Teen gets McDonald’s receipt tattooed on arm

(CNN) — It’s not uncommon for people to ask for a receipt when they buy food at McDonalds, but one teenager took his receipt to the extreme and made it a permanent part of his body.

It’s a meal this Norwegian teenager will never forget.

The receipt from McDonald’s is tattooed on his right forearm, right down to the cheeseburgers and those special toppings he probably would have skipped if he’d known they would be painfully added to his tattooed tab.

Stian Ytterdahl’s friends egged him on. He told the Norwegian newspaper Romerikes Blaad that as punishment for having too much luck with the ladies, he had to choose between a Barbie tattoo on his butt or the McDonald’s receipt on his arm.

The shop that inked this normally does images of pinup girls or pandas. They call the receipt the weirdest one they’ve ever done and say Stian has agreed to come back to get the tattoo shop’s receipt tattooed free of charge on his left arm.

McDonald’s of Norway tells CNN this was “not a marketing stunt, and not an employee! A very loyal customer!”

Stian says he’s now a living billboard, conceding it may not be as fun when he’s 50- or 60 years old.
