Cats fan now knows left from right

Cats fan now knows left from right

A die-hard Geelong fan is regretting his decision to get a tattoo celebrating the team's premiership victory while on holiday in Thailand last week.

"Neville" told 3AW he paid about $150 for two tattoos on his upper arms while in Phuket last Thursday.

But his loyal attempt to honour his team backfired when instead of the words "Day Premiers 2007", the tattoo artist instead christened Neville's beloved Cats the "Gay Premiers 2007".

"I couldn't believe it," Neville told 3AW this morning, adding he had consumed 15 cans of beer during the five-hour tattooing process.

To make matters worse, Neville's attempts to communicate his wishes clearly to the tattoo artist were taken a little too literally.

Neville had drawn pictures of the tattoos he wanted on each arm with the instructions, "Right Arm" and "Left Arm" to make the delineation clear.

Now, along with the "Gay Premiers" tattoo on his right arm, he has a permanent reminder - should he ever forget - that it is in fact, his right arm.

On his left arm, along with a fierce looking Cat logo and the words "Night Premiers 2006", Neville now has the words, "Left Arm".

"My son-in-law came in . . . and said, 'You know they've written 'Right Arm?'"

"I said, 'You're joking!"

"I said, 'Well now he's done that he might as well do the left arm as well."

Neville said there was some light at the end of the tunnel, with the tattoo of such poor quality it appeared to already be peeling and was almost indecipherable.

3AW's morning hosts Ross Stevenson and John Burns said they would attempt to get Neville a 2008 Geelong membership for his troubles.
