The Norwegian teenager who became an Internet sensation by getting a McDonald's receipt tattooed on his right arm now has had the receipt for the tattoo placed on his left arm, too.

The teen, "Yolo" Stian Ytterdah, 18, shared a picture of him getting the new tattoo and the final result on his Facebook page.


The Norwegian newspaper VG
filmed Ytterdah's tattoo process at the Sabel Ink studio on Tuesday. The youth told Romerikes Blad, another newspaper, that the McDonald's tattoo started out as a joke, according to ABC News.

"Now I'm a living billboard, but I think it's all just fun," Ytterdah said. "Maybe it won't be as fun when I'm 50 or 60 years old, but that's my choice."

Romerikes Blad reported that McDonald's Norway communications director Margaret Brusletto said they had not heard about the tattoo.

"What we have heard previously, is that people who have worked a long time at the company has chosen tattooing the logo on their body, but this is a very special story," said Brusletto, adding that the tattoo was not a publicity stunt by the burger chain. "I cannot say that I think anything other than that this is terrific. This is a loyal customer."

Ytterdah told Romerikes Blad that he has received inquiries from media outlets all over the world about his tattoo, estimating that he has gotten more than 1,000 calls.

"I just think it is cool that the tattoo gets attention from all over the world," he told the newspaper.

Not all the responses have been positive. In a London Daily Mail story titled "McStupid supersized," the teen said he received an angry email from his father.

"What on earth have you done," his father's email said. "Your mother has had a breakdown."
