Where did the devious lick TikTok trend start?
Devious lick started back in early September and it’s all down to @dtx.2cent on TikTok. They shared a video where they opened up their school bag and pulled out a hand sanitiser dispenser. The caption on the screen said: “Only a month into school and got this absolute devious lick.” They video gained over seven million views in just two days but it’s unfortunately not available anymore.
Since then, people have been filming the items they’ve stolen from places and posting their devious licks onto TikTok.
