GETTING A TATTOO can be something of a risky business – but usually those who are disappointed can eventually have their tattoo covered up with a new one.
Unfortunately for a TikToker Ally K it didn’t quite work out the way she hoped, she said she now had to get another coverup for her coverup.
In a clip shared to her @allyklem account, she shows off her original tattoo, a heart and Roman numerals behind her ear.
She then shares what she asked for, which was flowers, in the same place – and although she got a flower, it wasn’t exactly what she asked for.
And to make matters worse, the original tattoo was still visible underneath, especially since the cover-up started to fade a bit in the months that followed.
After her video went viral, the tattoo artist actually got in touch with Ally, who she shares in an update video.
In this video, she says the artist said he was having a bad day mentally, and he will return her money if she takes the video down.
Ally points out that if he was having a bad day, he shouldn’t have tattooed her and could have just said he was sold out, but she agrees to take the video down once she gets her money back.
However, the money, $150 plus tip, was never returned and his original video remains visible.
In her update, she also explains that she originally wanted a black and white tattoo, but the tattoo artist added color without even discussing it with her first.
Comments on the two videos are rather divided, with some suggesting that Ally should be partly responsible for the tattoo.
One such commenter wrote, “Not on their side or anything, but you agreed to this plan?”
“Why did you approve of the stencil? asked another.
Some commenters have pointed out that her brainchild actually wouldn’t have worked as a cover-up – but again, it seems the tattoo she ended up with didn’t work either.
One commenter, who sided with Ally, wrote: “He just did color without you knowing?!?!?!? And that was $150?! Yeah def bad deal from their part. I’m sorry this happened to you.
And a second replied: “If the artist couldn’t do it, he should have told you so you could find someone who could.”
