A British man took a joke so far that it “crossed the line” and left him with a permanent mark.
James McGraw wanted to get even with his wife Kelly for giving him a bad haircut so he decided to get a huge tattoo of her passed out and snoring on his thigh.
The ink was based on photo the 40-year-old had taken of his beloved while she was sleeping on an airline flight years earlier.
The unflattering image shows the mother of five zonked out with her mouth open as McGraw laughs off to the side.
“We've been playing pranks on each other for 24 years,” he told The Sun. “This time, I pulled out all the stops - there's no beating this.”
Needless to say, Kelly was not pleased with her husband’s new body art.
“There’s a line and he’s crossed it big time,” she said. “It’s still really raw. We do mess about anyway but this is on another level. I was horrified. I couldn’t believe it. I hated the photo so much.”
To make matters worse, the 37-year-old clams her husband modified the image to make it look more insulting.
She added: “It’s horrific and he’s added more chins!”
Not taking her anger too seriously, McGraw later shared the image of his tattoo with the caption: “Don't know what her problem is ....everyone else seems to like it.”
The post went viral with many in agreement that the prank was in good fun.
Someone who saw the gag in a positive light wrote, “A lifetime of laughs together- God bless!!”
Another played it more down the middle by commenting, “I see the funny and the brilliance of this. I mean, I'd kill my husband, but this is greatness.”
And a third piled on the praise by adding, “Absolutely brilliant.”
While Kelly is annoyed at her husband’s actions, she’s already plotting her revenge.
"I’ll think of something to get him back, but it’s going to have to be really, really bad to top that,” she confessed.
