Well a young lady who claims to have tested positive for HIV has resorted to a rather weird means of notifying men of her status.

The lady identified on twitter as @KatieKleinxo has tattooed the word HIV boldly on her groin.

She posted photos of her tattooed body on twitter with a caption: “Fuck it might as well get a tattoo now since I have the shit... recently found out I’m HIV positive sorry to everyone affected by this.”
