'The Dress' Tattoo May Have Actually Happened

Early on Saturday, rumours of possibly the worst tattoo in recent times spread online...

Yup, that's a tattoo the 'The Dress'.

(In the unlikely event you need an explainer of what 'The Dress' is, click here)

Naturally, humanity collectively despaired.

While the authenticity of the tattoo is still open to debate, someone has appeared to have owned up to it.

And the tatoo artist he credits also appears to back the story up.
