"...it's just a guy, about my age, on his way back from a gig. He asks us if we know who Laura Marling is, and we say we do, and he says we look like we would (I don't know what that means). He'd been to see her that night, on his own, and had been standing right in front of the stage and had lifted his leg up there to reveal to Laura Marling a tattoo, from his ankle to halfway up his calf.

"It said 'Laura Marling'. In child-like hand writing, large, with two child-like flowers at each end.

"It was not the best tattoo I'd ever seen.

"The woman herself saw it and proclaimed him to be 'the most chronically weird' fan ever, to which he replied that he was drunk when he got it done. So she told him he was 'the coolest' fan ever. Respect to her for acknowledging him. It must be really, really odd when people you've never met ink your name on their body permanently."
