I got a fruit tattoo and it started scabbing – I asked the internet for opinions but now I'm being trolled

A CONCERNED woman took to the internet to ask for advice about her scabbing fruit tattoo, but it totally backfired.

Viewers of her social media video ended up trolling her with spoiling food jokes instead of giving her advice.

The woman who asked for help, Esmee Knight, revealed she had "no idea" what was happening to her new tattoo and asked for someone to "send help."

She then showed her new ink, which appeared to be an orange slice with flowers wrapping the bottom of it, progressively getting brown and bubbly over a six-day period.

"It's not an infection, but it just isn't healing properly?" she questioned in text placed over a video of herself looking perplexed.

"I'm [really] upset because this was my favorite," she added.

"The lining is messed up since it started doing this.

"It's lost so much color in some parts."

While Knight did receive some helpful comments, dozens of users couldn't help but make rotting food jokes about her browning orange slice.

"The fruit went moldy," one person quipped.

"Maybe you should leave the fruit in the fridge," another suggested.

Yet a third sarcastic person wrote: "What do you expect.

"Fruits do go bad pretty easily."

A fourth user suggested that she may be allergic to citrus.


Despite a large number of cheeky remarks,there were some people who genuinely tried helping Knight.

Many told her not to worry about the discoloration and that the tattoo was simply scabbing, while others warned her it looks like an infection.

It turns out the latter response was correct.

In an update to her post in the comment section, Knight wrote that she went back to the doctor who then confirmed it was indeed infected.

In a follow-up video, she said the "sweaty heat" caused the tattoo to become infected, and it wasn't due to poor tattoo care, as many suggested.

And in a third video, she said that she opted to refrain from getting the tattoo touched up, as it was covering another tattoo.

She also said she received colored tattoos prior to and after the one in question, and never had an issue.
