In an extraordinary display of devotion to the beloved animated film series "Shrek", a fan has taken her admiration to a permanent level by getting a unique tattoo.
The tattoo is not just any ordinary ink art; it is a scannable Spotify code for the song "All Star" by Smash Mouth, famously featured in the movie's opening scene.
Who's the "All Star" Fan?
The fan, Tymarah Emily, a 23-year-old eyelash technician, made this spontaneous decision at her friend's tattoo studio. This creative tattoo journey was shared on TikTok, captivating the platform's audience. The series of clips showcased Tymarah undergoing various stages of the tattoo process, from the initial stencil to the needlework, and finally, to the exciting moment of testing the tattoo's functionality.
What Does the Spotify-Barcode Tattoo Do?
To the delight of many, the tattoo proved to be functional. Strategically placed on the back of her left arm, the Spotify code successfully plays the iconic "All Star" song when scanned. Tymarah's enthusiasm is evident in her own words overlaying the video, where she humorously claims to have made the best decision of her life.
The idea for this unique tattoo stemmed from an ongoing joke among Tymarah and her friends, combined with her genuine love for the "Shrek" series and the song "All Star". The execution of this idea was possible thanks to her friend, a talented tattoo artist who runs her own shop and is known for her exceptional work. The concept transitioned from a humorous suggestion to reality during a session for another arm tattoo. After completing the forearm tattoo, Tymarah and her friend decided to bring the Spotify code tattoo to life, ensuring its functionality before the final inking.
This unconventional tattoo has not only demonstrated Tymarah's creativity and love for "Shrek", but it has also garnered significant attention online. Since its posting, the TikTok video has amassed over 5 million views and received more than 300,000 likes. The tattoo has sparked a wave of reactions from thousands of viewers, ranging from admiration of the artist's precision and the innovative idea to humorous concerns about the longevity of Spotify's servers.
