A lighthouse-mad woman has had her favourite etched on her forever.
Emma Telford, 25, has visited 33 lighthouses – travelling from Inverness to Cornwall in the process.
When she found Happisburgh in Norfolk she took one look and fell in love.
So much so she decided to have a six-inch drawing of the lighthouse tattooed onto her calf.
Luckily, Emma’s 23-year-old baker boyfriend Ashley Gill doesn’t mind sharing his girlfriend with her hobby, as they tour the country together.
Photographer Emma, of Leeds, said: “It’s become a personal thing to me, so much so that when I visited Happisburgh in Norfolk I fell in love with the lighthouse, and decided I wanted to have it tattooed on me.
“I’d been thinking about it for a while but wanted to find the perfect scene. I’d been going to Norfolk since I was a kid but never really noticed the lighthouse before.
“So when I visited recently I was just struck by how beautiful the area looked.
“It’s a beautiful beach, a little secluded village with a traditional red and white striped lighthouse on the coast and I loved it.”
The full-colour lighthouse tattoo is six inches from Emma’s ankle half-way up her calf.
“I want to set the scene, put in the sea, the beach, show how beautiful it is. It’s a work-in-progress,” she added.
Emma’s been back to Norfolk five times to see her favourite lighthouse, as well as visiting 32 others, travelling as far as Moray Firth in Inverness and visited two light ships in the British Isles.
She said: “I first fell in love with lighthouses when I was in Cornwall about five years ago, at Trevose Head.
“From there I started researching lighthouses. I like that they’re for safety, they’re a sort of guiding light.
“It’s quite a romantic idea actually.”
Ashley said: “I don’t really mind Emma being so into lighthouses – it doesn’t make me feel second-best.
“I’m really into castles and quite often when we visit a lighthouse there will be a castle in the area which I can see.”
