Offbeat Video

A woman with a bizarre beetle tattoo has showcased her unique design. 

Brazilian tattoo artist, ‘Menace’ aka Tomas Melo has created an entirely pattern, nestling a dung beetle into the crook of his client’s arm. 

In tandem with its owner’s movements, the beetle appears ready to take off when the arm is extended. 

Otherwise, the tattoo, done entirely from dot work remains at rest.  

Designed at the recent Expo Tattoo Floripa, based in Santa Catarina, it’s racked up over 15,000 likes on the artist’s Instagram page.
