Now that spooky season is literally days away - I'm sure we're all dusting off our witch hats, whipping out the cauldrons and scouring the shelves for fake blood in order to prepare for some major Halloween parties and trick or treating galore.

However, it seems not everyone need put as much effort into their costume as others as one parent who has been dubbed Britain's most tattooed mum.

Melissa Sloan, a 46-year-old self-professed tattoo addict, has revealed she 'doesn't need Halloween costume because she's scary enough'.

Melissa has impressively racked up a whopping 800 tattoos over the past 20 years.

It seems, however, that not everyone is a fan of her inked up aesthetic as she is still yet to receive an invitation for any spooktacular bashes.

However, if she did ever get invited to a themed party - Melissa said she'd have absolutely no problem when it came to figuring out her look for the occasion.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Melissa said: "People say I don't need a costume because I'm scary enough."

She went on to reveal people 'don't know the inside' of her, explaining: "I just take no notice of them as there’s nothing I can do, nothing I can do.

"I just carry on with the tattoos, more tattoos."

The mum went on to add: "I’ve never been invited to a Halloween party, I’d love to be invited but that’s not happened. I’d scare them all when I walk through the door."

However, it seems that's not stopped Melissa from having a proper good brainstorm over potential cozzy ideas.

"I would dress up as Freddy Kruger because you can’t see me underneath," she said.

"I’ll have a red and grey jumper with a mask. Can’t see me then can you!"

Melissa continued: "I'd also dress up as the guy from Chainsaw massacre, the one with the saw. I don’t know what people would say but they would stand and stare probably."

Opening up about the treatment she's received because of her heavily tattooed appearance, the Brit added: "People don’t like me with my tattoos, my face, because they just look at you like you’re worthless, you’re nothing.

"They don’t want people like us with tattoos on their face. They don’t understand us, do they?"

"We’re just exactly the same as anyone else," Melissa concluded. "We breathe the same, we live the same – but they just don’t want to know."
