Superfan has Ant (and Dec) in his pants after visit to tattooist

Updated: 

A tattooist who inked Ant and Dec eating spaghetti on a customer's buttocks said the job took two and a half hours per cheek.

Superfan Lee Crane, 28, asked tattoo artist Steve Bell to put the Geordie duo on his posterior for posterity.

Mr Bell, who runs the Clockwork Orange parlour in Norton, Teesside, broke his hand half way through the job so for some months Mr Crane had just Ant on one buttock.

Last week Mr Crane returned to the shop to have Dec inked on the other.

Mr Bell had seen a photo of Ant and Dec recreating the Lady and the Tramp spaghetti-eating scene and suggested it to his client.

The tattooist said: "He is from the Newcastle area and he is a big Ant and Dec fan.

"All in it took five hours, it was two-and-a-half hours per cheek.

"Now it is his ambition to get his tattoo signed by them."
