If you get 29 Miley Cyrus-themed tattoos and you somehow think the pop star is going to find that charming, well ... chances are you'll end up disappointed. Such is the tragic story of 42-year-old Carl McCoid, a UK father of three who says he's spent more than $4,400 on his Miley-themed tats, which run the gamut from her name to her face to her signature to the titles of her songs and albums. But Cyrus recently mentioned McCoid in an interview, calling his tattoos of her face "really ugly," and now McCoid (who also named one of his daughters after Cyrus) is re-thinking the whole thing.

"I got my first tattoo of Miley after I was divorced in 2010, but it got to the point where it was getting obsessive," he admits to the Mirror. "She mentioned they were creepy in an interview. It made me realize I didn't like them." So, he says, he'll have at least three of the portrait inkings removed. He's been featured on TV shows including My Tattoo Addiction in the past, and this latest move will be featured on Tattoo Disasters UK, he says. "It's going to focus on how I felt when Miley said she didn't like the tattoos. It's going to be emotional." See photos of the tattoos here. (More Miley Cyrus stories.)
