WEST CHESTER, Pa. -- Call it a signature in very permanent ink.
A woman took a sign to Paul McCartney's show Sunday in Philadelphia requesting he autograph her back with a marker. Mr. McCartney called Rose Ann Belluso up on stage and obliged, and she decided to make the moment last forever.
She had Mr. McCartney's signature permanently etched onto her body at X-treme Ink Tattoo in West Chester. A tattoo artist went over the signature on Monday.
Ms. Belluso, of Downingtown, says the painful procedure was a no-brainer.
She says getting Mr. McCartney's autograph was the best experience of her life, behind only the birth of her two sons. It's also her first tattoo.
