54 is Always Better Than 3
The 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.
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.
