Three Aussies Win Free Ramen For A Year After Getting Restaurant Logo Tattoo

For some people, ramen is life.

Whether they have it in instant noodle form or go to a restaurant to soak up all the delicious flavours, there are people out there who could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, every day of the year.

Well, for three lucky Aussies, they've been blessed with free ramen for a year from their favourite Brisbane joint.

What was the catch for this incredible offer? Oh, just get a tattoo of the restaurant's logo anywhere visible on your body and you get the ramen.

Yep, three Aussies have inked themselves in order to get one free ramen every week for one year.

I Like Ramen, in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley, put up the competition on Facebook, hoping they'd be able to find three willing participants within two weeks.

But the comp only lasted 12 hours before the restaurant was pinged with three messages from the lucky winners, who were proudly sporting their new ink.

One of those winners was Jo Thomas, who told The Project: "I think especially because it [has] such clean black lines and the shape of everything, I would just add on to the tattoo but 100 percent I would keep it for life.

"I really like the tattoo, actually. I definitely don't regret it."

She added to the Courier Mail: "It was a split second decision. But I would have done it even for one bowl of free ramen."

While she's yet to tell her dad about the new design on her ankle, Ms Thomas did run it by her mum first, who told her it was hilarious and an awesome story.

When you've got approval from one parent then it's definitely good to go, right?

Sure enough, it'll be a fun story to tell at parties while they're slurping down on some good ole ramen.
