Fried-Chicken Loving Woman Gets KFC Tattooed On Her Lip

Sure, you may claim to love KFC but do you love it enough to go ahead and get a permanent inking of it tattooed on your lip? Nope? Didn't think so.

Super-fan Tabatha Andrade, from Melbourne, Australia, did just that, though, and now she's hopeful that the fast-food giants might give her some freebies for her dedication. I mean, surely this is worth a free Zinger Tower burger...

Twenty-year-old Tabatha initially discussed the idea of getting a tattoo with her folks, who were on-board with her getting inked as long as she opted for something 'deeply meaningful and important'.

So last November, she did just that, explaining her decision Tabatha said: "I told my parents I wanted to get a tattoo, and they said I could get inked with something that was important to me.

"I was on holidays up in Queensland when the urge just suddenly came to me, and I decided to finally do it.

"KFC is my favourite fast food. I go these at least once a week, if not more. It does mean a lot to me, so it seemed fitting to get this tattoo. I really love chicken. All my friends call me the chicken connoisseur. I even named my dog 'nugget', because I'm obsessed with chicken nuggets."

Tabatha, who works in banking, has another tattoo - the word 'family' - and says the idea for a lip tattoo came from Kendall Jenner.

She says that the inner-lip tat 'did not hurt at all', but I guess we'll have to take her word for that.

Now, despite what you may think, Tabatha says she is very happy with her tattoo. "I have absolutely no regrets," she added. "It's my favourite tattoo."

"I got the idea of doing it on the lip from Kendall Jenner. It seems to be popular these days, so I just thought why not. I showed my parents when I came home, and they thought it was fake. But they're okay with it now.

"The tattoo artist laughed so hard when I told him what I wanted. "It didn't hurt at all. It only took about two minutes.


"I love the shock I get from people when I pull down my lip and show them. It's always so funny.

"It would be awesome if they gave me free KFC because of it. Let's see what happens."

Your move, Colonel.
