A woman who is engaged to a 91-year-old chandelier has had her arm tattooed with a picture of the partner of her dreams.
Amanda Liberty, 34, from Leeds, had her tattoo designed by star of Tattoo Fixers, Alice Perrin on the hit television show.
Identifying as objectum sexual Ms Liberty is currently engaged to the chandelier called Lumiere and said it was love at first sight after spotting the light on eBay.
The chandelier was originally born in Germany ninety-one years ago and is 28inches wide.

The tattoo took one and a half hours to complete and Ms Liberty said she felt ‘nervous about the needle’ before getting inked, reports the Mirror.
However Ms Liberty was pleased with the end result and said: ‘Lumiere also thought it was brilliant, she gave me the energy telling me it was great.
‘She tells me when she doesn’t like things but she really likes the tattoo.’
Ms Liberty first fell in love with a drum kit at the age of fourteen and has since gone on to love the iconic Statue of Liberty, even changing her surname by deed poll to Liberty.
Amanda says that after seeing Lumiere (pictured) online it was love at first sight and she proposed to the light fitting on Valentine’s Day

Amanda said: ‘As soon as I saw Lumiere on eBay, I knew immediately that she was the one for me and it was love at first sight.
‘She was based in Germany and although I knew it would be tricky to get her home, I knew I needed to find a way to make her mine.
‘I couldn’t stop thinking about her and how beautiful she was – she has such a beautiful shape, and I could feel really amazing energy coming from her.
‘After buying the chandelier, I patiently waited for her to be imported into the UK and after six days of waiting, she was finally in my arms.
‘She had been disassembled for her own safety, but once I put all her pieces together and she settled in to her new home, our relationship just went from strength to strength.
Amanda, who identifies as Objectum Sexual, says that her chandeliers are not jealous of one another
‘A friend of mine actually named her Lumiere because of the film Beauty and The Beast, after the candlestick who comes alive.
‘Last Valentine’s Day I proposed to her, to signify our long lasting love.
‘I hope at some point we will have a commitment ceremony – I haven’t been engaged before so it’s very new and exciting!’
In December 2017 Ms Liberty said she prefered to spend her nights cuddled up to Jewel, a portable chandelier that she happily tucks in to bed with her.
Lumiere and Jewel are part of a 25 strong chandelier collection that Amanda owns, and even though she is only engaged to Lumiere, she considers herself to be in an ‘open relationship’ with the others.
She identifies herself as Objectum Sexual, which means that she is attracted to objects.
Amanda first fell in love with a drum kit aged 14, before falling in love with the Statue of Liberty years after, whom she affectionately refers to as ‘Libby’.

Amanda says that Jewel is more comfortable to sleep with and nice to cuddle in bed
Amanda, who changed her surname by Deed Poll in 2010 to Liberty, has travelled to the USA a total of six times to meet the real thing.
Her living room is adorned with memorabilia dedicated to the monument and despite insisting that she still loves Libby, the long distance between them left her lonely.
She now happily resides with her many chandeliers at home, many of whom she has restored to pristine condition.
Amanda said: ‘None of my chandeliers are jealous of each other, they understand that I love them all for all of their different personalities.
‘For example, I love kissing and cuddling Lumiere, but I sleep with Jewel every night, as she is portable and very nice to cuddle.
‘I’ve always loved the look of chandeliers and when I saw my first chandelier, Luna, it was love at first sight.
Amanda insists that her feelings are completely natural, and she’s happy with her companions
‘You can’t control who you fall in love with and things just went from there.
‘I spend my spare time restoring old and broken chandeliers to their former glory, which I really enjoy as I can tell that they enjoy the attention that they receive.
‘My dream job would be to work in public buildings such as Buckingham Palace, looking after the grand chandeliers that they have there.’
Despite her unique relationships, Amanda insists that her feelings are completely natural, and she’s happy with her companions.
Amanda said: ‘People often can’t understand that this is just a natural orientation for me, that I can find the beauty in objects and can sense their energy.
‘I want others to see how happy the chandeliers make me, and how much they’ve enriched my life.
‘I’m not hurting anyone by entering in to a relationship with them, I am simply just following my heart.’
