Mario Falcone is no stranger to tattoos... but his latest one is certainly different!

The ex-TOWIE star will be in London on Wednesday (8 June) to have a Facebook user's profile picture inked on his body today as part of TruTV show Ink Master Redemption.

Why, you ask?

Well, we're not too sure!

Mario tweeted recently that he was looking for volunteers who wanted their profile picture tattooed on his body as part of this TV show, but didn't give any details about why he was getting involved in the challenge - or why he was willing to have a stranger's photo on his body!

Meanwhile, Tru TV said: "We're going to transform him into the world's first inked-by-numbers human canvas!"

The winner was Gemma Hosking, who was RT-ed by Mario when she shared the message she received from TruTV about her image being used as part of a design on Mario's body.

We can't wait to see the final design!

Ink Master Redemption on truTV from Friday 10th June at 10:20pm, rolling out every Friday after that at 9pm.
