TikToker is shocked after finding out the meaning of her tattoo

A woman has taken to TikTok to share the hilarious moment she realised that her pineapple tattoo had a hidden meaning after being asked if she knew what it meant in some circles.

Brittany Lewin from Queensland, who goes by @b_brittanylewin on the app, shared a text conversation between herself and a friend with the caption, "When you know you've made a mistake."

"Is that an upside-down pineapple???" her friend asked, referencing her tattoo.

"Hahaha not when my arm is down," Brittany responded, sharing a snap of the pineapple tattoo the right way up on her wrist.


"It's still gonna make me giggle, I only just found out what an upside-down pineapple means bahahaha," her friend said.

"Wait what????" Brittany responded, surprised. "Googling haha."

She then shared video of what the Google results showed, revealing that upside-down pineapples are "a secret sign used by swingers to identify each other in public".

"An upside-down pineapple means that a person is in search of a swinger party," the Google result shared.

Brittany was in hysterics, writing, "Besties!! I post stories daily with my arm like this..." showing that the tattoo appears to be upside-down.

And it seems her followers knew what it meant, but never said anything with one user writing, "I’ve thought this every video I’ve seen of you. I just thought each to their own."

"Yep, every time I saw it I was thinking to myself 'does she know?'" another wrote.

"I always thought you and James were just into some extra fun stuff lol," a third added. "I'm sad that you didn't actually know."

"Nothing wrong with that, it's a sign, go have a good time!" someone else wrote jokingly.

"I've always giggled at your pineapple tattoo," another said.

Others described it as "freakin hilarious" while others simply commented with laughing emojis.

Another user shared that she had the same tattoo and didn't know either, "Not mine being 3 times the size of yours 😅😅 same arm same area. I know NOW but I don't care."
