    Lux told BuzzFeed the idea came to her after a friend dared her to get the tattoo.

    "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."

    Because of her large following, Lux was "pretty confident it'd happen".

    "I got my other friends with big accounts to push it too. It hit the mark pretty quickly... No regrets at all."

    She has been receiving some criticism, but says "dumb tattoos are fun" because they make her laugh, and "it's not like it's an ex-boyfriend's name".

    "It's so funny to me that people even make a big deal out of this kind of thing," she said. "I'm already covered in tattoos and most of them don't really mean shit."
