A teenage girl is suing a tattoo artist for £10,000 after she allegedly asked him for three stars on her face - but ended up with 56.
Eighteen-year-old Kimberley Vlaminck paid £55 for 'the graffiti that has ruined my life' in her Belgian home town of Courtrai.
Kimberley says the tattoos have ruined her life She claimed the Romanian tattooist who performed the artwork misunderstood her French and English.
She claims she fell asleep while he was doing his work... and awoke to 'this nightmare'. 'It is terrible for me,' said Kimberley. 'I cannot go out on to the street, I am so embarrassed. I just look horrible.' 'I think he didnt understand what I wanted. He spoke only fractured English and French.
'But I explicitly said in my native tongue, French, and also in a little bit of English when he looked confused, that I wanted three little stars only near my left eye.' Rouslan Toumaniantz, who runs the tattoo parlour called The Tattoo Box in Courtrai, denies her claim. He said she knew 'exactly what she wanted'. He added: 'She was awake and looked into the mirror several times as the procedure was taking place.
'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 thats what she got.' To remove the stars would require surgery costing £8,500. But even the most advanced laser techniques would, while removing the tattoos, leave deep white marks all across Kimberley's face. She has launched legal proceedings against Toumaniantz seeking damages, plus the money for the operation.

Whew. That’s going to leave a mark.
Calling Miss Stew Pid, Miss Stew Pid, pick up the red courtesy phone.
I’ve never gotten a tattoo but I find it hard to beleive she fell asleep during such a painful procecess.
The tattoo guy should be sued.
The bad part of me thinks it is kind of funny. And also a great reason never to get tattoos in the first place.
She fell asleep while letting a communication-challenged, pin-pricking artist have run over her face for all eternity???
Well, this is Europe — maybe she should try to blend in by wearing one of those burkhas that are so popular over there.
Is she actually wearing a ‘sexy’ belt buckle...?
Honey, if you have to tell everyone you’re sexy,.....
How about lots of makeup? Would that work and cancel it out...
Why? She got what she asked for and paid for.
Doesn’t it look as if she has tape on her face where the stars are? Look at the bridge of her nose and at the top edge of the area where the jawline stars are.
I wonder which 3 she wanted to keep?
They gave her a few too many pain pills and probably some valium as well.
Kind of career limiting.
