Now that's quirky!
Elle Mills, quirky jokester and lover of a kooky jape, has unveiled a brand new tattoo to the world and the reaction has been... mixed.
Elle, who has long been known for her commitment to a gag, posted a picture set of her getting a brand new tattoo, along with the caption: "got a tattoo". What was this tattoo? Why, it was the word "tattoo", printed in Comic Sans (the kookiest font of them all!)
This accompanies an existing tattoo she already had on her other arm which reads "no ragrets".
Some immediately had a strong reaction to the permanent gag.
It's safe to say the tat prompted some swift and strong reactions from the viewing public.
One British user tweeted: "i think collectively as a nation we’ve decided that americans aren’t funny and should not be allowed to make jokes". This accumulated 29,000 likes. When it was pointed out that Elle is not from the US, but is in fact Canadian, this user followed up by simply saying "do i care? no.".

One quote-tweet, which read simply "youtubers are a plague to all things funny", amassed over 177,000 likes and 20,000 retweets in under 24 hours.

But others defended Elle, and saw the fun in the new ink.

This is the most meta thing i've ever seen and this is freaking funny and good. Congrats on your "tattoo", hope it will heal well.— Nigami (@NigamiEstMajeur) February 10, 2019
But, the most important question of all - what do you make of the tattoo? And, ultimately, does it really matter what anyone thinks of it, as long as Elle is happy with it?
It's unknown at this time if it is because of the tattoo tweet, but the timing would seem to suggest that.
