Royal super fans are getting tattoos to celebrate King Charles' coronation – here are the best ones | The Sun

ROYAL enthusiasts are marking King Charles's coronation with regally themed tattoos.

Tattoo artist Anna Townsend told The Sun how she'd already started inking customers with royal designs ahead of Saturday's coronation.

Anna, 22, who works from a beauty studio in Romford, Essex, has designed a number of royalty-themed tattoos for people to choose from including crowns, king and queen symbols and even a Paddington bear to mark the event.

She said she has had huge interest in the designs and is offering customers 20 percent off the royal tattoos to celebrate the historic day.

Anna told The Sun: "I often create tattoo offers based on a particular theme, for example I have done Halloween and Mother’s Day ones, it’s a fun way to give people ideas and get them thinking.

"I have had quite a lot of interest in my coronation designs, especially the Paddington; I think he’s associated with her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II due to the clip from the Platinum Jubilee.

"This is my first time doing royal-themed tattoo designs as I started my fine line tiny tattoo business last September.

"I like to do these theme days as I’m quite artistic and they’ve always been popular to generate interest.

"I’m sure King Charles would be amused but it also gives people a chance to celebrate the kings and queens in their own lives."

One of her first clients to request a royal tattoo was 59-year-old housewife Yazz, who got a bee wearing a crown on the back of her neck.

“I thought, what better to celebrate the only coronation in my lifetime, with a permanent royal-themed tattoo,"Yazz told The Sun.

"With our new King, being such an avid conservationist, it seems fitting, a beautiful bee wearing a royal crown.”

Anna said as well as the coronation-themed tattoos other popular options at the moment were tattoos symbolizing motherhood and handwritten tattoos.

Location wise she said most people are opt for the wrist, ankle and ribcage.

"Personalised writing is very popular at the moment, for example, someone may send me the last birthday card from a loved one and I can create a stencil from the exact handwriting.

"For Mother’s Day, I created a mummy and baby elephant tattoo which became quite popular too.

"Placement wise, the wrist, above the inner elbow crease, ankle and ribcage are quite nice areas that people like to get tattooed."

Anna's tattoo studio Quill & Ink is at the Mirror Mirror beauty salon in Stapleford Tawney, Essex.
