New lips for father whose son refused to kiss him

A Harley Street cosmetic and medical tattooist has started work on the face of a young father who was left disabled and disfigured by a devastating bug. Alex Lewis from Stockbridge in Hampshire had all four limbs amputated and part of his mouth and nose removed after contracting Strep A toxic shock syndrome. Karen Betts tattoos permanent make-up on celebrities but has offered to improve Alex's looks for nothing. Kerry Swain went to his first appointment.
