Amy works as a tattoo artist at Heart of Gold in Manchester with friend and owner Louise Slater, also of Bolton. 

What started out as a joke between the two quickly became a reality, when Louise designed and drew the tattoo on April 24.

Amy said: "It sort of started out as a bit of a joke, I did a guest spot at the studio in November and we joked about it then. 

"Then I started working and we made the joke again, then it got to the point where it wasn't a joke and I actually wanted it.

"Being from Bolton, I love Carrs Pasties

"I love it, she has done a really good job of it. I have got a few silly tattoos, but to be honest I like being able to look down, if I'm having a bad day, and to have a good laugh." 

Amy says her favourite flavour is the original meat and potato. 

Louise, who drew the tattoo, said: "Me and Amy have been friends for a couple of years. Amy lives in Horwich and I live in Bolton, and she gets the train into work. 

"When she is at Horwich Parkway, she goes to the Carrs Pasties shop. I was having a bad day once and she bought me a pasty, and she said she should get a Carrs pastie tattoo. 

"She is just proper Bolton through and through." 

Louise said it was "definitely a unique request", saying she had never done anything similar.
