Getting inked with your wife’s image is typically a permanent proclamation of love.
However, one UK man flipped the script on his unsuspecting soulmate with an unflattering thigh tattoo of his paramour snoring.
James McGraw, 40, a window cleaner from Portsmouth, wanted revenge on his wife Kelly for giving him a shoddy haircut as a goof. That’s why the jokester got a tattoo depicting his better half passed out on a plane with her mouth agape while he gleefully mocks her.
The trolling portrait is an exact replica of a sneaky cellphone pic snapped by the mischievousness hubby.

Go figure: The gag didn’t go over well with McGraw’s “horrified” wife, who told the Sun he’d gone too far. Despite the fact that the couple had purportedly played pranks on each other for 24 years, Kelly says “there’s a line and he’s crossed it big time.”
The social-media masses beg to differ.
James posted a Facebook pic of the prank with the caption. “Don’t know what her problem is . . . everyone else seems to like it.” The viral post garnered hundreds of reactions and comments such as “legend” and “can’t stop laughing every time I see this.”
However, some sympathized with his snoring soulmate. “I think it’s both ugly and mean,” commented one unamused poster. “[My husband] just showed me this I would kill him,” said another.
Fortunately, it seems James will live happily ever after. Kelly has since come around to the joke, even admitting to the Sun that she now can’t look at the picture without laughing.
However, James better not let his guard down. “I’ll think of something to get him back, but it’s going to have to be really, really bad to top that,” Kelly says.
“I’m also scared because I don’t know what she’s now planning,” admits James.
This isn’t the first time a husband’s embarrassing prank has tested the strength of his marital bond. This past September, another UK trickster ignited his wife’s wrath by locking his candy stash in an Amazon fridge safe to prevent her from eating it.
