A mum who missed Greggs bakery so much during lockdown has gone viral after getting their logo tattooed on her bum.
Caitlin Jones, 20, from, Paisley, Scotland, was delighted to be reunited with her daily Greggs sausage roll after the UK lockdown was lifted.
The mum-of-one decided to mark the occasion, and her behind, with their logo.
Caitlin had the idea when the tattoo parlours re-opened seven weeks ago and immediately booked herself in for the first available appointment.
Now Caitlin, who is at hairdressing college, says she has no regrets about the artwork despite jibes from online trolls that it’s embarrassing.
She said: ‘I’m obsessed with Greggs and I’ve always loved their sausage rolls.
‘Before lockdown, I used to get one nearly every day so I was absolutely gutted when they closed for lockdown.
‘I was more bothered about Greggs reopening than the pubs so I decided when the tattoo parlours re-opened, I was going to get something to share my love for them.’
Caitlin often gets mixed reactions to the tat but is unbothered about all the comments.
She added: ‘Most people love it and think it’s hilarious. The tattoo artist said to me he was buzzing to do it and other people have said it’s iconic and that I’m a legend.
‘Some people have said it’s embarrassing but I got over that pretty quickly and I’m still in love with it.’
The mum paid £100 for the three-inch-by-one-inch ink work on her left bum cheek which took 90 minutes to complete.
After sharing pictures of her new inking on Facebook, Caitlin racked up nearly 3,000 likes and 1,800 shares.
And she hasn’t ruled out getting another Greggs tattoo in future.
She said: ‘I did have some doubts when I was going to get it and I toyed with the idea of getting a sausage roll on the other side too but I think I’ll wait until the dust settles on this one first.’
Caitlin isn’t even the first person to get the famed bakery’s logo on their body as others have also got the inking.
