UKIP activist gets Nigel Farage’s face tattooed on her arm

Nick Duffy June 19, 2015

A mother has shared a photo of her new tattoo – featuring the face of UKIP leader Nigel Farage.

Kerrie Webb, vice chair of UKIP Chesterfield, shared a photo on Twitter after her tattoo session.

It features the leader of the UK Independence Party, Nigel Farage – who un-resigned as party leader last month after briefly stepping down.

Some have questioned the likeness of the tattoo – but it appears very similar to the image it was based on.


Ms Webb tweeted her tattoo at the party leader, adding that she “might put a quote with it”.

Perhaps she will consider one of Mr Farage’s favourite lines to go alongside the tattoo:

“People who do not have HIV, to be frank. That’s a good start.” – Nigel Farage

When asked what kind of people should be allowed in the country last year, Mr Farage suggested that anyone with HIV should be banned from visiting the UK.

“If I fail to win South Thanet, it is curtains for me. I will have to step down.” – Nigel Farage

The UKIP leader promised he would not stay on as UKIP leader if he failed to become an MP last month – but performed a rapid about-face just three days after throwing in the towel as leader.

“I feel a bit sorry for Kerry Smith.” – Nigel Farage

The UKIP leader spoke out to defend former UKIP candidate Kerry Smith, after he was recorded ranting about “disgusting old poofters” of LGBT in UKIP.

He said: “Kerry Smith is a rough diamond. He’s a council house boy from the East End of London, left school early, and talks and speaks in a way a lot of people from that background do.

“I feel a bit sorry for Kerry Smith because he’s a genuine fellow.”

“Now they chuck all the fags in the pool.” – Nigel Farage

A clip emerged earlier this year of the UKIP leader joking about Michael Barrymore and “fags” at his brother’s wedding. He later claimed: “There was absolutely no malice intended in it at all.”

“We are incapable of providing HIV treatment for people legally living here.” – Nigel Farage

The UKIP leader raised HIV a number of times during the election campaign, claiming that migrants with HIV had strained the system so much that the UK could no longer treat Britons with HIV.
