A WOMAN has shared how her dream of having a floral tattoo majorly backfired when she got the complete opposite of what she asked for.
Ellie Adda had always wanted a large flower design in a subtle shaded effect on her shoulder.
She excitedly booked into a tattoo artist, who she had researched, and couldn’t wait to see the results.
However, when the inking was finished, Ellie was left totally stunned – and not in a good way.
Ellie shared her horror story on her TikTok account @ellie1233452, as she showed off before and after images of the tattoo in question.
After describing it as a “tattoo fail”, Ellie compared “what she wanted” with “what she got.”

The video then cut to Ellie’s tattoo – a much darker and heavier version of what she had asked for.
Ellie then revealed her major disappointment as she wrote: “I got catfished ok…”
She added: “To clarify, I did research my artist before I booked in with him, my friends have some amazing tattoos from him.”
As they took in the two images side by side, Ellie’s social media followers agreed that it was far from ok.
