- Emily Cook has claimed her henna tattoo from Leeds Festival stained her skin
- Posting on TikTok, the 19-year-old showed the ink on her chest since August
- Responses to the thread offered suggestions for how to remove the henna
A Stormzy fan who wanted to show her dedication to the singer has revealed her regret, after a temporary henna tattoo inked on her chest during the summer has refused to budge.
Posting on TikTok, Emily Cook, 19, explained that she paid £10 for the ‘I love Stormzy’ henna tattoo ahead of watching the rapper perform at Leeds Festival in August.
But the teenager revealed that the tattoo has not faded since, and she’s been left with the slogan emblazoned on her chest.
Henna tattoos usually last just two weeks, a flood of responses to the clip offered Emily advice on how to get rid of it.
