Love is helping to extricate a tiny needle from your partner’s pus-filled toe-pimple…

A tattoo loving Swede who forgot about a needle which had been travelling around his body since 1974 has finally seen it again, after it burst out through his big toe.
Ulf Bergström, 63, from Måla in northern Sweden said the needle entered his arm forty years ago when he was a keen amateur tattooist.
“So I put the needle in my arm and then hey presto it disappeared,” he told the Norran newspaper.
Bergström sought medical help and even got an x-ray which revealed nothing. The 17mm needle had vanished at least for a few decades.
“After the needle didn’t ‘get in touch’ I completely forgot about it,” said the 63-year-old.
That was until a few days ago when he was reunited with the needle after developing a severe pain in his right big toe.
