The 29-year-old, who has not been named, posted a photo of the tattoo online after drinking two bottles of whiskey, the Kleine Zeitung newspaper reported.

The man also showed the tattoo, which was done by his brother, to a group of military colleagues while drunk on military exercise on September 13, 2019, the newspaper said.
