Lagos - One always wants to be original in what one chooses to be tattooed on their body, and Barry Kirk from the UK is no exception as he got 60 baked beans tattooed on his head, Mirror reports.

Kirk, 60, who now goes by the name of Captain Beany, has a deep-seated passion for baked beans ever since he won the world record for longest time spent in a bath that was filled with baked beans.

His idea to have the beans tattooed on his head however was inspired by his recent celebration of his 60th birthday and he used this as a fundraising venture for the Marlie-Grace Roberts appeal which raises money for a three-year-old with cerebral palsy.
