The 'Dance With Me Tonight' star boasted to his Xtra Factor co-host Caroline Flack on Twitter about the unknown applicant's extreme tribute.
Murs wrote: "Hey @carolineflack1 ... With a contestant today... They have just got my name tattooed on foot... #nottellingyouwh[o]."
He then posted a picture of the tattoo, to which Flack replied: "Ha ha!!! They stole my idea....."
Murs recently launched his own new web series titled 'Ollympics', which sees him take on his touring band members in a handful of sport-related challenges.
He also starred alongside fellow X Factor alumni One Direction, JLS and Leona Lewis in a promo video for the new edition of the show released late last month.
