'Where's Wally?'

A Norwich man has had a huge 'Where's Wally?' scene - featuring 150 characters - tattooed on his back.

John Mosley's tattoo shows a view of Norwich with the city's castle and two cathedrals in the background.

It took tattooist Rytch Soddy 24 hours to create the scene - helping to raise £2,000 for charity in the process.

It also features some unusual characters including Darth Vader, a horse riding in a chariot pulled by two Romans and a man carrying a sabretooth tiger.

Wally himself - wearing his trademark glasses, red and white striped top, bobble hat and blue trousers - is hidden behind a trio of women in bathing costumes.

Mr Mosley, a 22-year-old music producer, said: "It will be a talking point for years to come. People will look at my back and have fun searching around for Wally."

The money raised will be donated to Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital in London.

Where's Wally was created by British illustrator Martin Handford and features the distinctive explorer hidden in montage scenes from throughout the ages.

The books have been published in 28 countries and have also been turned into a TV series comic strip and video games.

While he is Wally in Britan, he is known as Waldo in the USA, Hugo in Sweden, Willy in Norway and Charlie in France.

Andrew. :)
