The "most tattooed mom in the UK" shared that she had never been invited to a wedding and was not even allowed to attend her own mother's funeral.

She told the Daily Star about it. 

Melissa Sloan, 47, has at least 800 tattoos on her body. Every week, the woman gets three or four new designs. At first, she couldn't find a job, then she was banned from pubs, tattoo parlors, Halloween parties, and even her children's school Christmas performances.

Even though Melissa was criticized, she could always rely on her mother no matter how many tattoos she had on her body. However, after her mother passed away in 2020, she now only has her partner Luke and two young children with whom she lives. Her other five offspring do not communicate with her.

Not only is Melissa not invited to celebrations, including weddings, because of her appearance, but she was also banned from attending her mother's funeral.

"I wasn't even allowed to go to my mother's funeral because of the way I looked," she said. "They didn't want me there. My family didn't want me there, all my relatives didn't want me there. I should have just come. But it really comes down to my tattoos, so they didn't want me to show up. I had to stand my ground. Someone could say, "Well, why didn't you leave afterwards, when they all left?" But my mom would have been very proud of me for doing what I did and what the newspapers said."
