54 is Always Better Than 3

PH1_TATOE_160609_05The UK’s Daily Mail is reporting a truly bizarre incident in a Belgian town named Courtrai. A young woman entered Rousian Toumaniantz’s tattoo parlor (pictured left) and asked for three small star tattoos on the left side of her face. The young lady, Kimberley Vlaeminck, claims she fell asleep during the procedure and upon awakening, found that the tattoo artist had inked 54 stars all over the left side of her face.

18-year-old Vlaeminck (pictured right) is suing Toumaniantz for about $16,500 US dollars after she paid $90 for “graffiti” that she claims ruined her life. Toumaniantz said she asked for that number of stars and was happy with the end product until her father and boyfriend saw the work. That’s when she apparently threw a fit and claimed Toumaniantz went bonkers on her face.vlaminck

It should be noted that Toumaniantz agreed to pay for half of the laser removal costs under the auspice that he wants to satisfy customers and will now require written consent forms prior to tattooing.

What do you think? Did the girl ask for that many stars and flipped her story upon discovering her father and boyfriend’s anger? Or did Toumaniantz go bananas and tattoo the hell out of this girl’s face?

UPDATE: Apparently the girl’s story was a bunch of crap — she fabricated the story after her father disapproved. Thanks for keeping me updated, StuffUnemployedPeopleLike.com.

  1. This was a strange story, although not as strange as that guy’s face.

    I believe the tattoo guy at least thought it was 54. Why would he do that much extra work?

  2. @ Liguid Egg Product I guess the theory would be that is he is mentally ill.

  3. She has finally admitted to lying about it all today…apparently the only tattoos she wasn’t sure about were the ones on her nose.

  4. You’ve got to step up to the plate and take responsibility for yourself. She is 18 year sold. She is a legal adult. She should live with her own decision. And… it sounds like she was satisfied with it until other people saw it. That’s giving in to peer pressure.
