The plumber and his mate Adam Lewis, 29, both got the £9 inkings as part of their 'Mexican' themed fancy dress night out.

And while Adam's faded in a few days, Arran's face immediately started to tingle before his face swelled up and he was left with puss dripping from the inking. Find out more in the video above.
