The man behind the social media push to bring In-N-Out to Hanford has now been inked to honor his efforts.

Michael Anthony Lacrue had the restaurant's iconic red palm trees tattooed around both his wrists. Lacrue has been trying to get corporate to bring the restaurant to Hanford for the past 20 years.

Lacrue said if he was ever able to get the location in Hanford -- he would get a tattoo to honor the move. He started the social media campaign called "Bring In-N-Out to Hanford" and earlier this year his efforts paid off.

Construction of the In-N-Out at the corner of 12th and 198 is still ongoing. The restaurant is scheduled to open either in December or January, although In-N-Out will not give an exact date
