Marco's marital inking was first spotted in November last year just a few months after he wed Zoe in a secret ceremony in London.

While there's no denying Zoe makes for an attractive tattoo and it was definitely a loving gesture having her grill being permanently etched on his skin - even Kelly Osbourne advises against lover-linked tats.

When a girl who has "Stories..." tattooed on the side of her head questions tattoo decisions you better sit up and take notice.

Even Zoe, whose face can now be seen on her hubby's left forearm, thought it wasn't the best of ideas.

"It was the most romantic thing," she told People. "I didn't stop him, but I did sort of try to talk him out of it. I've done crazier things than that, and I'm pretty sure he has, too."

The question is would you really want to look at your face day in day out drawn on to the body of your other half?

We're not sure we'd be game.

And what's to happen if - dare we say it? - their marriage doesn't last? Will he do a Katie Price and simply have a big ol' cross tattooed across it? Will he keep if for the memories? Or will he have to go through the excruciating process of having it removed?

If you're thinking of getting a tat make sure you read this first.
