She feels like a real bonehead.
A TikToker has gone viral for not being able to get a temporary skeleton tattoo off of her face after Halloween.
Elizabeth Rose, 46, posted a video of just how spooked she was that her skeleton facial tattoo wouldn’t come off, despite nearly scrubbing her face to the bone.
“I put a tattoo sticker on,” she began in the clip, which amassed 1.4 million views. “I put some on my granddaughter as well, she’s 7, and my daughter rings up going, ‘Has it come off?’ Well, it can’t be that difficult, surely?”
First, she took a cotton round to her face and attempted to wipe off the tattoo, then tried to use her fingers and really scrub, to no avail.
“For f–ks sake,” she said with a chuckle of disbelief. “I’ve got meetings tomorrow.”
Users in the comments suggested baby oil, rubbing alcohol and even nail polish remover to remove the tattoo.
“Anything alcohol-based, hand sanitizer, rubbing alcohol.. or you could just drink it and forget all the tattoo,” quipped one person.
“Use tape stick it to you and it rips it right off,” someone else suggested.
“Use micellar water. I have had the same problem tonight with my son,” another wrote.
“Baby oil got my daughter’s off,” one user said.
In the following clip, the Tiktoker revealed her clean face, saying she managed to remove the entire fake tattoo by using Garnier’s water cleanser.
“I literally look like I’ve been slapped in the face 10 times by Will Smith,” she joked, referencing her very red and irritated skin.
Her unfortunate debacle with the face tattoo resulted in people wanting to see just how effective other methods of removing temporary tattoos are, so the user tested them.
She applied another tattoo — now that she knows how to remove it — to test her viewers’ suggestions of hand sanitizer, olive oil, packing tape, nail polish remover, Sellotape and vodka.
First, she used the packing tape, realizing it would have worked like a charm. She just stuck and peeled the tape on her skin over and over again, and each time it lifted the section of the tattoo entirely.
“Are you f–king kidding me?” she exclaimed.
She stated she’ll “never” try nail polish remover again after testing that method because it was “vile” to use around her mouth and on her face. As for the others, olive oil was “rubbish,” but rubbing alcohol worked a bit better.
