Charles Ramsey, who was credited with helping three kidnapped women in Cleveland, has been immortalized in ink — on a local man's leg. Tattoo artist Stephen Munhollon says he was caught up in the celebration of the women's rescue. He sat for five hours while another artist worked on Ramsey's likeness, according to Fox 8.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep.

Americans have celebrated Charles Ramsey almost every possible way and that includes Stephen Munhollon's tattoo. Ramsey saw trouble at a neighbor's house and rescued the three kidnapped women. Munhollon says he was caught up in the celebration. He's a tattoo artist. Fox 8 in Cleveland says he sat for five hours while another artist tattooed Ramsey's face on the back of his leg. Munhollon says people will ask to have their picture taken next to his calf.
