Rolls-Royce Motors fan Khent tattoos brand’s famous logo permanently on his face despite never owning one.
Now, the 29 year old, who has been obsessed with Rolls-Royce cars since he was a 7-year-old boy, can’t get a job.
But the Florida man still dreams of driving the real thing – which starts at £360k – one day as a proud owner.
A Rolls-Royce Motor fan, Khent Amentiu, has tattooed the brand’s famous emblem permanently on his face despite never owning one of the marquee’s former or current lineup of vehicles.
The 29 year old, who grew up in Philadelphia but lives in Florida, said he has been obsessed with Rolls-Royce cars since he was a seven-year-old boy when he saw his dad looking at Rolls-Royce cars on eBay.
He told the Daily Star :
“The reason I got it was according to my father, they were the best money could buy. I was in the second grade.
“Ever since, I was always fascinated with the marquee. By the 11th grade, I was buying and selling a few used cars but the Rolls-Royce always eluded me.
Ironically, his inked cheek, which he got earlier this year, has prevented him from finding work.
“Employment hasn’t been the easiest but I’m not discouraged.
But Khent still dreams of driving the real thing one day as a proud owner even though a brand new one starts at around £360k.
“People ask me all the time if I actually own one. My answer is that I hope to have one someday.”
His obsession for the British luxury marquee even grew more when his teacher called him ‘Rolls-Royce Phantom V’.
“One day, I was sitting in physics class and I noticed my teacher staring at me with a sort of wistful smile on his face.
“When he knew I saw him, he said ‘Rolls-Royce Phantom V’ and started laughing. This could not be a coincidence.”

On the mixed reaction received after showing off his tattoo online, Khent said:
“The vast majority were negative but it is easy to forgive.
“Those who speak from ignorance can’t be held accountable. I got the tatts so I know I can handle those light jabs with panache.
“Truthfully I laugh at most of the idiotic comments.”
