There are few people’s names that I’d consider getting etched into my skin permanently and I can say with a high degree of certainty that ‘Gabriel Agbonlahor’ isn’t one of them.
Agbonlahor isn’t even a nice word; it sounds like some sort of tropical illness.
However, that didn’t stop one lucky Aston Villa fan who only went and got the English forward’s name tattooed on her body for real. She stuck to her word after making the promise to get his name tattooed on her bum if he scored against Sunderland in the Premier League last week weekend.
The striker made sure that the outcome was never in doubt by netting twice against the Black Cats to seal a 4-0 win for his side and put an end to Gus Poyet’s reign at Sunderland.
Samantha Eldridge made the promise on Twitter before the game that she’d get the tattoo if the striker scored in his 300th appearance for Villa.
