Grieving mum Kim Mordue will carry a part of her tragic son with her for ever â€“ after having tattoos made from his ashes. The 50-year-old mixed the remains with ink to create these designs on her body as a lasting tribute to Lloyd Evans who died three years ago. Kim, of Llanelli, Dyfed, was heartbroken when Lloyd, 24, died on a night out after taking party drug GHB. The tattoos, a cabala tree, an angel releasing a butterfly and a poem dedicated to her son, were drawn by Kim's husband David who runs his own parlour. Kim also hopes they will highlight the dangers of drugs.
Billy Gibby, aka "The Human Billboard", is going for a Guinness World Record for the most corporate logos tattooed on a human body.
