In a move that probably everyone saw coming, Carl McCoid, the man who has over two dozen Miley Cyrus tattoos adorned on his body, says he now regrets going under the needle for the “We Can’t Stop” singer.
McCoid, a father-of-three who owns an ironing business in England, vows to have all some of his “dedication” portraits removed after finding out that Cyrus allegedly called them “creepy” and “ugly” in an interview.
“I got my first tattoo of Miley after I was divorced in 2010, but it got to the point where it was getting obsessive,” McCoid, 42, said on a recent episode of a U.K. TV show about tattoo disasters.
“I’m only regretting them now. I never thought about it too much, but they have had a psychological affect on me,” he continued. “Then she mentioned they were creepy in an interview. It made me realize I didn’t like them.”
According to McCoid, who spent over $4,000 on his tattoos, Cyrus told an interviewer, “There’s a dude that holds a record of the most pictures of my face, he has like 18 pictures of my face and they’re really ugly.”
He now plans to laser off some of the bigger designs in hopes that it’ll help him find a girlfriend.
Some of McCoid’s tattoo of the 22-year-old songstress include several face portraits, the words “Miley: The Movement. A Strategic Hot Mess,” her personal signature, and names of her albums and songs including Bangerz, Can’t Be Tamed, and “Liberty Walk,” and “Obsessed.” (Which, in a sense, is kind of fitting given the circumstances.)
“I’m a little nervous about it,” McCoid said of the procedure. “I just let everything out. It’s going to focus on how I felt when Miley said she didn’t like the tattoos. It’s going to be emotional.”
