WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Call it a signature in very permanent ink.

A Pennsylvania woman took a sign to Paul McCartney's show Sunday in Philadelphia requesting he autograph her back with a marker. McCartney called Rose Ann Belluso up on stage and obliged, and she decided to make the moment last forever.

She had McCartney's signature permanently etched onto her body at Extreme Ink Tattoo Parlor in West Chester. A tattoo artist went over the signature on Monday.

Belluso, of Downingtown, says the painful procedure was a no-brainer.

She says getting McCartney's autograph was the best experience of her life, behind only the birth of her two sons. It's also her first tattoo.
