. They include Marmite jars, Mick Jagger's name and cupcakes.

Sheila, from Weston-Super-Mare, got her first tattoo due to a schoolgirl crush.

She told the Western Daily Press: "When I had the first tattoo I thought it would be a cool thing to do. A lot of people were doing homemade ones at the time with Indian ink."

In her late 30s her interest in tattoos re-emerged.

It was when she met her second husband Rob, 49, that her interest peaked. He was a "hobby tattooist".

She was the perfect subject for him to practise on.

She was regularly getting two tattoos a week.

The majority of her body is now covered – apart from her stomach and bottom.

This is her favourite tattoo: the name of her favourite rock star.

She says people's reactions to her tattoos are nearly always positive.
