As someone with no tattoos, I can only imagine the horror some experience when they discover their ink has a hidden meaning. Like this woman below:
Brittany Lewin, from the US, posts pretty regularly on her TikTok account, providing content that consists of her hanging out with her mates and just general stuff she wants to share with the world.
But she also has a tattoo of a pineapple on her forearm - which is visible in a lot of her videos.
Unfortunately for Brittany, however, she recently discovered that for some viewers, the innocent pineapple has a whole other meaning.
In a video recently posted on her channel, she explained that she was horrified when she found out that the 'upside down' pineapple, which is what it becomes when she moves her arm, is a signal for swingers.
Brittany made the discovery after her mate told her to Google it.
In a screenshot of a text conversation, her friend says: "It's still going to make me giggle, I only just found out what an upside-down pineapple means."
To which Brittany replied: "Wait what? Googling right now."
She shared the video with the caption: "When you realise you've made a mistake."
And it wasn't just her pal who spotted the blunder, some other users did too.
Commenting on the post, one person wrote: "I’ve thought this every video I’ve seen of you. I just thought 'each to their own'."
"I always thought you and your partner were just into some extra fun stuff. I'm sad that you didn't actually know," another chipped in.
But she's not the only one to come to the realisation that the pineapple isn't always what it seems.
TikTok user Linda revealed last year that she and her hubby had bought matching swimming costumes for a trip away, complete with pineapple patterns.
And she explained that they were a bit confused as to why people were being 'a little too nice' during their holiday.
But Linda and her partner weren't the only ones shocked by the revelation - there were plenty of people in the comments who felt the same.
One user asked: "When did the pineapple start meaning this? I only heard of this a few weeks ago and only because I saw it on TT."
Another wrote: "I thought pineapples meant hospitality. I worked 10 years at an assisted living facility and everything was pineapples."
