This Woman Cut Out The Tattoo Of Her Ex-Boyfriend’s Name And Then Mailed The Skin To Him
Just in time for Valentine’s Day! Why mail a card when you can mail your flesh?
They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned - and here's a woman who's taken that fury to a terrifying new level in all literal sense
When 26-year-old Torz Reynolds found out her boyfriend of two years had been cheating on her she took revenge, in the most gruesome way possible.huffingtonpost.com
Miss Reynolds, from London, had thought Stuart 'Chopper' May broke up with her because he moved to Alaska to take a dream job. She even saw him off, tearfully, at the airport. But a week later Miss Reynold found out he had instead allegedly moved in with a woman he'd allegedly been having an affair with for six months.dailymail.co.uk
She decided she needed to remove her tattoo. With a scalpel. And then send the skin to him.
Miss Reynolds was shocked when she discovered from friends that Chopper was still in the UK and had allegedly moved in with his new woman.gawker.com
It took her an hour and a half to carefully slicing the skin from her arm. She then used a pair of dissection tweezers to peel the skin back.huffingtonpost.com
Afterwards, the remnants of the tattoo were put in a jar, wrapped up with a bow and sent via recorded delivery to her former lover
Miss Reynolds even tracked it online so she knew for definite that Chopper, 24, had received it.dailymail.co.uk
Miss Reynolds, originally from Colchester, Essex, said: 'I packaged it up so it really did look like a present. I even used different handwriting so he'd have no idea that it was me.metro.co.uk
'I can't imagine what his reaction was. I wish I could have been there to see it.'
'I don't like pain, but the skin coming off was actually quite relaxing. It was the after-pain that hurt the most. It felt like a nasty stinging sensation and putting on clothes was a difficult task,' said Miss Reynolds.dailymail.co.uk
'I'd always planned to send the skin to Chopper. After I had posted it to him, I didn't receive a response from him. 'Removing the tattoo like that was definitely closure. I like to get over things quickly and I always delete someone completely out of my life.'huffingtonpost.com
"Posting the tattoo to Chopper sent a clear message," she told the Daily Star. "Now he knows never to mess with me again."
She posted an image of the bloody result to Facebook in December. When a friend called the act "crazy," she replied, "Crazy was getting his name tattooed in the first place. . . cutting it out was just necessary! ;-P"thecelebritycafe.com
She then conceded that she may end up getting someone else's name tattooed on her body, because "Its not lyk there permanent! Haha! [sic]"huffingtonpost.com
But this is not the first time. This Facebook post from December 2013 indicates that she dealt with the tattooed name of a different lover in a similar fashion.
