Tattooed swimmer in Potters Fields Park

Barely a day goes by without a publicity stunt or photo opportunity in Potters Fields Park - and the latest is a 35 ft sculpture of a tattooed swimmer.

The swimmer bears a tattoo showing a classic Japanese Carp shown on a bed of chips and newspaper with a Japanese wave-style splash of vinegar on top.

The sculpture remains in Potters Fields Park till Sunday 23 September. It's one of two sculptures that have been created as part of a promotional campaign for the Discovery Channel's new London Ink series featuring celebrity tattoo artist Louis Malloy.
