TOMMY Fury has been accused of getting a fake tattoo as a publicity stunt after not flinching.
The boxer, who has previously refused to get a 'B' for Bambi tattooed with Molly-Mae, told fans he was getting his first-ever inking.
The tattoo was part of an interview with Myprotien, which took place in a studio in Manchester.
"I never thought I'd see myself in a tattoo parlour, but I guess we are here," Tommy said when he nervously entered.
When asked if he had ever been tempted in the past to get a tattoo he replied: "No never, I don't know what's come over me, but I'm here and I'm about to get a tattoo.
Explaining his thoughts on Molly's matching tattoo suggestion, Tommy said: "I'll be honest with you, I shut it down immediately. I just never thought I'd get a tattoo."

He joked that he would need to wait until Molly had a few glasses of wine before showing her his new ink.
Tommy was asked to fill out a disclaimer form, which he appeared to be a little worried about.
Hanging in the tattoo studio were designs that had been especially drawn up for Tommy, including one of Molly's cuddly elephant Ellie Belly.
"Who do you think will have the biggest reaction? Your dad, or Molly-Mae?" he was asked.

"I think just because it's my dad, and everyone knows my dad, he's going to have the biggest reaction. But I don't think Molly's going to be best pleased."
Whilst the tattoo was being done, Tommy spoke about his gruelling training routine.
He said how he only sees Molly and Bambi on weekends after "kissing goodbye" to normal life and prioritising training.
Speaking about YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul he said: "Everyone was saying 'oh when Jake Paul loses he's finished' but not really, because these guys, they're not trying to achieve world titles, all these guys are interested in are viewing figures and pay-per-view buys.
"They're not interested in winning," he added.
He said that when he "knocks" Jake Paul or KSI out, they will "go and release another song or do another podcast."
"Whereas me, fighting is in my blood, it runs through my veins for generations at a time, this is all we've done."
Tommy didn't flinch when he was having the tattoo – which is unusual.
He was also lying on his stomach and resting on his elbows, which would have made tattooing the top of his back nearly impossible.
As he checked his new 'body art' out in the mirror, he said: "Oh my god.
"Do you know what, it's not terrible, I think my dad will approve, I guess we'll have to wait and see, but it's not as bad as I thought it would be.
"Do you know what, it didn't hurt that much to be honest," he added.
But fans weren't convinced, with one writing: "No way is he tattooing with him leaning on his elbows!" they said.
"As if!!!" another added.
"A tattoo gun that makes no noise…" chimed a third on Myprotein's YouTube video.
"Fake" a few others wrote.
But some seemed convinced that it was real, with one viewer writing: "Is it the Logo of myprotein??? why would you make him tattoo that logo on his back?
