If you were wondering what exactly it might take to get banned from an airline for life, make sure showing off your Pinocchio crotch tattoo is on that list, because one passenger was lucky enough to experience that first hand.
While on British airline Jet2, Tom Washington (pictured above) was travelling with his buddies, one of which made a point to mention that Washington had a very interesting Pinocchio tattoo. Washington then unveiled his tattoo, which depicted Pinocchio with Washington’s penis, was seen by other passengers and that’s when the plane’s crew decided to take Washington’s passport and kick him off the flight. But that’s not the only strike Washington had against him during his time boarding the plane. He and his friends were actually dressed up as a bunch of flight attendants in full costume, wigs and makeup. They were also extremely drunk, as you could probably have already guessed.
Washington recounted the whole charming and unruly story that led to his lifetime ban:
“We got up in the early hours to do our make-up and hair like any presentable woman. We were all excited and sober at this point, and we got on to the plane with barrels of laughter from pretty much everyone – the airport staff and members of the public. I got up but because my jacket was too tight, it exposed my chest which I had covered with a bra. I then proceeded to help the cabin staff with the safety talk using a sex toy. There were some old men on the plane as well and they were a laugh. The lads mentioned I had a tattoo of Pinocchio, which I showed them, and that was the point where the manager took my passport.”
There were 23 friends involved but Washington was the only one that literally walked away with the ban. Hope the story was worth it. And if you have a tattoo like Washington’s, no matter how much your friends talk it up, no one cares to see it.
