River Plate fan gets QR code tattoo linked to Copa Lib highlight

Sports fans getting tattoos have offered some good (and very bad) Toe Poke fodder through the years, but here's one we haven't seen before. 

"What am I looking at?," you ask. Well, to commemorate River's historic Copa Libertadores win over Boca Juniors in December of 2018, Fabio Tucznio had a fairly brilliant idea. He had a QR code tattooed on his leg that would make any device go to the highlights of River's 3-1 extra-time victory over arch-rivals Boca that saw them win the trophy 5-3 on aggregate.

This works well for the inked-up fan, because even if his memories of the historic win don't last forever, he'll always know where and how to relive the moment.

However, there was bad news to come for Tucznio --.YouTube has taken down the clip his tattoo links to due to copyright infringement.

According to reports in Argentina, social media users, including many Boca fans, keen to make Tucznio's tattoo meaningless, launched a campaign to report the video to the platform claiming it contained inappropriate content. It has since been removed.

TyC Sport claims that Tucznio was able to upload the video on a "private channel" before it was removed.

If he had to upload the link again, the QR code would be different to the one that he has on his leg.
