In honor of the royal wedding, a British plumber named Barmy Baz Franks spent six hours and $1,664 of his hard-earned money getting tattoos of Kate Middleton and Prince William on his two front teeth. Dr. Neil Gerrard of the Clifton Dental Studio in Bristol sketched the design on paper and painted the artwork on using tiny brushes over the course of six hours. The temporary tattoos—apparently known as "gnasher tats"—will last up to three months. They can also be removed by lots of vigorous brushing.
Franks is a patriotic fellow who really wanted to pay tribute to the new royal couple. "I love the Royal Family and this was my way of lending my support to their Big Day," he told Small World News. Dr. Gerrard told the paper, "I’ve done some unusual dental cosmetics in my time, but this was certainly one of the strangest."
They kind of remind us of the designs you can get printed on M&Ms. Although those are cheaper and yummier.
