A wife was left ‘horrified’ after discovering her husband had a picture of her snoring face tattooed on his thigh.
James McGraw, 40, a window cleaner from Portsmouth, admitted he got the unflattering inking as payback after his partner Kelly, 37, gave him a dodgy haircut.
The couple regularly play pranks on each other, but Kelly said James ‘crossed a line’ with his most recent stunt.
Father-of-five James shared a photo of his tattoo – based on a photograph he took of Kelly sleeping with her mouth open on what appears to be a plane – on Facebook earlier this month.
He captioned the pictures: ‘Don’t know what her problem is… everyone else seems to like it.’
The post notched up almost 800 reactions and 400 comments, with many finding the prank hilarious, sharing crying laughing face emojis.
One person clearly sympathised with Kelly, writing: ‘I would kill you,’ while another asked: ‘Anyone know if James is still alive?’
Replying to a comment, James remarked that the tattoo was his ‘finest work yet’, adding: ‘I seriously can’t stop laughing every time Kelly walks by.’
Speaking to The Sun, James admitted he and his wife have been playing pranks on each other for 24 years.
‘I’m one up at the moment — but I’m also scared because I don’t know what she’s now planning,’ he said.
Kelly remarked: ‘There’s a line and he’s crossed it big time. We’re just a normal family but our banter’s got out of hand.
‘It’s still really raw. We do mess about anyway but this is on another level.’
She added that she was ‘horrified‘ and couldn’t believe what he’d done, admitting she hates the original photo.
Thankfully she appears to have seen the funny side, as she said she can’t look at it without laughing.
Kelly warned James to ‘watch his back’, and revealed she was fuming about the fact he added ‘more chins’ to the image of her asleep.
‘I’ll think of something to get him back, but it’s going to have to be really, really bad to top that,’ she said.
