Call yourself a Kauto Star fan?
You’ve got nothing on Emily Russell. from Northamptonshire.
The equestrian artist and racing fan has shown her support for one of her favourite equine heroes – by having him tattooed on her left calf.
“I’ve wanted a racing tattoo for a while and after Kauto’s fifth King George win it seemed fitting,” she told H&H.
The tattoo was designed by Lewis Davies from Gung Ho! Tattoo in Birmingham and it took 2 ½hr to do.
“I have eight tattoos and compared with my others it wasn’t too bad – in fact, it was the least painful of the lot, Kauto” added Emily.
She now plans to have Kauto’s stable-mate Denman tattooed on her right calf – to keep him company.
