Deciding what design to choose for your new tattoo is a difficult task for most, but this woman had the best plan by getting her grandparents to do it.
Emily McNeill (@emilymcniell), a 23-year-old content creator from Ireland, went viral on TikTok for getting her grandparents to design her new tattoo – without them knowing!
In her video, which has over 4.2 million views and 750,000 likes, we see Emily ask each of her four grandparents to draw a flower.
Then, Emily heads over to a tattoo studio to get the flower designs turned into a stencil and inked onto her upper arm.
