What started off as a small tattoo for a Twilight fan turned into a full back tattoo of the main cast of the movie.
Cathy Ward, 49, is such a mega fan of the Twilight Saga series of books and movies that she wanted something a bit more special… her entire back covered in artwork from the vampire films.
The supermarket worker, from Reading, braved 22 hours in the tattoo artist’s chair after months saving £2,000 to put permanent reminders of stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner on her skin. She was desperate to get almost the whole cast on her back because she claims they helped her lose weight.
Despite working in the cake department, she ditched calorie-laden foods in favor of getting stuck into the popular books and movies, and dropped 14 dress sizes in just 6 months. (from size 24 to 10)
Mrs Ward said:
A friend of mine got me the first film on DVD because I was feeling low.
Once I started I just couldn’t stop myself. I had to go out and buy all the books and films. I got hooked. It became my way of rewarding myself. I wanted a permanent reminder of the amazing series so I got a small tattoo and that turned into what I have got now.
She plans to have more Twilight tattoos
Cathy Ward plans to save £2,000 more to spend another 12 hours under the needle as she eclipses her whole torso with the gothic tribute.
There are still a few bits to do. I am going to get my arms done before my 50th birthday in summer. I love Robert Pattinson. I want to tone up so I can get his character Edward Cullen on my stomach. The way I look at it I could be spending the money on going out drinking and eating but instead I’m spending it on something I am really passionate about.
