Lewis Ellis From The Apprentice Gets Tattoo Of Alan Sugar As Al Pacino
Lewis Ellis, the 28-year-old self-proclaimed 'maverick' who was booted out of The Apprentice in the penultimate week, has commemorated his time on the show by getting a tattoo of Lord Alan Sugar... dressed as Al Pacino.
Ellis has been teasing the tat on social media for the past few days, but it would appear the new inking is now complete and ready to see the world.
The 28-year-old marketing manager had tweeted a sneak peek the other day, sharing a photo of the tattoo artist in action and writing: "Remember when I said I'd include LAS in my next tattoo?
"I'll likely regret this one in the morning. Still I always include moments of my life in them."

In a later update, he added: "It looks a lot like him, but I may wait until I get a bit more done to share."
Now Ellis has proudly shared his new artwork, having hinted on Twitter it was all down to a debt.
After seeing the tat, one person tweeted: "Oh my god Lewis you actually did it."
He replied mysteriously: "Bet's a bet."

As well as being a bit of a conversation starter, the tattoo also functions as a bit of a 'screw you' to Lord Alan Sugar, who has openly slated Ellis' body art - and his assertions that such markings 'tell a story'.
Sugar had tweeted: "Lewis your tattoos tell your story. What are you a Kindle?
"You have the right to do what you want to your body. I have the right of an opinion. I say they are horrible.
"When you're 50 on the beach you'll wear a T shirt. You will be an embarrassment to your kids."
Speaking to the Daily Mail about the bizarre ode to his time with Sugar, Ellis said: "I thought adding Lord Sugar would be a great reminder of my time on the show.
"I've always said my tattoos tell my story and now this part of my life is there forever.
"I went to my artist in Bolton and I am really happy with how it looks.
"Lord Sugar had a bit of a dig at when he said 'my tattoos tell a story - what am I a Kindle?'.
"So I wanted the tattoo to tell the story of what happened to me on the show which ultimately of course ended up with me being fired which is why he's holding the gun.
"He also said that my kids wouldn't want to look at my tattoos when I had children. Maybe now they'll be one he will be happy for them to look at!"
