I bet tat’ll get me into night­club free for life

AN EDGE HILL uni­ver­sity stu­dent got a tat­too of an en­try stamp to a pop­u­lar Orm­skirk night­club.

The stu­dent got the £35 tat­too on her wrist after re­port­edly los­ing a bet.

She asked for a black tree in a cir­cle with the word “Alpine” – the name of a pop­u­lar stu­dent venue.

The tat­too artist who did the work said that she ini­tially thought the book­ing was a joke.

Abigail France, who works at Stu­dio Odyssey in Orm­skirk, said she did not ex­pect the cus­tomer to ac­tu­ally come to her ap­point­ment.

But the stu­dent did turn up on Fri­day and said she wanted to go ahead, de­spite staff ini­tially try­ing to talk her out of it.

Ms France said: “She came in on Tues­day very hun­gover, so we couldn’t do it then with al­co­hol in her sys­tem.

“She was after the Alpine stamp on her wrist.

“Ap­par­ently she had lost a bet, and some­one had said to her that if she got it done she would get free en­try for life. She couldn’t re­mem­ber what the bet was.

“We called up Alpine to check it was the right logo, and that she’d get in – they were aware she was get­ting it.

“And ap­par­ently she did get in – and they let her jump the queue.

“She was very happy about get­ting it, and happy with how it looked. Usu­ally if tat­toos are too weird, we just say no.

“It was a unique re­quest – but each to their own, at the end of the day. And she can al­ways get it cov­ered or re­moved if she wants.”
