A MAN who hates working out got the perfect six pack tattooed on his stomach – just in time for summer.
In footage shared on TikTok, a man is seen struggling at the gym as he tries to get a toned tummy.
Finding himself not succeeding, his tattoo artist buddy offers to enhance his look with the help of a some permanent ink.
But all is not quite as it seems as the man who is seen struggling to work out was really a muse for a special tattoo project.
Dean Gunther, 34, was the artist behind the design – and it turns out he’d been wanting to bring the tattoo to life for some time.
He told The Sun Online: “I had seen really bad ones attempted before. Because I specialise in colour realism I wanted to give it a go.
“I thought it would be funny as hell.”
He says it took two days to complete – but early on in the process it nearly fell apart.
Gunther said: “The client nearly quit one hour into it on the first day but we got there.”
The ink artist, from South Africa, has a studio he works out of in Greater Manchester.
He says he was stoked to find someone who liked the fake six-pack as much as he did.
As it was more of a passion project, Dean didn’t charge him for the tattoo.
Once he was complete, Dean thought it would be funny to make a video for TikTok with the client.
The clip has proved a hit, with more than 62,900 views so far.
It comes as a man revealed that he was hired for a job just hours after a getting a face tattoo.
Maiko Newell initially took to TikTok to share the moment he went under the needle – which has since been viewed more than 25 million times.
