Sean doesn’t have any tattoos but he was fascinated to learn about Tholly’s collection. ‘Pippa and I think Tholly travelled a lot in the Far East as there were great gains to be had out there at this time, and tattoos were for things you achieved at sea. He has a turtle and an anchor on his hand, which meant you’d crossed the equator and sailed over 5,000 nautical miles, and sailed the Caribbean and Indian Oceans where turtles swim.
‘Tholly also has little hearts on his fingers with initials on to symbolise all the loves of his life over the years. I keep the tattoos on at the end of a day
to show my kids; they think it’s very cool!’
