Woman Gets Tattoo Of Louis Theroux Naked On Her Leg And We're Obsessed

Let's face it, Louis Theroux must be one of the most universally loved TV stars on the planet. There are very few people who don't stan him.

But one super-fan proved her undying love for the documentarian burned brighter than the rest as she tweeted a picture of him etched onto her leg.

Now, I know what you're thinking....Louis Theroux tattoos, she's hardly the first. However, 22-year-old Chelsie Richards' took it one step further and got the BBC star inked on absolutely naked.

Copying *that* iconic promo image from Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends (you know, the one where he's starkers covering his privates with a feather bower), Chelsie couldn't wait to show Louis the design as she informed him she'd just bought his new book.

In response to a post Louis had written promoting Gotta Get Theroux This, she wrote: "Ordered my new favourite book to go with my new favourite tattoo".

And he responded in the most Louis way ever, clearly unfazed as he simply tweeted back: "Good decision".

Naturally, Chelsie's Louis tribute - inked by tattoo artist Samantha Perry - quickly got a lot of attention online, racking up over 100 'likes' in a matter of hours.

Speaking to Pretty 52, the barmaid from Norwich - who already has 19 inkings - explained what inspired the incredible addition to her left leg.

"I just really love Louis and thought it would be a funny joke between me and my friends because they always bully me about how much I love him," she told us.

"I've always been a massive fan. I've seen all his documentaries about five times each, I have him on my phone case, on T-shirt's...my best friend even got me a framed picture of him".

Die hard fan Chelsie's other tattoos include two naked women on her legs, so adding a naked Louis to the body art seemed the perfect fit.

Despite acknowledging her tat is a bold move, she has no fears about regretting it in the future.

"I know my tattoos are permanent and that one or two are silly but I'll always look back at them and laugh at them," she added.

So, how have people responded to naked Louis so far?

"People's reaction has just been laughing at it which is good to me," she went on. "That's what I wanted, I never expected it to get so much attention.

"Honestly I never thought in a million years he'd acknowledge it. If he laughed and was like 'what an idiot' then I'm happy".

We love it.
