Dustin Marshall got a tattoo of his and his girlfriends cat Pinky inked on his butt with the caption "Will you marry meow?"
He staged an elaborate scheme to reveal the tattoo to her in front of a group of friends.
Dustin explained the elaborate proposal also involved a game of pool at his mate's, which would be a sure-fire way of getting his backside out for all to see, including bride-to-be Lindsey.
"To reveal my bum tattoo, I had to on purpose get seven-balled at pool in my neighbors' bar in their back garden," he said.
"If you get seven-balled then the pants come down. I'm a very good pool player so you can imagine the shock among the regulars that know me.
"Down came my pants, everyone cheered and Lindsey, my fiancé put her face right in there so she could read the question. This gave my friend Danny time to give me the ring he had stashed and I presented to her as she came up from reading my bum."
