This is the diary of a heavily tattooed man as he makes progress towards a bodysuit. Why the tattooed toff? Because I am not as people think I should be. They assume from the way I speak and the clothes I wear that I am "normal" and are shocked when I show them my ink. I am a retired Chartered Accountant and retired BBC journalist too

World record skinny dip
I was there at the Gower peninsula on Sunday 19th June along with 400 others. I think the chap with the back piece tattoo on the top photo, upper right is probably me. You may need a microscope! There weren't many back pieces on show, so look carefully. It was an assault on all my senses. There was the cold, the force of the waves on Wales's top surfing beach, the beauty of the National Trust beach, the joy of all the participants and the initial fear of the unknown and then the euphoria.. I wouldn't have missed it for anything.
