A MUM-OF-SEVEN whose face is covered in tattoos says parlours have banned her because she has "gone too far".
Melissa Sloan, 46, from Wales, gets inked three times a week and carries a tattoo gun around at all times in case inspiration strikes.
But the mum says her DIY "prison style" tattoos, including three layers of ink on her face and a Kray Twins homage on her calf, have got her banned from professional parlours.
She told the Star: "Tattoo shops shut the door on me – tattooists won't let me in.
"They won't do it because I'm beyond help, because I've gone too far."
Melissa's DIY tattoos include a unicorn on the back of her head, a "RIP Mum" design on her hand, and a number of crucifixes and Playboy Bunnies across her body, and an England flag on her face which will soon be joined by a "moustache".

It comes after Melissa told The Sun: "People stop and stare and the hate is unbelievable.
"But I am me and I like the way I am. My mum always said she was proud of me and encouraged me to do keep doing what I loved.
"You only live once. Do what you want to do."
She added: "I started in my 20s and then it just grew and grew and grew.
"I'm addicted to it now, and now I get a new one once or twice a week.
"I couldn't count how many I've got. I'll keep going for as long as I live."
