Just Tattoo of Us star horrified over misspelled tattoo he can't get get rid of

Just Tattoo of Us star horrified over misspelled tattoo he can't get get rid of

A man who appeared on Just Tattoo of Us was horrified after learning he would be unable to get the body art removed.

Christian Walton appeared on the hit MTV reality show - which sees couples, friends and family members design each other's tattoos - back in 2018, but was left with more than just a tongue-in-cheek inking.

Instead, the young man was lumbered with a huge, bright-coloured and more importantly, misspelt inking – which experts are unable to remove.

Despite having seen other body art on Just Tattoo of Us, Christian signed up for the reality series with his friend, thinking that they’d never be picked by MTV producers.

"In 2018, I applied for Just Tattoo Of Us with my best friend, Megan. I never expected to get onto it, it was just a joke between us,” he confessed.

"We went down to London, we were so involved in it. We were so up for a laugh, that's just the kind of people we are.”

Three hours later and Christian was ready to see what his best had picked for him, with the grand reveal on camera.

On his back in large, multi-coloured lettering was the phrase ‘My first tatoo’ thickly outlined in black – including the misspelt word: tattoo.

Unlike many friends who’d appeared on the show, he and Megan didn’t ‘fall out’ over their body art – although he was a little worried about the size.

“The tattoo is definitely bigger than hand-sized. It goes from the base of my neck to the middle of my back, it's in between my shoulder blades," he explained.

However, the tattoo would soon cause issues and not just because of the typo.

As the tattoo was so bright, it showed through Christian’s clothing – leaving him a little embarrassed.

He said: "I can't even wear a white shirt at the moment because it shows through, especially when I'm dancing in a club and I get sweaty and the shirt sticks to my back.”

It caused even more problems for the former reality TV star, as a laser tattoo removal clinic - who initially thought they were being pranked after seeing the design - stated they are unable to help him.

A spokesperson for the Laserways clinic explained last year: "In Christian's case for example, if we were to start the removal process we would be unsure as to how the tattoo would look once completed."

Concerned about a 'patchy' outcome, the clinic said: "Having taken these factors into account the likelihood of Laserways being able to provide Christian with a good result are very slim, therefore we would not treat this tattoo at any of our clinics."

After such as setback, Christian has had to make peace with his ‘cursed’ body art, saying: "I'm kind of over it now.”

Talk about making a spelling error.
