Darren Williams’ Only Fools and Horses £4,000 tattoo tribute

An Only Fools and Horses fan has spent £4,000 having his whole back tattooed as a tribute to his favourite television show, according to BBC. Darren Williams, from Bristol, said he had always wanted the tattoos and decided to have them before turning 50.  Mr Williams, 47, said he kept “watching and watching” the series as it always made him laugh.  To get the look he wanted, he spent 50 hours in the tattoo parlour, making it a less than “cushty” experience.  Only Fools and Horses was set in south London, and centred on hapless market trader Del Boy, played by David Jason, his brother Rodney (Nicholas Lyndhurst), the rest of the Trotter clan and a host of Peckham characters. It ran on BBC1 from 1981 to 2003 and included classic moments such as Del Boy falling through a hatch in the counter of a wine bar and the Trotters accidentally smashing a massive glass chandelier. Mr Williams – who runs a damp-proofing business – said the only disadvantage to his new inking was that he could not see the image on his own back.
