British woman who got 'engaged' to a 91-year-old chandelier now gets a tattoo of her 'fiance' on her arm
Amanda Liberty, who is sexually attracted to objects, got the tattoo of her fiance named 'Lumiere' designed by the star of 'Tattoo Fixers', Alice Perrin on the hit television show
A 34-year-old woman "engaged" to a chandelier got her arms tattooed with a picture of her 91-year-old "partner of her dreams."
Amanda Liberty, who identifies herself as objectum sexual, someone who is sexually attracted to objects, had her tattoo designed by star of 'Tattoo Fixers', Alice Perrin on the hit television show.
The tattoo of the chandelier, who Liberty calls Lumiere, took one and a half hours to complete and Liberty told Daily Mirror that she felt "nervous about the needle" before getting inked.
After it was completed, 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."
Liberty, who hails from Leeds, said it was love at first sight after spotting the chandelier on eBay.
The chandelier was originally made in Germany 91 years ago and is 28 inches wide.
Amanda told Daily Mail; "As soon as I saw Lumiere on eBay, I knew immediately that she was the one for me and it was love at first sight. She was based in Germany and although I knew it would be tricky to get her home, I knew I needed to find a way to make her mine. I couldn't stop thinking about her and how beautiful she was - she has such a beautiful shape, and I could feel really amazing energy coming from her."
She added, "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." She went on to narrate that her friend named the chandelier Lumiere after the film 'Beauty and The Beast,' where the candlestick comes alive.
"Last Valentine's Day I proposed to her, to signify our long lasting love. I hope at some point we will have a commitment ceremony - I haven't been engaged before so it's very new and exciting!"
Liberty said earlier she preferred to spend her nights cuddled up to Jewel, a portable chandelier that she happily tucks in her bed. Lumiere and Jewel are part of a 25 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.
"None of my chandeliers are jealous of each other, they understand that I love them all for all of their different personalities."
Liberty first fell in love with a drum kit at the age of fourteen and has since gone on to love objects, including the iconic Statue of Liberty, even changing her surname by deed poll to Liberty. She has traveled to the USA a total of six times to see the Statue of Liberty and her living room is adorned with memorabilia dedicated to the monument and despite insisting that she still loves "Libby," as she calls the statue, the "long distance between them left her lonely."
