    Symbol of love?

    To show his love for his new pup, Mendiola tatted the same symbol onto his bicep, as a sign of solidarity.

    Whoops! Turns out it's a pretty common tattoo on pups that simply means they were neutered.

    Oh well! Makes for a funny story at least!

    Mendiola claims he knew what the tattoo meant all along when talking to Buzzfeed, "we talked to our vet about the tattoo. I knew what it meant." But the internet is not convinced. 

    Mendiola added, "I get to carry my dog with me everywhere I go," he said. "I can just look down and know I have a part of him with me at all times."

    "A lot of people are saying 'I'd do anything for my pet,' but would you?" he asked. "Would you get a neutered sign tattooed on your bicep?"

    Regardless, he had good intentions and even though the tatt is a bit of a fail, it makes one hell of a story!
