VIDEO: British Mother Of Two Has 80 Percent Of Her Body Covered In Tattoos After Painful Divorce

A British mother of two says she covered 80 percent of her body in tattoos after a painful divorce — but now the ink is interfering with her dating life. In an interview with Barcroft TV posted this week, 49-year-old Amanda Brignall said she “wanted to add a bit of glamour into [her] life” after her husband divorced her when she was 37.

Today, Brignall’s tattoos include a portrait of Marilyn Monroe, a star design on her face, and a “talk to the hand” tattoo inscribed on her palm, which she said she’ll flash to anyone who’s not a fan of her appearance.

Though Brignall said that she loves her tattoos, the men in her Yorkshire, England community don’t seem to feel the same way; she’s only had one date in the last seven years.

“I don’t get chatted up much, I don’t know why,” she said. “I think I intimidate them — unless I’m too freaky from them, I don’t know.”

Brignall’s post-divorce ink may be eye-catching, but this is hardly the first time someone has turned to tattoos in the wake of a bad breakup. In June 2012, Carl McCoid, a 39-year-old British man, showed off nearly $800-worth of Miley Cyrus tattoos that he had inked across his body after his divorce.

    I'm very sure she truly loved her husband
    That can only be the reason why it affected her so bad like this. Probably the first stage of depression.
