If Ryan Reynolds didn’t know who his most devoted fan was before, he sure does now.
On Thursday, the actor happened upon a tweet sent by a die-hard “Deadpool” fan back in March. But it wasn’t any old fanboy tweet.
The tweet included a picture of the name “RYAN REYNOLDS” tattooed on the fan’s bare butt, printed in black and red with Comic Sans font.

That butt belongs to 18-year-old Dustin, who spoke with The Huffington Post on the condition that his last name, unlike his rear end, be censored.
“As some who’s interested in pursuing acting as a career, Ryan Reynolds happens to be quite the inspiration of mine,” Dustin told HuffPost. “I think he’s an incredibly versatile and well-rounded actor and I hope I can get to that point one day as well. Not to mention, he’s just a great dude; he’s selfless, passionate, and hilarious.”
When Reynolds’ saw Dustin’s booty-ful tribute on Thursday, he reacted the way any mature person would ― with horror.
Oh god. Oh. Dear. God. What have you done!? Thankfully, all the letters in my name are silent. https://t.co/Tf1E6BfBcC— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) April 20, 2017
This butt tattoo story began in early March when Dustin first proposed his idea.
Replying to one of Reynolds’ tweets, Dustin wrote, “if you like this i’ll tattoo your name on my butt.”
True to his Wade Wilson character, Reynolds read the tweet and tapped the “like” button.
“I honestly wasn’t too surprised that he liked my original tweet because I’ve noticed that he likes fan’s tweets sometimes,” Dustin told HuffPost.

With the actor’s blessing, Dustin had to reckon with the idea of a brand new tattoo and the people of Twitter didn’t fail him.
“After he liked my tweet people were tweeting me, not believing that I would actually do it,” Dustin said. “So naturally, I had to.”
Dustin even reached out to his followers to choose what type of font should forever mark his body. They chose Comic Sans because “it’s the only way you can truly capture [Ryan Reynolds’] essence.”
Then Dustin took his request to tattoo artist Chris Bath at Cherry Hill Tattoo in Naples, Florida, and followed through with his pledge.
Dustin’s Twitter picture, appropriately captioned “your wish is my command,” marks the end of this tattoo tale.
And if you’re curious if Dustin regrets his decision to permanently mark his derrière with Ryan Reynolds’ name, rest assured he’s convinced he made the right decision.
