PICS: Two Irish men mark the end of Enda Kenny's reign as Taoiseach with a unique tattoo

The boom is back, baby.

Getting a tattoo can be a quick decision where you just decide one day, 'you know what, I'm going to get a tattoo today for the craic.'

It can also be a well thought out plan where hours are spent on the internet trying to find the best deals and trying to figure out just exactly what sort of tattoo you want.

This was a strange case of both.

Two Irish boys, Col and Straw (they want to keep their real names anonymous) were on holiday in Ayia Napa. Enda Kenny had just announced he was stepping down as leader of Fine Gael and Col and Straw were delighted to hear the news.

They had been talking for a couple of weeks before this about how if Kenny was sacked or left his position, it would immediately mean a start to a better Ireland and they even dared to say that it would bring a return of the good times.

Well, Kenny resigned and it was time for the two men to stick to their word and get inked up.

Col got in touch with JOE and told us that, "since Enda Kenny stepped down, the boom has been back and myself and my mate got tattoos to state this."

Col went on to add that, "we were joking how Enda Kenny was getting sacked and how we thought the boom will be back if he does.

"So we were in Ayia Napa and found out Enda resigned back home so we found a tattoo parlour with a dodgy buck outside so we said fuck it, lets do it! 'The boom is back baby'."

Cheers to Col and Straw for sending this our way. Got a story for JOE? Hit us up on Facebook or Twitter, send it to our WhatsApp number 087-4001102 or mail editorial@JOE.ie.
