Body-art masterpiece replicates the Angling Times cover!

Fanatical carp angler Simon Lightfoot proved his love for fishing is more than skin deep by having this incredible portrait tattooed on his back – the same amazing artwork that adorned our front cover on on January 31

Simon decided to email us to shed light on his incredible body-art. He said: “The tattoo has taken roughly 15 to 16 hours to do so far and there are still a few more sittings to go! “My inspiration behind it is my love for all things carp fishing – it’s been a huge passion of mine for many years.”

It turns out Simon wasn’t the only one to be inspired by the image – Derby carp angler Danny Parker also sports it tattooed on his arm!
