Internet users have been left divided by a new trend which sees people get 'permanent freckles' tattooed all over their nose and cheeks.
Freckles seem to be like marmite - you either love them (usually if you haven't got them), or you hate them (usually if you have).
I only get freckles in the sun, and I love it when they make an appearance, but I've also known some much more naturally freckly people who wish they weren't so prominent.
A lot of people would give anything to have the smattering of marks across their face - including, apparently, their money, time, and natural appearances.
Daisy Lovesick, a tattoo artist on TikTok, has recently been showing off a lot of face tattoos on customers who have gone under the needle to make it look like they're covered in freckles, with customers opting for various styles depending on their personal preferences.
One person chose to get spots of ink in a colour carefully chosen to match their own colourings, while another went for a zanier style with multicoloured freckles interspersed with small stars and other drawings.
A lot of people love the designs, with one person commenting: "I want this done in purples and blues, sooo badly."
While another wrote: "I love rainbow freckles."
Not everyone is on board with the trend, though, with some arguing the freckles 'ruin' the customers' natural look. Not that it should matter to anyone but the customer, but people will always have their say when given the chance.
"Just because you can doesn’t mean you should," one critical comment read, while another added: "I look forward to the removal video in a few years."
One viewer admitted that while they wouldn't jump on the trend themselves, they still loved the finished result: "Would I get this in my face? No. Is it so damn cute? Yes, yes it is!!!"
Lovesick has been praised for her talents with the freckly artwork, and in one of her videos the tattoo artist explained that she used 'natural freckles' as a 'jumping off point' to inspire her artwork on one of her customers.
She also shows customers her plans for the ink before making it permanent, making the process as 'interactive as it can possibly be'.
Even when the ink is done, Lovesick explained that the colour of the freckles will continue to 'calm down' by about '50 percent' over time.
