When 18-year-old Stian Ytterdahl’s friends dared him to get a tattoo, they gave him only two options to choose from – Barbie on his buttocks
or a McDonald’s receipt on his arm. They’re both terrible, but I suppose you can’t blame Stian for choosing the latter.
“Some of my mates thought I had been a bit too active on the ladies front recently and wanted to punish me,” he said. “When we were in the restaurant on Monday, they said I had to tattoo a Barbie doll on my bum, or the receipt on my arm.”
Incidentally, this is the teenager’s first tattoo ever, covering most of his lower right arm. There’s a large McDonalds logo at the top, followed by a list of items he ordered off the menu – a cheeseburger and four addedtoppings
Stian, from Southwest Norway, also said that his parents were not at all pleased with the turn of events. “I got an email from my dad that wasn’t entirely positive, saying: ‘What on earth have you done?! Do you think you are coming home with that!? Your mother has had a break down.’”
Stian’s parents got to know about the tattoo from a report in the local newspaper and they were devastated.
The media caught hold of pictures after they were shared by a tattoo artist on Facebook. When Stian had first approached him, he raised an eyebrow, but proceeded anyway.
The images, captioned
‘my strangest tattoo so far’, have garnered over 1,000 likes and over 200 shares. “It’s funny to think that I have a tattoo which no one else even has the likes of,” said Stian.
Even the date and time is on it. I might not find it funny when I am 50 or 60 years old, but it’s my choice. I might even get a job at McDonald’s now,” he joked.
The tattoo artist has put a weird twist on the story – he offered Stian to ink the receipt of the first tattoo on his other arm for free. It’s unbelievable, but he has accepted the offer. So he’ll have a tattoo of a receipt on one arm and a tattoo of the receipt of the tattoo of a receipt on the other. Now that’s just twisted!
