An Eastenders fan got a huge tattoo of Kat Slater and sent a photo of it to Jessie Wallace on Twitter
If you thought dodgy tattoos peaked at the Harry Styles face tattoo, then take a look at the following man, who got an actual picture of Kat Slater from Eastenders complete with the words 'total sl*g' inked on his leg.
The tattoo, set against the backdrop of the man's hairy knee, is now circulating on Twitter - and has even caught the attention of Kat Slater actress Jessie Wallace herself.
A woman tweeted her a photo of the tattoo alongside the post: "Please appreciate this tattoo of Kat I just saw on Instagram please and thank you."
And Jessie, 47, replied: "Mmmmm. I don't know what to say. I'm speechless."
The tattoo is complete with Kat's blue eyeshadow, leopard-print coat and hoop earrings - and the 'total sl*g' is in reference to when Kat famously told Alfie Moon: "I didn't just become a bit of a sl*g. I became a total sl*g."
Mmmmm. I don’t know what to say. I’m speechless 😳 https://t.co/oEmhRGm417— Jessie Wallace (@JessieWallaceUK) April 8, 2019
The picture of the inking was originally posted by artist Lucy Blue, who claimed that is belongs to a man named Stephen. It is said to have been done in Islington.
Jessie first joined Eastenders as Kat in 2000, and became one of the show's most iconic characters before her departure in 2005. She then frequently returned to the soap, and rejoined again last December.
