A Tesco fan who had his Clubcard tattooed on his arm because he kept forgetting it says he has no regrets – even though he’s only collected £18 worth of points.
Father-of-three Dean Mayhew, 31, had the QR code for his card tattooed on his wrist – and it works perfectly under the scanner at the till.
Since getting the inking in July last year he says he has used it twice daily – and has sent photos of it to friends so they can use it too.
Dean says he has ‘no regrets’ about getting the ink – especially with food prices soaring.
He hopes by the end of the year he’ll have saved up enough to cover the costs of his family’s Christmas food shop to ease the pinch at an expensive time of year.

He got the tattoo (pictured) last July, and immediately went to a Tesco Express after leaving the tattoo studio, to test out the inking
Dean, a scaffolder from Bideford, north Devon, said: ‘I still use it all the time. I love the tattoo so much.
‘Sometimes when I go in there, the cashier doesn’t believe it’s real – I have to tell them ‘just scan it please!’ and they’re shocked.
‘Everything’s going up in price so I’m always making sure I get it scanned now.
‘With the points, I’m going to save them up and save towards the cost of Christmas.’
Dean got the tattoo on July 16 last year from artist Dan Rossetter, 39, at A Star Tattoo in Chessington, Surrey.
He said he had been considering it for months – and headed straight to the nearest Tesco Express to try it out.
Dean said he has to keep his arm hair trimmed to ensure it doesn’t block the bar code.
He added: ‘Sometimes for presents, in the toy section things will be half the price when you get a Clubcard discount.

Dean, who acquired the inking last July, says he has to ensure the area is relatively hair free, so that the code scans properly
While he could use the code saved in his phone, Dean says he prefers to get the tattoo scanned, as he finds it funny
‘I’ve also done in the past where I’ve gone to Tesco and done a big shop, and the points I saved up would take it down by half.
‘It will help out a lot, especially this year, with everything going up in price.
‘I definitely don’t regret getting the tattoo.’
Now he’s considering getting a tattoo of his Nectar card for when he shops at Sainsbury’s.
Dean said: ‘I could use the one on my phone but I want to use the one on my arm as it’s funny. ‘
