"I'm Cornish born and bred, and wherever I am I will always be reminded now that Cornwall is my home," Laity, a carpenter from Illogan, Cornwall, told SWNS news agency.

"It's something different to a tribal design and I have been thinking about having this as a tattoo for two years."

Laity said his family were initially against the idea, but have since warmed to it. "They've totally changed their minds on it now," he said. "I think they are proud of it."

We take a closer look at some of Laity's tattoos of Cornish attractions below – see how well they match to the real thing with our Slidey Thing.
