The passport office refused his reneal  on the grounds his new name was not appropriate. Mr Mathew Whelan legally changed his name to  ‘King of Ink Land King Body Art The Extreme Ink-Ite’ last March. He goes by Body Art for short. He has a driver’s licence in his new name.

The British passport office stated that  a policy regarding ‘strings of words or phrases’ meant his name was not permissible.

Mr Art complained: :”They want to put my birth name on my passport. But that is not my name any more.

He has appealed the decision and is waiting for a response.
