Is Tyron Woodley’s tattoo fake?

If we look closely at the tattoo, we can see that the words “I._____ Jake Paul” are inked in a different font, and so is the word “LOVE.”

The ink thickness appears to be different as well, and it is probable that Woodley did not really tattoo the word “love,” but he surely did ink the rest of the tattoo. Tyron later shared a video of him being inked in response to the fans and Dan Hardy.
