’16 & Pregnant’ Star Nikkole Paulun Gets Tattoo in Exchange for Free Tanning [PHOTO]


Here’s something you don’t see every day: Former ’16 & Pregnant’ star Nikkole Paulun has just gotten a tattoo of a tanning salon’s logo on her upper thigh in exchange for a lifetime of free tanning from the business. Well, then.

Taking to Twitter yesterday, May 6, the reality star posted a snap of her new ink, writing:

She also Instagrammed the same shot, captioning the photo: “Yup I did it! Negative comments welcome but be warned, I do NOT care what anyone thinks.” It’s awesome that she has that kind of confidence, because she’s already received tons of backlash for the ink.

The tanning company in question — now branded on Paulun’s skin for life — is Electrik Beach Tanning in Michigan, and they are offering the same promotion to anyone: a free tattoo in order to get what is essentially a lifetime supply of free tanning. Oh, and the lucky “lifers” get some extra swag, as well.

“We got free t-shirts and lotions and stuff too,” Paulun told Starcasm.

She also elaborated about the body art, noting: “You can’t see it unless I’m in undies. It’s only 2 x 2 inches.”

Paulun appeared on the show’s second season and is the mom of Lyle, 4. You can see the full shot of her tattoo on the Electrik Beach Facebook page here.
