January 11th, 2008

WIFE OFFERS SKIN FOR AD TATTOO TOOA Neath man offering to sell his skin as advertising space has been joined by his girlfriend in a joint bid to become human billboards.Nigel Michael, who has just moved to Fairyland with his partner Vicky, said she has bitten the bullet and decided to support him in his efforts to raise funds for their future.

The Evening Post revealed Mr Michael’s plans to sell his body for advertising space last November. And now the couple have decided to work together.

Mr Michael said: “She is going for it now and has decided she wants it done.”

The 26-year-old said the response to their offer had so far been good. A telecommunications company has offered them five-figure sums each to have tattoos on their backs, she added

The former Briton Ferry man said the company behind the offer planned to have its name emblazoned across their backs along with images of phones.

He said: “I have seen the designs and I liked them.”

Mr Michael said he had been offered a similar sum from a company in Scotland to have a promotional tattoo.

He said he would now be considering the offers and waiting for all the responses to come back from the 140 letters he has sent to different companies.

Mr Michael said in the meantime he planned to travel to the US with his girlfriend to visit a man who made millions of dollars from the skin-selling concept.

“We are hoping to go over to America in February, if we can save enough money, and meet the man who got paid 1.6 million by a pharmaceutical company”, he said.

The pair are hoping to learn from the master when they head to the States.

Speaking of the tips from the top he has already been given, Mr Michael said: “He had the idea of writing to different celebrities and publishing their good luck letters along with articles.”

Since he went public with his idea of an indelible advert last year, Mr Michael said his phone had not stopped ringing.

“People have mainly been saying good luck although I have had the odd ‘are you mad?’ comment”, he said.

The Evening Post first reported back in November how Mr Michael came across the idea of selling his skin while surfing the net.

He said at the time that he had a number of dreams he hoped the rent-a-body money would pay for.

Summing up some of these, Mr Michael said: “I would like to pay off all my debts, get gastric bands fitted for myself and my girlfriend, travel and set ourselves up for the future.”
