Online casino GoldenPalace.com has snapped up yet another "human billboard" too carry its logo. This time, though, Londoner Nick Long is to have the GoldenPalace.com logo tattooed permanently on his back following an auction on eBay.

"I was inspired by 'The Human Pincushion' Brent Moffatt, who auctioned off his forehead on eBay recently for a permanent tattoo," said Long. "I thought 'well if he can do it, then so can I' - although I wouldn't have done it on my forehead!"

Last week GoldenPalace.com coughed up £422 to slap a temporary tattoo on the 42GG breasts of 27-year-old Angel Brammer.

Long's fee for a permanent tattoo is £3,100.

A spate of copycat "human billboard" stuff has kicked off on eBay recently with pregnant women, among others, offering companies the chance to stick their logos on their bumps.
