A tourist who went viral after showing off her new Arabic tattoo has now responded to those who ridiculed her over its English translation.

Travel TikToker Cait was blown away when the short video showing off her tattoo began to gain attention online, having racked up more than 1.6 million views at the time of writing (7 December).

The vlogger initially explained that she'd got the tattoo in Morocco to match with some new friends she'd made on her travels.

The group decided to get a word written in Arabic, and given the story surrounding the ink you might expect it to have some nice meaning related to travel or friendship.

If you thought that, though, you'd be wrong.

Instead, Cait used Google Lens to translate the word into English, revealing that it reads: "Mayonnaise."

I guess that's still profound, if you're a big fan of mayonnaise?

Needless to say, Cait caught a lot of flack as viewers mocked the tattoo, with many questioning why she got the word 'mayonnaise' in the first place, while others assumed she didn't know what the Arabic word meant when she requested it.

"Check before you put stuff on your body," one person wrote.

After her video went viral, Cait responded to defend her ink and explain that she knew exactly what she was doing when she sat down under the needle.

"Yes, these tattoos were on purpose," she said in a follow-up video.

"The backstory is that me and my friend Jasmine met these two Australian guys in Spain and we decided to follow them out to Morocco.

"We had a fantastic time... So we decided to get a tattoo to commemorate the whole thing."

The group decided on their tattoo while out getting lunch one day, where they discussed 'how beautiful the Arabic language' is.

They pointed out that even the word for mayonnaise 'looks really beautiful written in Arabic', and after it became an 'inside joke' they settled on getting the word permanently inked on their skin.

"All of the locals were dying laughing and they were taking pictures... I hope that answers some of your questions, and just know it's not that serious," Cait concluded.

Viewers have shown their support for Cait after she assured that she was happy with her tattoo, with one writing: "I think the mayo tattoos look so nice bc it’s true it does look pretty written out."

Another fan of the ink wrote: "Proud of you! Everyone needs to follow your account! U deserve the views!"

At the end of the day, Cait's the only one who needs to have an opinion on the tattoo, and she seems pretty happy with the result!
