A young woman who had the word ‘vegan’ tattooed on her forehead has hit back at critics who labelled her "unemployable".
Kate Bullen of Preston, Lancashire, took to Twitter last week to proudly showcase her new ink above her right eyebrow as well as a suicide awareness tattoo on her wrist.
"Got a suicide awareness and vegan tattoo today, love em," she wrote alongside the images.
But it didn't take long before the 22-year-old was ruthlessly targeted by online trolls.

“Stop the world, I’m getting off,” one Twitter user wrote in response.
"That tattoo is gonna look fantastic when she turns 70," another added.
"A lifetime of regret awaits you," said another.

Despite the online savagery, Ms Bullen remained unrepentant about her new ink, telling her critics that she was “incredibly passionate about veganism”.
“Of course the tattoo on my face received quite a lot of negative reactions because people seem to get upset when they see the word ‘vegan’,” she told Lad Bible.
“I've had a lot of comments saying I'm unemployable which doesn't matter to me since I've been self-employed since I was 18 and it's easy to cover with make up and a fringe.”
