Three’s ‘Connect With’ – starring Beth England and Alice Perrin of Tattoo Fixers
Beth England has established herself as one of the best players in the WSL over the past three years, pulling Chelsea to a brace in the 2019/20 campaign.
The 2019/20 PFA Player of the Year is also a huge tattoo fan, and every piece of her body art has a certain sentimentality behind it.
As the official sponsor of the Chelsea shirt, Three is keen to bring the Blues closer to their community and give fans access to a team they have never seen before.
And in the latest episode of Three’s “Connect With” series, the England forward catches up with E4’s Tattoo Fixers Alice Perrin to talk about the stories behind her body art.
The Chelsea forward got a tattoo for the first time at the age of 18, having a puzzle tattooed on her wrist.
“It could literally relate to anything, but there will always be one piece in life that you find that will make you happy – which really seems to cringe!” England laughed.
“I did it right before I went to college and felt like a boss walking (around) like ‘I just got my first tattoo’.”

A number of England tattoos are sentimental, including a trio of elephants on one side of her ribs to represent her three sisters, and an angel on the other side to pay homage to her late aunt.
“I have an angel on my ribs for my aunt who is dead,” she explained. “She had leukemia and my mother did a bone marrow transport for her. Sadly, her body just rejected everything my mom gave her and she died.
The England international also has a tattoo on his lower forearm that says “twin” in Chinese, and his twin sister has a matching one.
“The best thing about being a twin is you’ve always had someone there,” England added. “For the first 18 years of my life, I always had a friend there and our tattoos really resemble our closeness.
Perrin then shows England a selection of tattoos she designed especially for the Chelsea striker – which mostly focus on England’s beloved dog Buddy. The pair promise to make tattoo design a reality (and talk more about Buddy).
