AS any tattoo fan will know, having an inking requires an area of skin that is hair-free.
But one man was left fuming after having his forearm shaved ahead of a new tattoo, only to find that the lack of hair made him resemble an alpaca.
Dakota Weik took to TikTok to bemoan his situation, explaining in a video on the social media site: "The worst part of getting a tattoo is that they have to shave the section that they’re tattooing.
"So now, for the next two weeks, my arm looks like a f**king alpaca leg."
"This looks so dumb lmfao," he wrote over the video, which he captioned, "Emperors new arm".
Viewers were quick to mock Dakota's new look, with one writing in the comments section: "A dogs leg after going to the vet and needing surgery."

While another wrote: "The sound of the HAH! that just came out of me was something else."
