A Costa coffee addict got a tattoo of one of the franchise's coffee cups.
Sam Cooper, 29, from Essex, believes he has spent more than £5,000 on coffee over the space of four years and now he has branded himself one of the biggest fans of the franchise with the life-like tattoo on his forearm.
He said to the Mirror Online: ''It embodies my love of Costa. You could say I'm an addict, I probably go there at least once a day and have done for the last four years.
''I thought, I've just got to do it. The thing with me is, I don't do anything by halves.''
The coffee fan showed his tattoo to the staff at his local branch and joked he may get a bacon sandwich tattooed next.
