If you’re DJ Laura Lux, all it takes is a dare from a cheeky friend, and a little love on social media.
“I had been posting Harambe memes nonstop,” she said, “and my friend dared me to get a tattoo of him, so I said if I got 2,000 retweets, I would.”
2k retweets and i'll get 'rip harambe' tattooed this week

Based on Lux’s own account of the dare turned bet, it sounds like this was a bet she was happy to lose.
“I got my other friends with big accounts to push it too,” said Lux. “It hit the mark pretty quickly… No regrets at all.”
The post quickly gained traction, and off to the tattoo parlor Lux went.
Some are mocking her new body art.
But others support her wholeheartedly.
this is amazing 😍🔥

And it looks like she’s not the only one with a Harambe tattoo.
