This tattoo of a hand and a heart looks like a hand and… something else

Ah, god.

Ah, god.

We’ve all seen our fair share of dodgy tattoos in our time.

There’s words spelt wrong, words in other languages that don’t mean what they’re supposed to mean, words that say people’s names which is always a bad call in general when it comes to getting permanent ink on your skin.

However, one tattoo has surfaced online that doesn’t contain any words but definitely looks like something it shouldn’t.

Twitter user ‘gutphobia’ took to social media to share a photo of the tattoo which is (apparently) supposed to depict a hand holding a heart within another heart.

But in this case, the inner heart doesn’t so much resemble a heart as it does a pair of balls.

And yeah, you did unfortunately read that correctly.


We mean, we can see where the heart is supposed to be, but on first glance there is absolutely nothing else that this tattoo can be other than a pair of balls.

Or, as ‘gutphobia’ so eloquently put it, a nut sack.

Her tweet has already racked up over 3,000 retweets and almost 10,000 favourites.

And, seeing as it did so well, she then decided to mention the tattoo artist in her follow up tweet.

Credit where credit is due, after all.
