"The moment you find out your man has made you his 17th 🧐 tattoo. 🖤🖤🖤@dwyanewademade his best bday surprise for #SouthAfrica WadeWorldTour2022 🌍edition #Capetown Part 4," she wrote on Instagram.

In a video she shared online, Union was filming the reveal of the tattoo when she gasped and shouted, realizing what tattoo he had gotten. 

"The reaction though😍😍😍👏👏," a fan commented.
