It started as a lighthearted moment, Richard Petty signing Bubba Wallace‘s arm this week, and then carried over to social media when Wallace said he’d get the King’s signature tattooed if his tweet received 43,000 retweets.

As the retweets continued, Wallace appeared as if he might back down from his pledge, citing a 24-hour stipulation.

Wallace’s mind appeared to change Thursday morning when he tweeted a tattoo artist.

And with Petty on board, well, why not do it?

But there is one catch. The signature on his arm from the other day won’t be the one that is tattooed on Wallace. But there will be a tattoo coming at some point.
