Prankster Warne plans to fool Clarke with tattoo

Melbourne: Shane Warne never misses any opportunity to play pranks with his friends, and this time the Cricket legend's target is pal Michael Clarke, whom he's planning to fool with a fake tattoo arm.

The former Aussie leg-spinner showed off a brand new arm-length tattoo at a press conference for the Aussie Millions Poker Championship, which he is competing.

Warne first asked reporters if they liked his new body art, and then surprised everybody by rolling down the fake tattoo sleeve and pulled it from his arm.

"Gotcha, didn''t I?" the Daily Telegraph quoted him as saying.

The cricketer then explained that he was donning the joke sleeve to trick current Aussie cricket star Michael Clarke, who last month hit the headlines with a huge new tattoo.

Clarke''s new ink shows off a guardian angel sitting on a cross, with the initials of his fiancee Lara Bingle inscribed at the top.

And Warne said that Clarke''s new body art was the perfect opportunity for him to have a bit of fun with a former teammate.

"I keep taking photos and sending them to Michael," said Warne.
