When Zoe Wade meets one of her idols, they always leave a lasting impression on her… in thick black ink.
For, rather than asking them to sign a book, the autograph hunter gets her favourite celebs to sign her body in marker pen. She then heads to the tattooist to make sure the souvenir scribbles are with her for eternity.
Zoe’s arms and back are now covered with her growing collection, which includes Angelina Jolie, Celine Dion, Ronnie Wood and Kylie Minogue. And her 12-hour wait in the rain outside the recent Brit Awards landed her two more – Lionel Richie and U2’s The Edge.
So far no one has turned her down. But Zoe says she has to be choosy about who she lets sign her body.
“It has to be someone who’s an icon. Otherwise I would be covered from head to toe,” the 27-year-old student adds.
Zoe, who has 13 names etched on her skin, admits she can get carried away in her excitement at meeting a big celeb. “I’m quite slim so unless I put on a few stone I’ll soon run out of places to put them all.”
