A man on TikTok has shared a video of his four-year-old daughter getting her 'first tattoo' - and people are stunned.

The TikToker, who is a tattoo artist himself, shared the clip on his social media - but it's not all it seems. You can watch the clip below:

Captioning the clip, @wesley.arts explained: "Did my daughter's first tattoo".

In the video, the little one can be seen sitting in the studio chair, laughing along as her dad created the artwork on her arm.

The 'tattoo', which appeared to be of the cartoon My Little Pony, was then wrapped in cling film.

But despite causing some confusion on TikTok, viewers were quick to point out that the tat wasn't actually real and was in fact just the stencil.

In a real tattoo session, the artist uses a hand held machine to insert tiny ink droplets into the skin.

However, in the clip shared by @wesley.arts, many explained that the 'tattoo' is temporary and can be removed.

One person wrote: "It’s the stencil it comes off with alcohol," while another said: "If you look he isn’t touching her skin he is pretending, this is so cute."

And a third added: "Aw this is so cute. He even pretended to use ink... that baby looks so excited."

Meanwhile, a fourth commented: "You can literally see the needle ain't touching her its a joke yall."

Others pointed out that if the tattoo had been real, the little girl would have probably been rather upset.

"Y’all if it was real she would’ve been screaming," added another.

While a second said: "Y’all really asking if it’s a real tat and she’s showing no reaction."

And a third wrote: "Everyone thinking it’s a real tattoo must of never gotten a tattoo before."

Another explained: "It’s the stencil the purple part it comes off with alcohol and he’s pretending to put the needle on her."

Despite the tat not being real, it didn't stop some followers being outraged over the video, after assuming the artwork had been created with a real needle.

In the UK, you must be at least 18 years old before you can have a tattoo and as an artist, it is illegal to tattoo anyone under the age of 18 - even with parental consent.

In the US, the minimum age requirement to get a tattoo is also 18.
