Bethenny Frankel jokes she wants 'meaningful' tattoo as she gets Chanel logo drawn on her arm... days after blasting luxury brand for not allowing her in Chicago store

Bethenny Frankel  let her social media followers believe she wanted to take the plunge and get a tattoo that she deemed to be 'meaningful.'

The outing in Long Island, New York comes just days after she blasted Chanel for being 'elitist' after refusing her entry into a store in Chicago without an appointment, which she thinks was due to her being dressed down at the time.

Appearing to troll Chanel, the reality star and entrepreneur made her way to Vibes Ink Tattoo in Riverhead, New York on Sunday, a town situated on the north shore of Long Island, where she got a fake, painted body tattoo.

Opting to document the experience in two TikTok videos, the Skinnygirl mogul set up the clips by standing outside the establishment.

'Come with me to get a tattoo. Let's do this,' she announced off the top, while looking stylish in a form-fitting white tank top, denim skirt, cowboy boots, and a light tan cowboy hat over her long dark locks.

From there, Frankel walks into the shoppe and rings the front desk bell and is greeted by the co-owner Janita, who runs the shoppe with her husband and lead artist, Taboo.

They proceed to walk past several customers and tattoo artists in the front room, and again in the second room, until she meets up with Taboo, another artist Emma, and then Taboo and Janita's son, who also works at the family-owned business.

'Family business: husband, wife and son... respect,' Frankel, 53, shared in a selfie shot that showed her standing in front of the third room where she's will momentarily get her tattoo done.

She then shows her viewers various shots of the different artists at work on their clients.

Eventually, The Real Housewives Of New York alum sits down for her consultation with Taboo, and tells him: 'I want something meaningful.'

The owner and artist asks her where she's planning to have the body ink done on her body, which she quickly answers by tapping on her right upper arm.

Taboo reassures Frankel with a little theatrics by pulling on one of his latex gloves to make a sound and then tells her: 'I got you.'

As the work begins to grab all the essentials out of the shelves and on to his work table, the pair start moving to the groove of the hip-hop music being played in the shoppe's sound system.

There's also a close-up look at Taboo appearing to get his gear, including what looked like a tattoo gun, along with black ink into small cups.

After all the preparations were done and in order, Taboo asked Frankel, 'You sure about this?' And she didn't hesitate in responding confidently, 'Yes.'

'Come with me to get a tattoo. Let's do this,' she announced off the top, while looking stylish in a form-fitting tank top and light tan cowboy hat over her long dark locks

Taboo proceeded to clean her upper right arm and then began his work on her piece.

Mind you, viewers never get to hear and see the sounds of the device plunging in and out of her skin.

Eventually, Taboo declared, 'That's it we are done,' which prompted the New York City native to thank him and give him a hug, although she doesn't give a look at the finished piece.

The mystery would be answered when Frankel walked out of the Vibes Ink shoppe past her friend, giving a clear and up-close look at the finished temporary tattoo.

One glaring sign that she got a drawn-on tattoo is that there wasn't a bandage with a thin layer of tattoo jelly or moisturizer over the artwork, which is then covered with plastic wrap over the area.

After dropping part two of her Chanel troll on TikTok, many fans and followers couldn't resist commenting on it, with most people praising her for being funny and clever.

'This is hilarious! Girl you had me believing you seriously went to get a tattoo.' one person wrote, while another similarly shared, 'This is HYSTERICAL. Well played.'

Many other users also got in on the joke, writing, 'Omg that's freaking hysterical love it' and 'Just when I think you can't top the last one... well played ma'am, well played.'

After giving thanks and saying her goodbyes, the New York City native plays coy and does reveal what she got tattooed on her arm

Then there were others who weren't completely sure whether this was another of Frankel's antics.

'Wait did u really get a Chanel tattoo I'm dying love,' one person asked, for which a fellow user responded, 'No it's one of her staged acts. He drew it on.'

In the end, Frankel got the Coco Chanel logo painted on her upper right arm, which is 'meaningful' to her because a few days earlier she labeled the brand 'elitist' and 'exclusionary' after not being allowed into that Chicago store without an appointment.

'I didn’t realize we weren't allowed to walk into stores anymore,' Frankel, who wore a white t-shirt, joked in her TikTok video on Wednesday. 'Gotta get a pap smear appointment and all to walk into Chanel. No big deal.'

The Bethenny Ever After star surmised that she wasn't allowed in because she was dressed fashionably down after landing in Chicago and going straight to the area where the store is located without changing into more high-end attire.

Then, the next day, Frankel returned to that same store in a chic, all-black head-to-toe Chanel outfit. And this time, she maintained she got into the establishment without an issue, which her friend documented in another TikTok video.

Frankel shared a video four days earlier blasting Chanel for refusing her entry into a store in Chicago, which she attributes to her being dressed down in the cloths she wore for her flight

'I'm going into Chanel now dressed much differently than I was dressed yesterday. If they let me in because of how I look, Christmas is canceled,' the Skinnygirl mogul said

'No problem today,' she quipped to her camera person, after leaving the boutique.

'Chanel field trip...' she wrote in a text overlay on the clip, shared to both her Instagram and TikTok.

Again, many of her fans were amused by the experiment, with some quoting Julia Roberts' character Vivian Ward from the hit romantic-comedy film Pretty Woman (1990), for which she starred opposite Richard Gere.

In the movie. Roberts returns to a posh boutique on Rodeo Drive a day after being treated dismissively by the sales staff, who judged her appearance.
