Aston Gets Peterborough Tattoo

JLS singer Aston Merrygold has got a tattoo featuring Peterborough Cathedral.

According to Aston, who is from Peterborough, the picture of the 900 year old building [pictured - right] is a tribute to his hometown.

Aston attended Peterborough's Jack Hunt school before being catapulted into the limelight in The X Factor in 2008.

His dad Oz, who still lives with Aston's mum in Peterborough, said: "He has got a lot of tattoos, and me and his mum are very happy he got one about Peterborough.

He is very proud to be from Peterborough. 

We are glad he has kept in touch with his friends here."

Aston's dad Oz talks to Heart's Tom Horn.

Managers at Peterborough Cathedral have revealed their delight at the exposure for the building.

Spokeswoman Sarah McGhie said: "His love for our city is well-known and this beautiful visual statement is obviously very much in keeping with how he projects himself and demonstrates strong pride in where he grew up.

Being avid Twitter users, we were astounded to see the Tweet from Aston's fans which clearly shows a Peterborough Cathedral tattoo.

To our knowledge this tattoo is very much one of a kind - we have never come across this expression of passion in our glorious cathedral before."
