Those Revenge Tattoos on 'How Far Is Tattoo Far?' Are Unfortunately Very Real

By Anna Quintana

MTV's latest show is going viral for all the wrong reasons. The premise behind How Far Is Tattoo Far? is pretty simple — do you trust your friend, significant other, or family member to design a tattoo that will be permanently displayed on your body forever? 

So far, there has been a pair of exes who revealed how they really felt about each other (and their private parts) with not-so-subtle tattoos, while Jersey Shore star Angelina Pavernick appeared on the reality series with her fiancé — and decided to pay homage to her "dirty hamster" nickname with the tattoo she chose for her future husband. 

It's no surprise that the over-the-top ink choices have viewers wondering if contestants are in on the joke before the big reveal. 

So, is How Far Is Tattoo Far? real or fake? 

The tattoos are 100 percent real — at least according to the show's hosts Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Nico Tortorella. "We’re really highly emotional. We cried as much as the clients did," Nico told Refinery 29. "We cried every episode." Snooki agreed, adding, "It was so much emotion. It would be like so happy and beautiful to like, ‘Oh my God, how could they do that to each other?’ It was like a roller coaster of emotions."
