Fans are calling Tyron Woodley’s tattoo fake

Even though Woodley shared a photo on his Instagram, many people were quick to say that the tattoo was fake and wasn’t inked permanently. One of those people was former UFC fighter, Dan Hardy, saying Woodley drew it with a pen.

Woodley took no time in replying to everyone who was doubting whether he got the tattoo by posting a video on Twitter. The video showed “The Chosen One” getting his left middle finger inked.


Dan Hardy was quick to respond to the video posted by Woodley. He wrote, So you left out the ‘LOVE’ part, and that’s written in pen? Well played. It looks like a tattoo your friend did when you were both drunk. An embarrassing tattoo is one thing, but a bad embarrassing tattoo is a whole other.”
