Tourist leaves people baffled after Arabic tattoo she got with strangers is translated into English

Being spontaneous on holiday is one thing, but deciding to get matching tattoos in a foreign language with a group of strangers is something totally different.

Over one million social media users were left in stitches after tourist Caitlin Delphine showcased her unusual tattoo on TikTok.

The solo traveller - originally from Sweden - has visited 33 countries so far and stays in hostels around the world.

However, her recent trip to Morocco was one to remember.

She got inked up with two other tourists as one decided to get a tattoo on their ankle, and the other got a matching one on their arm.

Taking to TikTok, the content creator wrote in the caption: "POV: You get matching tattoos in Morocco with people you met ten days ago in a hostel ago.

Caitlin's video has now been seen over a million times and for good reason.

The clip shows her new friend's arm with a word written in Arabic.

After filming herself using Google Translate's camera feature, Google Lens, she reveals that her Arabic tattoo translates as 'mayonnaise'.

Yes mayonnaise, which is usually dolloped on your chips, rather than your arm.

Fellow TikTokers pointed out in the comments that the tattoo writes out mayonnaise phonetically too.

The weirdest part of all this? This wasn't some kind of tattoo blunder, but was actually on purpose.

Caitlin said: "We were at lunch one day and talking about how beautiful the Arabic language is, especially written out.

"We picked up a mayonnaise packet and were like, 'Even mayonnaise is really beautiful written in Arabic.'

"So it became kind of like an inside joke and we ended up getting that as a tattoo."

She also said she realised the tattoo was mayonnaise spelled phonetically, but there was no real direct translation.

Naturally, people in the comments were loving it.

"You’ll never forget it at the store again. Personal permanent shopping list,” one user joked.

“I speak Urdu but can read Arabic (because muslim girl things) and I’m cackling,” another amused user wrote.

Someone else said: “Mayonnaise? What we eat? What kind of tattoo is this.”

Meanwhile, others saw the tattoo as a way to immortalise an iconic good trip.

“I think this one is kinda based. Just getting a stupid random tattoo with a stranger you met in a hostel is actually the perfect use of tattoos. Arabic Mayonnaise will always be an amazing memory whenever you look at it. And f*** it, we all die anyway, so why not get a tattoo lol,” another viewer tweeted.
