TOMMY Fury has been accused of getting a fake tattoo as a publicity stunt after he didn’t bat an eyelash.
The boxer, who previously refused to get a ‘B’ for Bambi tattoo with Molly-Mae, told fans it was his first time ever getting a tattoo.
The tattoo was part of an interview with Myprotien that took place in a studio in Manchester.
“I never thought I’d see myself in a tattoo parlor, but I guess we’re here,” Tommy said as he nervously entered.
When asked if he had ever been tempted to get a tattoo in the past, he replied: “No, never, I don’t know what’s wrong with me but I’m here and about to get a tattoo .”
Explaining his opinion on Molly’s matching tattoo suggestion, Tommy said: “I’ll be honest with you, I broke up straight away. I just never thought I would get a tattoo.”
He joked that he would have to wait until Molly had a few glasses of wine before he could show her his new ink.
Tommy was asked to fill out a disclaimer form, which he seemed a little worried about.
In the tattoo parlor there were designs designed especially for Tommy, including one of Molly’s cuddly elephants, Ellie Belly.
“Who do you think will get the biggest reaction?” Your father or Molly-Mae?” He was asked.
“I think just because it’s my dad and everyone knows my dad, he’s going to get the biggest reaction. But I don’t think Molly will be particularly happy.”
While the tattoo was being done, Tommy talked about his grueling workout routine.
He said he only sees Molly and Bambi on weekends after he takes a break from normal life and prioritizes training.
Of YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul, he said: “Everyone was like, ‘Oh, if Jake Paul loses he’s done,’ but not really because these guys aren’t trying to win world titles, these guys are just in viewership interested.” and pay-per-view buys.
“They have no interest in winning,” he added.
He said that if he “takes out” Jake Paul or KSI, they would “release another song or do another podcast.”
“While fighting is in my blood, it’s been running through my veins for generations, that’s all we’ve done.”
Tommy didn’t bat an eyelid when he got a tattoo – which is unusual.
He also lay on his stomach and propped himself up on his elbows, which would have made tattooing his back nearly impossible.
As he examined his new “body art” in the mirror, he said, “Oh my God.
“You know what, it’s not terrible, I think my dad will approve, I guess we’ll have to wait and see, but it’s not as bad as I thought.”
“You know what, honestly it didn’t hurt that much,” he added.
But fans weren’t convinced and one wrote: “There’s no way he’s tattooing leaning on his elbows!” they said.
“As if!!!” another added.
“A tattoo gun that doesn’t make noise…” read a third comment on Myprotein’s YouTube video.
“Fake,” wrote a few others.
But some seemed convinced it was real, with one viewer writing: “Is it the myprotein logo??? Why would he get that logo tattooed on his back?”
“That sucks. Tattoos are supposed to have a meaning. Not to print advertising on your skin for a lifetime.”
The video can only be found on the brand’s Instagram page, Tommy hasn’t shared anything on his social media.
