Britain’s ‘most tattooed mother’ who has over 800 tattoos reveals what she looks without the ink (and her bare face scared her children!)


A woman who claims she’s ‘Britain’s most tattooed mother’ has left people stunned after unveiling what she looks like without her signature inkings.

Melissa Sloan, 46, from Powys, Wales, has amassed over 800 tattoos since she had her first one done over 10 years.

As a result, the mother-of-seven says her two youngest children can’t remember what the self-described ‘tattoo addict’ looks like without any inkings.  

However, Melissa – who has previously said she gets three tattoos a week – recently decided to take a walk down memory lane and temporarily cover her face inkings with foundation.

Melissa shocked her social media followers by showing what her natural features looked like slathered in Max Factor foundation – and joked that her sons and dog were scared by the drastic change in her appearance.

Speaking to the Daily Star, she explained: ‘None of them talked to me that day, the kids weren’t having none of it. It didn’t go down well.

‘They said ‘go back to your craziness mum’, none of them spoke to me. It didn’t go well. It wasn’t the same, it’s like they were looking at a different person, a stranger.

‘When it came off again, they were back to normal – it should have been the other way round.’

Although her youngest children have no qualms with her inked face, Melissa’s said her five other children – who she does not have contact with – are not fans of her tattoos.

However, the mother, who often is dubbed a ‘smurf’ or a ‘freak’ by trolls, was showered with compliments from fans who gushed she was ‘so very beautiful’.

Despite receiving praise for her makeup routine, which saw her marijuana leaves and facial crucifixes camouflaged, Melissa’s says she will never get rid of her inkings.

She added that it was good to ‘swap and change’ every now and again, but she would never get rid of her tattoos entirely.

‘People said I looked beautiful the way I was before – but I like it crazy,’ she said.

Even though many complimented Melissa on her bare faced look, she said she would never get rid of her tattoos because she likes 'crazy' (pictured before she had gotten the majority of her tatoos)

Explaining how she achieved the look, Melissa joked she used ‘cement thick’ Max Factor foundation to camouflage her facial tattoos.

This comes after Melissa admitted that she was struggling to find a driving instructor to give her lessons because of her face tattoos. 

She said one instructor was visibly shaking when she sat in his car and could barely look at her face.

She claimed another couldn’t wait to get her out of his car he was so shocked at the sight of her heavily tattooed face, bright green hair and rap style metal grills on her teeth.

‘All I want is an instructor to give me lessons,’ said Melissa.

‘I live in quite an isolated place and have to rely on my partner Will to get me around. I now have a car and just want lessons so I can take my test.

‘I know they are put off by the way I look, but that is victimisation and should not matter. This is something I have lived with most of my life, but it should not be happening.’

The mother-of-seven admitted that she has lost count on the number of tattoos covering almost every inch of skin of her face.

‘I now have three layers on my face with tattoos over tattoos,’ said Melissa.

‘I know that I am addicted to them, but just can’t stop. I still get them every week or I will get my partner Will to give me a tattoo with our own inking gun.’

The tattoo designs on her face originally consisted of flowers and an England flag, but they are now covered with several crucifixes.
