Remember the video that was circulating a few days ago about that woman who got 152 of her “closest” Facebook friends tattooed on her arm?
Well… it appears we’ve all been hoodwinked, bamboozled, led astray… plain ol’ punk’d!
It was all a hoax!
The Netherlands woman claimed to have created a permanent tattooed reminder of all her Facebook friends and even posted a video that quickly went viral…. accumulating over 1.5 million views.
The woman who uses the name ‘Suzyj87’ had posted: ‘After months of work I want to show you all my social Tattoo. Pretty amazing right? I’m really proud of it. Hope you like it too!’
People took her seriously and ridiculed her for making with supposed irreversible decision.
Many YouTube users questioned whether Facebook friendships are as permanent as a tattoo.
‘Congrats on a getting a fine piece done. Hopefully you remain friends with all those people in the long run,’ wrote one commenter.

So while the Netherlands woman’s artwork has probably faded away by now, you can still rest peacefully knowing that T-Pain’s “Like Me” Tatt is very much a reality…
