After revealing earlier this month that, rare amongst his co-stars, he was completely free from any inkings, Gaz also teased that he may be getting one in the near future. On Monday (22nd August), it seems as if that day finally arrived.

True to form, the Geordie Shore long-timer teased his fans by informing them of something big coming up later in the day, Tweeting: ‘S*it today is the day’ – and if the anxious-looking emoji is anything to go by, he was feeling pretty nervous about it!

However, he was keen to let the people know that despite some reservations, he’d be stepping up to the plate without any pain relief: ‘Went for no numbing cream or painkiller option’.

From this, his fans were able to start guessing that Gaz would be getting his very first tatt done – and as his Snapchat demonstrated, they were correct!

Taking over three hours of expert needlework, Gaz finally unveiled his tattoo – a rose, on his left hand:

Good stuff – but the truly lovely thing about it is the fact that the rose is in recognition of his mum’s favourite flower.

‘I give @mattwebbtattoo my mams favourite flower a blank hand and could not be happier with the finished piece love the colours the shading the white finishing touches just everything thank you,’ he proudly captioned his picture of the finished piece.

In any case, we doubt this’ll be his last time in the chair – he’s a very happy customer!
