A father of a One Direction fan recently got a tattoo dedicated to the band in a failed attempt to win his daughter a VIP concert tickets.

Roger Fraser, 37 from Tennessee, tried to enter a competition by local Indiana radio station 99.5 WZPL, who were calling for dads to dress up like members of the boy band.

In an attempt to win the contest, Fraser wanted to stand out from the crowd and opted to be permanently inked with the message "I <3 1D".

However, Fraser was unable to actually enter the contest as he's not a permanent resident of the state, as required in the fine print of the competition.

He tweeted of the mishap: "got this tattoo to help my daughter win a contest well lol we can't win because we are not a resident, retweet !!!!!" See pictures above and below.

Fraser and his daughter Makalya, 14, did eventually attend the gig but not with VIP access.

"I got involved with something that they love," Fraser told ABC News. "And it's brought us together even closer than we ever were."

"We didn't get to meet One Direction. We didn't go on stage or get front row. But the reward has been all the memories that we've made."
