Man gets skull tattooed on face...
LONDON: A tattoo fanatic has taken his penchant for ink one step further by having his entire face covered in a skull design.
'Mad Dog' Deon, 27, loves his new tat, however, his girlfriend Catherine was less than impressed with her other half's new look.
He showed off the artwork, which is his 37th tattoo, during an appearance on the Jeremy Kyle Show, in an episode titled How Could My Boyfriend Destroy His Own Face?, reports The Sun.
Catherine told Jezza that she thought Deon was joking when he first suggested the extreme tattoo and the talk show host admitted that he too was puzzled why anyone would want to do such a thing.
'I'm slightly struggling as to why anyone would have a skull tattooed on their face,' Kyle said.
However, Mad Dog was unrepentant, saying: 'I don't care what I look like. I am who I am, if people don't like me for who I am, they can do one.
'What's wrong with it? I'm still the same person inside.'
Luckily, Catherine won't have to put up with the gruesome tattoo for much longer, as Deon failed a lie detector test when asked if he had slept with someone else and she promptly ditched him.
New Zealand-born Lucky Diamond Rich holds the World Record for the most tattoos and is 100 per cent covered in black ink, including his eyelids and in between his toes.
Bungling burglars lose money

KANSAS: Two men attempted to rob a Kansas City, Missouri, gun store Thursday and ended up leaving with less money than they had when they came in, the Kansas City Star reported.
One of the would-be robbers entered the store and asked to buy a box of ammunition.
When the 65-year-old clerk, who wore a shoulder holster and a handgun in plain view, told the man it would be about $50, the man said he needed to get more money and left.
The man returned around 5pm with another man and tried to pay with two $20 bills. When the clerk said he was $10 short, the customer pulled a handgun from his waistband and demanded that the clerk hand over the money in the cash register.
The clerk was able to tell that the man's gun was not loaded and pulled his own gun from his shoulder holster.
"His eyes got as big as two dinner plates," said the clerk, who was not named.
"Before I got mine pointed at him, he ran to the door at, like, 95mph. I'm surprised he didn't bust the glass out of the door."
The fleeing robbers left the $40 behind.
Kate Middleton and Prince William invite old flames to wedding
BRITAIN: Two of Prince William's former girlfriends and an ex-boyfriend of Kate Middleton were among the 1900 guests responding at the weekend to invitations to the royal wedding.
William's past flames Jecca Craig and Olivia Hunt are expected to join his bride's former beau Rupert Finch at the April 29 ceremony at Westminster Abbey, as the makeup of the vast congregation becomes more apparent.
Soccer star David Beckham, who worked with the prince on England's failed World Cup bid, and his wife Victoria will be among the few celebrities in attendance, royal aides said.
The audience will include foreign leaders, church officials, diplomats, royals from across the world and the couple's friends and family.
US President Barack Obama was not invited because the wedding is not a state event, though the President and First Lady will head to the UK on their first official state visit in May.
However, angry Prince William has snubbed England's World Cup hate figure Sepp Blatter - by leaving him off his wedding guest list.
The Swiss president of world football body Fifa was expected to get an invitation to Westminster Abbey on April 29 because of close ties to Wills.
But Fifa's choice of Russia as 2018 tournament hosts bitterly disappointed the Prince, who had lobbied hard for England to win the honour.
