This Fella Loves IKEA So Much He's Had A Tattoo Done
I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with IKEA. I hate the queues and the way you need to walk around the whole shop just to pick up a bedside table. But at the same time, I'm a cheapskate and you can't argue with the prices. And let's not forget about the meatballs.
Thirty-year-old Matt Lee, however, bloody loves IKEA. He loves IKEA so much that he's spent about £5,000 ($6,460) on products from the Swedish retailer over the years. In fact, he loves IKEA so much that he's gone and had a four-inch long IKEA pencil tattooed on his wrist.
Honestly, check it out:
You having that?
Matt, who's been a big fan of the meatball-and-flat-pack-furniture megastores since he was a kid, got the tattoo while on a lads' holiday in Ibiza this month. I suppose it's better than some of the Ibiza holiday tattoos you see.
Matt, from Sheffield, said: "I've always been a fan of IKEA.
"I was on holiday with the lads and we all started talking about getting tattoos.

"I'm always banging on about IKEA and one of my mates said I should a tattoo of one of the pencils.
"It was around 7pm at night, I'd had a few drinks but was definitely not drunk. It only took five minutes to finish."
Five minutes! Well, that just fills you with confidence, doesn't it?
He continued: "It's my third tattoo and it's definitely my best one yet. It's just a bit smaller than the life-size version.
"Everyone has laughed their head off, apart from my dad, who said I was an idiot." Dads do tend to know best...
Aside from the fact his dad thinks he's an idiot, there's some good news for Matt, because on 28 September, IKEA is opening a brand-new store just seven miles from where he lives. Fucking hell, this must be like winning the league for this fella.
He suggested the location of the new store means he's likely to 'double, if not treble' the number of trips he makes. It's a hobby, I suppose.
