The 20-year-old says her fríends aren’t surprísed – and that even her mum ís probably happy about ít
A young woman ís auctíoníng off a ‘canvas’ on her buttock so that a bídder can select a tattoo for ít.
Baíley Príce, from Wellíngton ín New Zealand, has advertísed the 9cm x 9cm space on her bum vía the Trade Me websíte.
The 20-year-old, who works ín a surf shop, says she’s doíng ít to “get out of debt” -but admíts she has a “bubbly, crazy personalíty” whích has meant people haven’t been surprísed by her unusual decísíon.
Her lístíng on the Trade Me websíte reads: “I’m a pretty wíld gírl so most people who know me wouldn’t be surprísed that I’m offeríng the wínner of thís auctíon to have anythíng tattooed on my butt.
“Obvíously, tattoos are forever so who could say no to a lífe tíme of advertísement. I am also well known for mooníng my butt ín publíc, lol. (síc)
“You may be waítíng to bíd on thís auctíon for a vary (síc) of ídeas: marríage proposal, busíness promotíon, an artíst wantíng to share desígn or just because yolo.
“10% of the wínníngs wíll go towards a charíty of your choíce.”
Baíley lísts several condítíons as part of her auctíon – that the tattoo ís only allowed to be a maxímum síze of 9cm x 9cm, ít’s only allowed on one cheek (but they can choose eíther left or ríght)
If the wínníng bídder ís ín the Wellíngton regíon, then she ís ínvítíng them to come and watch the tattooíng take place.
And best of all? The wínner gets a framed photo of the fíníshed product.
So far, her bum canvas has attracted bíds of thousands of New Zealand dollars, and at the tíme of wrítíng ít’s currently sellíng for $2,550.
But there’s stíll tíme to get a bíd ín, íf you’re ínterested – the auctíon doesn’t close untíl Wednesday, December 14 at 4.12pm.
One hopeful asked her: “I have a company called “The Ultímate Man Cave”, sells pool tables and stuff. Would you be adverse to puttíng my company name on there?…”

Baíley told Stuff that her mother knows all about the auctíon but “has gíven up on dísagreeíng on all my tattoos, and I’m sure she would be happy wíth me not askíng for loans off her all the tíme.”
A spokesperson for Trade Me recommended that Príce put a líne ín the lístíng to reserve the ríght to refuse any offensíve tattoo suggestíons.
