Tattoos are a pretty big commitment so getting one in tribute to a significant other is a pretty risky business.
One TikToker knows this all too well after revealing they got an inking of their boyfriend’s name just one week before they broke up.
Ashlyn Grace (@..ashlyn.grace) — who uses they/them pronouns - quickly went viral when confessing this as part of a TikTok trend where creators address rumours to a remix track of “Rumour Has It” by Adele and “Rumours” by Lizzo.
In the video, the caption read: “I heard you got a tattoo of your ex’s name and y’all broke up a week later.” They confirm this by mouthing the Lizzo lyrics: “All the rumours are true.”
Since sharing their tattoo tale, the TikToker’s video has been viewed 6m times, with over 890,000 likes and thousands of comments from viewers joking about their predicament while also being intrigued to know more.
One person wrote: “That’s gonna be an awkward convo for the next guy.”
“When y’all gonna learn that this is BAD LUCK,” another person said.
Someone else added: “That’s why I’m never getting a tattoo for anyone.”
“Just put ‘is a red flag’ after the name,” a fourth person joked.
Ashlyn decided to give the people what they wanted and posted a follow-up video to reveal what the tattoo looked like.
“Don’t be alarmed, it’s a little big,” they warned beforehand.
Viewers were shocked when the TikToker turned around and lifted up their shirt to reveal a huge tattoo of the name “ALEXANDER” extending all the way down their spine.
