A teenager has had a tattoo of Doncaster North MP and former Labour leader Ed Miliband inked onto her thigh.

Hannah Stock, 18, got the tattoo as a show of respect for the politician by getting his face permanently etched on her thigh.

The City University student told BuzzFeed that she got the tattoo because the former Labour leader is an "inspiration".

She said: “I just think he’s so great, and, like, I met him just before the election and it kind of all started there,

“I’ve been a Labour member for two years but he’s such a hero and he’s just an inspiration to me. I miss his direction of the Labour party at the moment so I woke up yesterday and thought, ‘Why not?’”

According to Ms. Stock, her mother "burst into tears" when she saw the tattoo and stopped talking to her.

“She wasn’t speaking to me for several hours,” said Hannah. “Last night she was pacing the house, crying, saying she didn’t know why I’d done this to myself and she didn’t know what she was going to do with me.

“My sister got a brilliant reaction video but unfortunately my mum has now warned me that under no circumstances can I share it with other people, which is a shame.”

She told the website she got the tattoo at Into You in Clerkenwell, London.

The "Milifan" said the artist was "surprised" by her choice of tattoo.

The parlour confirmed that she did indeed get a genuine Ed Miliband tattoo there.

A spokesperon for Into You said: "The artist is not in today, he only works one day a week. We don't know what he thought - it was just a surprise walk-in appointment, and he had time so he just did it."

She isn't the first person to have a politcian inked onto their body.

Last year, UKIP leader Nigel Farage came face to face with fan Kerrie Webb at the party's conference in Doncaster where she revealed she'd had a tattoo of the political leader on her arm. See video of Farage meeting his number one fan in Doncaster here:
