The pair recently decided to combine their passions to create a collage of different characters' faces on Lindsay's body.


The 38-year-old has had the faces of Hayley Cropper (played by Julie Hesmondhalgh), Rita Sullivan (Barbara Knox), and Norris Cole (Malcolm Hebden) inked on to her body by her husband, who runs a tattoo studio in Calgary.

The tattoos have so far required 15 different sessions, and the couple say they are flying to Manchester for the Tattoo Tea Party at the end of the month, where they plan to complete the artwork.

The Mirror quoted Steve as saying: “We thought it would be a cool idea to do a Coronation Street tattoo before we left and maybe finish it at the show."


“The hard part was narrowing down the characters we wanted to use causing the piece to keep getting larger and larger.

"We have fit as many classic characters as we could but may add some more in the future."

The couple have credited the show with helping keep their marriage together, the Daily Express reported.


Lindsay is quoted by the paper as saying: "We both lead pretty busy lives running a couple of businesses but we always manage to meet up at the end of a busy day to watch Corrie."


Steve added: “We look forward to returning to the Manchester Tea Party in 2016 with a fully complete Coronation Street tattoo with background images and maybe a few new additions.”
