A TOURIST who got a giant tattoo design on his forehead while drunk on holiday has been savagely beaten by a group of men at a bar.
British expat Paul Ferrell, 32, had a tooth knocked out and others left out of place when he was attacked by 10 men at a bar in Cambodia. The mob was furious after spotting Paul’s Taiwan, forehead tattoo, which is spelled in traditional Chinese characters after he removed his hat at a bar in Sihanoukville Square in Sihanoukville. When he refused to recognize the group’s claim that Taiwan is part of China, all hell broke loose.
One of the men from the group, believed to be overseas workers, shouted in Mandarin Taiwan, China, and in response, Paul yelled Taiwan, Taiwan. Paul says that they then went insane, grabbed poles and started attacking me, while insisting he says that Taiwan is part of China, Taiwan News reports. After the attack, he can no longer close his mouth properly. He also suffered a nick to the head and a big lip.
On a post uploaded to Facebook, Paul, who has lived in Taiwan for 14 years, warned others to be cautious in Cambodia.

He wrote: “In future not going to take my hat off, getting a tattoo design removed btw, as was a stupid drunk error tattooing it tattooed on my face, any other part of my body would have been fine, but not the face, had four laser removal already so flag on chin gone almost already still require a few more for forehead”.
Last October, Paul made the headlines when pictures of his head tattoo design, along with one of the national flags on his chin that has since been removed, emerged, infuriating his wife.
