A man who claims that a popstar helped him through a divorce has celebrated his musical hero, by getting 15 tattoos of Miley Cyrus all over his body.
Carl McCoid, 39, from Bridlington, East Yorks, has spent over 500 having tributes to the Disney singing sensation inked onto his skin.
The domestic cleaner is now a living tribute to the 19-year-old American singer, and has even splashed out 150 to have her face painted onto his left arm.

Carl has been showing off pictures of his Miley Cyrus tributes on social networking sites and now has 2,225 followers.

Following on from her acting career, she has had smash hits in the US charts such as ‘The Climb’ and ‘Party in the USA’.
Carl fell head over the heals for her back in 2009, when he was going through a difficult divorce. He now says that Miley Cyrus is his wife.
