AN obsessed fan with 29 tattoos of pop star Miley Cyrus has promised to have them removed after the star herself called them “creepy” and “ugly”.
Carl McCoid, 42, from Bridlington, had his first tattoo in 2010 but never thought it would lead to a full-blown addiction of his body being plastered with her face.
Since then he has covered his body with more and more “dedication” portraits of his idol plus her lyrics and her initials - spending nearly £3,000k in the process.
The ironing business owner even went as far as naming one of his daughters after the controversial superstar.
But the father-of-three said he had a sudden change of heart when Ms Cyrus - whose fan base is largely comprised of teenage girls - said his tattoos were ‘ugly” and “creepy” during several interviews.
Mr McCoid said: “I got my first tattoo of Miley after I was divorced in 2010, but it got to the point where it was getting obsessive.
“Right now I have 29 tattoos done and have spent £2,800. I never thought I would regret it.”
Ms Cyrus told an American interviewer: “There’s a dude that holds a record of the most pictures of my face, he has like 18 pictures of my face and they’re really ugly.”
The star also blocked Mr McCoid on Twitter.
Mr McCoid said he had made the decision to have a selection of tattoos removed - in the hope that will help him find a girlfriend.
“I’m only regretting them now,” he added, “I never thought about it too much, but they have had a psychological affect on me.
“Then she mentioned they were creepy in an interview. It made me realise I didn’t like them.”
He plans to have three of his portrait tattoos laser-removed, an expensive ordeal which could last years and cost far more than the original tattoos.
