Athlone resident David Liss, who is originally from Poland, travelled to the Midleton Tattoo Show at the Midleton Park Hotel in Cork to get a tattoo of Star Wars character Padmé Amidala.
Padmé is the latest addition to David's Star Wars sleeve on his arm, which also features Darth Vader / Anakin Skywalker and Yoda. He hopes to complete the design by next year.
"You need to be a fan to put the Star Wars characters on your arm, on your skin. A big fan," David toldvideographer Dan Linehan.
David and tattoo artist Lukasz Konsek from Galway-based Illusion Tattoo hope the design will win them the Best of Show prize.
