A 34-year-old woman who is engaged to a 91-year-old chandelier have had her arm tattooed with a picture of the partner of her dreams. Amanda Liberty, from Leeds, had her tattoo designed by star of Tattoo Fixers, Alice Perrin on the hit television show. Ms Liberty found the chandelier called Lumiere and said it was love at first sight after she spotted it on eBay.

The chandelier was originally crafted in Germany and is 28 inches wide. The tattoo took one and a half hours to complete and Ms Liberty said she felt 'nervous about the needle' before getting inked.
However Ms Liberty was pleased with the end result and said: 'Lumiere also thought it was brilliant, she gave me the energy telling me it was great.
'She tells me when she doesn't like things but she really likes the tattoo.'
Ms Liberty first fell in love with a drum kit at the age of fourteen and has since gone on to love the iconic Statue of Liberty, even changing her surname by deed poll to Liberty.

After buying the chandelier, I patiently waited for her to be imported into the UK and after six days of waiting, she was finally in my arms.
'She had been disassembled for her own safety, but once I put all her pieces together and she settled in to her new home, our relationship just went from strength to strength.
In December 2017, Ms Liberty said she prefered to spend her nights cuddled up to Jewel, a portable chandelier that she happily tucks in to bed with her.
Lumiere and Jewel are part of a 25 strong chandelier collection that Amanda owns, and even though she is only engaged to Lumiere, she considers herself to be in an 'open relationship' with the others.
She identifies herself as Objectum Sexual, which means that she is attracted to objects.
