Tattoo man's MP calls for consistency in documents

'King of Ink Land King Body Art The Extreme Ink-Ite's' local MP, Liberal Democrat John Hemming, is calling for more consistency with names on official documents, as Britain's most tattooed man does have his new name on his driving licence, but has been refused a passport.
