He has gained 1.6million likes on his account as he continues to post a new design every day – which he has inked with a tattoo machine he bought on Amazon.

So far, he has revealed he has permanently inked mistletoe, the Grinch, a penguin and a snowman – but viewers can't believe he was doing it himself.
