Jake Paul isn't shy to get a bit of ink on his body and they can either be sentimental odes to inspirations in his life or jokes that aren't even 24 hours old.
But fans reckon one of his tattoos is either mocking or just straight up copying Conor McGregor.
They say imitation is the highest form of flattery and it appears the YouTuber-cum-boxer wants to flatter the UFC fighter a lot.
You can't deny the similarities between Jake's 'Paul' tattoo underneath his belly button and Conor's 'Notorious' tattoo in the exact same place with the same font.
Other fans agree and believe Paul needs to get some originality.
Jake Paul, he has the same tattoo. (It's just his last name instead of Mcgregor obviously) same font and everything lmao- Joey Dodd (@JoeyDodd8) April 23, 2021
Lol nobody is ducking jake paul bro. Jake can't try any harder to be like McGregor. Same kinda tattoo down his back as McGregor and tries to act like McGregor in and out of the ring. He wants to be Conor more than fight Conor lol!- Bifner (@Bifner) December 22, 2020
The YouTuber-cum-boxer was also called out for getting a similar type of tattoo down his spine. Conor McGregor has a Christian cross with a helix spiralling down the middle of his back, while Paul has a sword that plunges downward in the same fashion.
The 24-year-old has been openly calling out The Irishman for a fight for the last few months, all of which have fallen on deaf ears.
Paul originally offered McGregor a whopping $50 million to step into the ring with him and then shortened that to $10,000.
Speaking to The Sun back in May about all the reasons why he would beat Conor, Jake said: "First and foremost I'm a better athlete than McGregor. He never played football, he never played lacrosse, he never wrestled, he was never an All-State football player.
"I'm taller by four inches or so and I'm about 60 pounds, 50 pounds heavier without a weight cut.
"And that's what a lot of people don't understand when I'm hitting these guys - I've got knockout power because I'm cutting down from 210lbs.
"The other side of this is him underestimating me.
"He's going to come into this, be chilling on his yachts, be babysitting his three little kids, be going out to dinners with his wife, playing in the beach in the sand, thinking Jake Paul's a walk in the park.
"When I'm going to be hustling every single day to beat this guy."
This comes after the UFC boss Dana White confirmed that he would not work with either Paul or his brother Logan, who managed to last eight rounds against undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.
