A man is going viral because he recently got a six pack of abs tattooed on his stomach.

A young man struggling to get toned abs in the gym, but failing miserably, went into a tattoo shop for an ingenious alternative.

His tattoo artist, Dean Gunther, says, “I had seen really bad ones attempted before. Because I specialize in color realism I wanted to give it a go. I thought it would be funny as hell. The client nearly quit one hour into it on the first day but we got there.”

The toned, tanned abdomen looks realistic, but you can tell it’s not real from a mile away. Still, it’s bound to draw attention at the beach, and it beats suffering in the gym for an actual six-pack.
