Carly Paget, 20, Welling

Why this design?

It was in memory of my friend Michael. It represents the doves we released at his funeral, and the feather is one that fell off of one of these doves, that we keep on his pillow.

How much did it cost?


Did it hurt? What did it feel like?

I thought I was going to be sick. The pain was ridiculous.

What did your friends think?

They like it because it has a meaning.

Have you got any more?

Nope, this is my first but probably not my last.

Carly’s tattoo was done by Pete at Demon Inkorporation in Bellegrove Road, Welling.

Carly is running the London Marathon in memory of Michael and raising money for ChYps children's hospice. Visit her sponsorship page here.
