A Feniton mum has received a free inking from a tattooist who simply wanted to give something back to a rewarding and special person.

The Herald reported in November last year how home-based tattoo artist Jason Everett-Brown, owner of Feniton-based Jodypig’s Tattoo Artistry, launched a hunt to find a worthy recipient of a free ink.

Nicola Boucher was selected from dozens of people, and received her tattoo last Thursday (February 5).

In the last seven years, Nicola has suffered countless heartbreaks – miscarrying three times, losing her father-in-law and being diagnosed with cancer.

The tattoo – which reads ‘Too beautiful for earth’ – is a line from a poem written by Nicola’s husband, Clifford, shortly after she suffered her third miscarriage.

Jason said: “I was over the moon to give Nicola this tattoo – it kind of put a full stop on a period of her life.

“She had her son Ethan with her and her mother-in-law, too.

“It was lovely family occasion.”
