Bad Idea Sleeve of the Day: Why tattoo the name of a single loved one when you can permanently stain your arm with the faces of 152 forgettable acquaintances?
Meet susyj87: A Dutch body-mod enthusiast who forewent the well-worn non-crazy route and had every single one of her Facebook friends inked into her flesh.
Facebook friends tattoo is an advertising stunt
Wednesday 08 June 2011
The Dutch girl's sleeve tattoo featuring 152 Facebook friends is a fake, the Telegraaf reported on Wednesday evening.
The girl, named Susyj87, apparently placed a video of the tattoo process on YouTube and it went global within hours. Even CNN carried the video on its site.
However, Rotterdam tattoo artist Dex Moelker eventually came clean on the Telegraaf website, admitting the tattoo and video is an advertising stunt.
'It is a try out tattoo, a transfer, that washes off in a couple of days,' Moelker, who has a tattoo shop in Rotterdam, told the paper. It took a couple of hours to apply the transfer not the 30 hours the video claimed to produce the real tattoo.
