Man has pizza tattooed on head

The pizza tattoo

A man has had a slice of ham and pineapple pizza tattooed on his head.

The slice was inked right across the back of Colin Helsby's head, with the crust behind one ear and the tip behind the other.

The 45-year-old had the tattoo to raise cash for a cystic fibrosis charity and to celebrate the opening of his new business - a takeaway pizza shop!

Mr Helsby, from Penmaenmawr, north Wales, said he had a bit of a headache but was happy with his new look.

The tattoo took three hours to complete and features three types of ham, chunks of pineapple and long strands of cheese dripping down Mr Helsby's neck.

He said: "I'm really pleased with it, and I'll keep my head shaved at the back for a few weeks to show it off."

Tattooist Blane Dickinson, who tattooed a full English breakfast across the top of a man's head last month, said he liked the result: "It's really colourful, and I'm very proud of it."
