Why Is Miley Cyrus' Superfan Getting His Tattoos Removed?

Xavier in Stories

Carl McCoid made waves by revealing his Miley Cyrus tattoos in the world wide web. He even had a Twitter account for that sole purpose.

Of course, everyone was either creeped out, disturbed, appalled, or simply too busy squirming at the news. It wouldn't have been such big news if it didn't involve a middle-aged man, Miley Cyrus, tattoos, and Miley Cyrus, in particular.

But Carl, the Miley superfan, has finally snapped out of it. Recently, he's shared his plans on getting some of them removed. It's going to take a lot of time and money, but the 42-year-old is up for it. "But I don’t think about the money it will cost to remove them. Tattoos have a psychological effect and to remove that is more important than the money," according to Carl.

Why the big change, though? We're not surprised Miley Cyrus herself caused the superfan to get the singer out of his skin. It started with an interview where Miley revealed, “There’s a dude that holds a record of the most pictures of my face, he has like 18 pictures of my face and they’re really ugly.” To which McCoid responded to with, “I just wanted her to know that somebody would do that and how special she actually was as a person and as an idol."

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 frame. 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.

Gaining over 10,000 followers on Twitter, Carl shared how his obsession with the young singer helped him nurse himself from his divorce. He was seen as a stalker, a creep, a pedophile, which really bothered him. Miley's official twitter has also blocked him when he first came out on the social media with his tattoos. Oh, harsh.

To make things worse, he even named his daughter after the singer. Though he admits that his fascination with the singer has gotten to the point of 'obsession', at least he's recovering. Sucks for him that the amount of pain he will undergo during the laser process is a ten-fold of the pain he endured from all those needles through the years.

Really wished he could have gone to a better tattoo artist, though.
