Just when you think the glory of Ireland winning the Six Nations this year was fading, along comes this – an English fan getting a bright green shamrock tattooed on his ass after losing a bet. 


The Irish Post report that an unlucky English rugby fan, Luke Hoyle from Devon, made a bet with Derry woman Anne Tattersal on the RBS Six Nations. If Ireland won, he would get a shamrock tattoo. If England won, she would get an English rose. 

We all know how that played out...

A fundraising page was set up to raise money for North Devon Hospice, with "tickets" available to buy to watch the tattoo torture begin.

"Lukie Hoyle has lost his Six Nations bet against Anne Tattersall and being the good sport that he is has agreed to honour his bet and have a Irish shamrock tattooed on his English arse!"

Watch the full (very painful and very, very funny) ordeal here:

Nearly there...

And done! We can only guess that smack on the shamrock hurt more than the tattoo itself...
