Yesterday, a British teenager called Liam Scott went pretty viral for apparently getting "SKEPTA" tattooed on his hip while on vacation in Magaluf, Majorca. Scott tweeted several photos of the alleged tattoo—along with a brief clip that appears to show him being inked, "for the doubters"—to Skepta himself (above). He also shared a screenshot of texts from his girlfriend Lauren, who told him their relationship is over thanks to his, in her words, "fucking embarrassing" taste in body art.
The immortal question "What you saying @Skepta" posed in Scott's tweet was left hanging until this morning, when Skepta himself recognised the furore with a kind reply: "At least now you know Lauren's love weren't real, how can she finish it over a tattoo? Smh. Plenty more fish in the sea bro." Too right.
