Hunt for fry-up tattoo volunteer
Blane Dickinson
Blane Dickinson hopes the fry-up idea will go to someone's head
If you have ever fancied having a full fry-up breakfast tattooed on your head, Blane Dickinson could make your unlikely dream come true.

The tattoo artist is searching for someone willing to turn themselves into a live exhibition of the classic bacon and eggs way to start the day.

Mr Dickinson, from Penmaenmawr, Conwy, wants to take his model around UK tattoo competitions.

It would include a knife and fork behind each ear.

The traditional breakfast has fallen in popularity in recent years behind the less fattening Continental alternative.

It may well be a cholesterol-packed meat-lover's dream - and perhaps a health nutritionist's nightmare - but it clearly still has its fans.

Mr Dickinson remains willing, however, to accept variations on the theme.

The full fry-up: as tempting on the head as on the plate?

That could mean additions such as black pudding - or even meat-free options for vegetarians would be considered.

But he will insist that the tattoo would have to be on someone's head to gain the full effect.

"It's such a striking and recognisable dish, but I will gladly make changes to suit any taste or background."

So far, however, he has been unable to convince his friends to volunteer.
