Royally obsessed: Man gets Will and Kate 'tattooed' on teeth

Is there something stuck on your teeth? Oh no, that’s just a tattoo of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

One man has officially won The Windsor Knot’s royal wedding mania title by willingly paying £1,000 to submit to six hours in a dentist’s chair in order to have the famous duo emblazoned on his choppers. (The prize? Ridicule!)

British plumber Barmy Baz Franks, 29, got a dentist to use ultrafine brushes and stencils to paint images of the smiling royals. The temporary ivory art – known as “gnasher tats” – will last roughly three months, depending on how much Barmy Baz Franks brushes. “I’ve done some unusual dental cosmetics in my time, but this was certainly one of the strangest,” said the dentist, Dr. Neil Gerrard, in an interview with Small World News Service.

The patient says he was just doing his part to help celebrate the April 29 nuptials. “I love the royal family and this was my way of lending my support to their big day,” said Franks.

We think we know who would make a good match for the tattooed fan: The royal wedding hunger striker.
