Coca-Cola Tattoo

A word of warning to all thinking if getting inked: Make sure you know EXACTLY what you are putting on your body

Tatt’s ink-redibly unfunny


PROUD Vince Mattingley showed off his Chinese writing tattoo spelling his name for 26 years – until someone pointed out if actually spelt COCA-COLA.


Soft drink ... the words on Vince's chest

Soft drink … the words
on Vince’s chest


Vince, 44, had the body art done after asking staff at his favourite Oriental restaurant to write his name in Chinese symbols.

But a cheeky waiter drew the Coke words – and Vince had it etched on his chest.

Vince – who now works as a tattoo artist – never had anINK-ling he was a walking advert for more than a quarter of a century.

It was only when he travelled to Thailand this year that a barman asked him why he had Coca-Cola written on his chest.


Vince, of Watford, said: “I thought it was a joke then I found out that’s what it said. The restaurant staff must have had a good laugh about it.”


He is now getting another Oriental tattoo to cover up the name of his favourite soft drink, left. He added: “I’m going to go with something Japanese this time.”
