EIGHTY minutes on the rugby pitch is no problem for 6ft 4ins, 17-stone prop forward Darrell Griffin.
But the Giants star is taking on a whole new pain dimension in a 15-hour tattoo marathon.
The 30-year-old is braving the needle to raise cash to help little Ebonie Webb whose father, Michael, is a Giants fan.
Four-year-old Ebonie was diagnosed with a brain tumour when she was just six months old and needs a special kind of proton therapy which is only available in the USA and costs £75,000.
Darrell said: “I like tattoos – I’ve got quite a few already – and I just thought I’m in a position to help and I’d hope people would help if I was in the same position.
“The worst tattoo I’ve sat for before is four hours and then I was ready to throw in the towel so it’s going to be a hard 15 hours.
“We thought it’s no big deal just getting a tattoo and the tattooist offered and we thought it would be a real challenge to do 15 hours.”
On October 16 Darrell will be having an angel with two cherubs inked on to the left hand side of his torso.
The cherubs will represent his two children, five-year-old Jacob and two-year-old Maya.
And he will also have a ‘sleeve tattoo’ done which will cover his whole left arm.
The Super League player met Ebonie’s dad while doing autographs for fans at the Galpharm Stadium.
“We became good friends and I wanted to do something to help,” he said.
“I also have two young children who are a similar age to Ebonie.
“Ebonie came to my little girl’s second birthday party.
