All tattoo artists will, at some point in their career, be caught off-guard by a request they’ve never heard before.
On top of the the many, many tribal patterns, inspirational quotes in foreign languages and the classic ‘mum’ in a red heart, tattooists also get thrown the odd curveball every now and again. From questionable placings to spur-of-the-moment inkings, a tattoo artist’s job is never dull.
However, when someone pulls a prank on you while you’re hard at work, it’s another thing.
Hilarious footage has emerged showing a woman with giant inflatable boobs, sat in a tattoo artist’s chair while he adds to her body art. Little does he know he’s in for a real banger of a surprise.
Check it out here:
At first, all seems fine, as she sits calmly watching him adorn her right arm, but as he switches to add a different colour, things take a dramatic turn.
The unsuspecting tattoo artist had no reason to think the lady’s bust was anything other than real (or, at least, not inflatable – he’s busy focussing on his work after all) and had no idea he was just about to fall for a brilliant prank.
At the precise moment he changes his needle and gets stuck in again, one of the woman’s large boobs explodes in his face.
Everyone was obviously taken aback as the guys behind her sprang back in horror and the poor body artist fell off his chair in utter shock.
The girl, who, at this point, should be reeling in pain from her apparently ‘exploded’ breast implant, instead, is seen in fits of laughter following the uproar she’s just caused.
And while it’s probably not a good idea to pull a prank on someone as they’re permanently inking your arm, it’s fair to say the woman, and those around her who were clearly in on it, got the reaction they wanted.
Hopefully the tattoo wasn’t anything that could’ve been messed up too badly by the prank.
Unlike this guy who, for some reason, got a portrait of Mia Khalifa on his leg, much to the annoyance of Khalifa herself.
Known for her spicy trolling of sports stars who attempt to creep into her DMs, the sports broadcaster had to publicly call someone out after they decided to tattoo her face onto their thigh.
She posted a picture of it on her Instagram and proceeded to grill the well-intentioned admirer in the captions.
STOP GETTING TATTOOS OF ME. This is not by any means flattering, it is OUTRIGHT CREEPY. Also, I had braces for way too long to accept that uneven picket fence you’re calling a smile as decent work, my teeth are fucking perfect.

Don’t finish it, save your money and cover this up with a tribal symbol or some other trashy tattoo you obviously already have if you’re willing to put A COMPLETE STRANGERS FACE ON YOUR BODY YOU PSYCHO.

While the piece was clearly unfinished, she offered some advice to the person in question:

Whoever thought getting something permanently inked on your skin could cause such a reaction.
