We could have sworn that Geordie Shore's Gary Beadle had already been inked at some stage, but it turns out we – and thousands others – were wrong.
Unlike his co-star Aaron Chalmers, Gary was totally tat-free… until now, that is.
Taking to Twitter to share the moment with his fans, the reality TV star gave an insight into his pre-tat process before eventually unveiling the finished creation to millions.
Eager to find out how large the tat was likely to be, one of Gary's followers asked: "You not getting the tiniest tattoo are ya?! Hope you doing it proper for your first."
Reassuring her that his 'go big or go home' attitude extended to the tattoo parlour, Gary insisted: "No, believe me, I've gone for it."
And he wasn't lying.
After three hours in the chair, the 28-year-old Geordie shared a snap of the inking, and it's not at all what we expected.

Explaining that it's a tribute to his mother, Gaz wrote: "Ok so today this happened. Thank you @Mattwebbtattoo mams favourite flower, some amazing colour, hand piece!"
But, unfortunately for Gary, not everyone was impressed by the inking, with one remarking: "Jesus, why wouldn't you go where @AaronCGShore goes that's not great at all!"
Leaping to his co-star's defence, Aaron replied to the comment, "Are you mad? That's a f*cking sick tat."
Gary's followers were having none of Aaron though, with another Twitter user adding: "It looks terrible m8. On ur hand no coverin it, and a flower wat man likes flowers on their hand lol."
Jeez guys, how do you really feel?!
