Freaky Facettoo Fails

Kimberley Vlaminck Sues Tattoo Artist for 56-Star Mistake

— June 18, 2009 — Unique
18-year-old Belgium native Kimberley Vlaminck is suing her tattoo artist Rouslan Toumaniantz for £10,000 after he tattooed 56 stars on her face when she allegedly only asked for three.

Kimberley Vlaminck says that she fell asleep during the tattoo procedure and woke up too late; Rouslan Toumaniantz maintains that Vlaminck asked for and accepted the unusual facial tattoo and remained awake throughout the process.

Although Rouslan Toumaniantz does not admit guilt, he has offered to pay for half the cost of laser removal for the 53 unwanted star tattoos on Kimberley Vlaminck's face. Here's more on this unusual story from the Daily Mail:

Toumaintz, who runs the tattoo parlour called The Tattoo Box in Courtrai, said Kimberley was awake and actually looked in the mirror several times during the procedure to see how it was going.

He said she knew 'exactly what she wanted'.

'The trouble all started when she went home and her father and boyfriend threw a fit.

'They are saying things now like I doped her or hypnotised her. What rubbish!

'She asked for 56 stars and that’s what she got.'
