Tattoo artist Dean Gunther posted a video showing a man not happy with his gym workouts and deciding to get a six-pack tattoo.
Have you ever worked out at the gym and wondered if the hard work is even paying off? Well, you're not alone. One person who worked out regularly at the gym but didn't see the results he desired decided to take matters into his own hands. The person had always wanted a sculpted six-pack look but his workout just wasn't cutting it. He was disappointed to not see the results reflected in his body so decided to get a tattoo showing a six-pack instead. Tattoo artist Dean Gunther (@dean.gunther) shared the video and it went viral immediately. "How to get a 6-pack in two days! You tattoo it! My bro was tired of spending hours in the gym, so I gave him a 6-pack tattoo, ready for summer. Enjoy," Gunther captioned the video. Within a week of posting, the videos notched up 83,500 likes and 1.6 million views.
The 21-second video showed the man trying to work out and being disappointed with the results. He then approaches Gunther with the hope of chiseling a six-pack into his belly, reported Comicsands. "He came to me for help," read the on-screen text. He showed a picture of a man with a six-pack on his phone and asked Gunther to replicate that. The tattoo artist shook his hand and got to work. Gunther first sketched out an outline with before proceeding to draw the six-pack. The video cut to the final work. The man lifted his shirt and showed a sculpted six-pack drawn into his body. "Summer ready," wrote Gunther.
When someone questioned if the tattoo was fake, Gunther posted a second video showing him actually working on the man's body and creating the six-pack. The video shows the man lying on the tattoo table while Gunther went about his work. The video ends with the man showing the finished product. "Mr. Olympia, here we come," read the on-screen text. Gunther spoke to The Sun and said he was really excited about doing the tattoo. "I had seen really bad ones attempted before. Because I specialize in color realism I wanted to give it a go. I thought it would be funny as hell," said Gunther.
People couldn't get enough of the tattoo, with some having a laugh at it. "Man used a cheat code," wrote one person. "The detail in the tattoo is amazing! I’ll give you that but he’s deffo going to regret that," added another user. "There ain’t no way, truly up there as one of the worst tattoo decisions I’ve ever seen," another commented. Another person questioned the man's work ethic. "He did not struggle for years to get a six-pack or he'd have one😂," to which Gunther philosophically replied, "😂😂😂ppl struggle their whole lives."
"I hope that’s not permanent for his sake," wrote one person. "There are bad ideas and then there are BAD ideas…" commented another user. One person wondered what would happen if his gym work actually paid off. "What happens when he decides to get real abs? Will the tattoo and the real abs align and be more pronounced?" they asked. While everyone lauded the tattoo artist, some argued he got the color scheme wrong as it did not match the rest of his body. "If he colored the rest in the same color you literally couldn't tell 🤣."
