GIRL HAS 56 STARS TATTOOED ON FACE

BRUSSELS – A Belgian teenager is suing a tattoo artist after she allegedly asked for 3 stars on her face, and instead received 56!

Eighteen-year-old Kimberley Vlaminck went to a local parlor called The Tattoo Box, and was given to Romanian tattoo artist Rouslan Toumaniantz. Vlaminck claims that she only asked for three stars to be tattooed on her face. She has stated that he only spoke broken English and French but tried to be clear as possible about what she wanted.

Vlaminck says she then fell asleep during the procedure and awoke to instead find 56 stars across the left side of her face! She is now suing him for $14,000, the cost of the laser surgery she will need to remove the tattoos.

However, Toumaniantz is fighting back, saying that he gave her exactly what she wanted. “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.”

Her story does raise a number of questions. Why did she pay and leave the tattoo parlour without complaining? Why was it not a problem until she arrived at home?

And most confusingly, who is capable of falling asleep while a very tender part of their body is being tattooed?

UPDATE: Toumaniantz, seen here:

has agreed to pay for half of her laser surgery. While he still stands behind his story, he said, “Kimberley is unhappy and it is not my wish to have an unsatisfied client. There is a way to remove the tattoos with the help of a laser. I accept to pay for half the cost.”

  1. I once fell asleep during a tattoo. I was angry when I woke up. My coffee was cold. I sued the damn tattoo guy for the price of my coffee. Sure the litigation cost me $10 000, but it's the principle of it that counts.

  2. Whats horrible is that this little girl's mistake could very possibly cost the tattoo artist's credibility and reputation. : not amazing.

  3. I hope this girl reads all these posts… claiming someone innocent did that against her will and could also ruin their reputation… Make her keep the stars so we can all point and laugh… karma is a b*tch girl…

  7. 'I find it hard to believe that a tattooist would do something like that against a person's will. '

    Ace- a couple of years ago a young Boca Juniors fan went into a tattoo shop in Buenos Aires to have his team's favourite logo done on his back. He was all up on how great Boca is and how much better they are that cross-town rivals River Plate, so much so that the artist, alas for the kid, happened to be a River fan. What did he do? He tattooed a Boca logo on his back alright- in the shape of a penis! The kid didn't find out until he got home and showed ma and pa his new tattoo.

  9. Tattoos HURT!!! It's bearable pain I'll give you that, but anyone who can sleep through 56 stars being tattooed on their face is obviously taking enough recreational drugs that they deserve what they get! Speaking from personal experience the tat on my back was big enough to keep me awake enough to be well aware when and wear the needle was going… Someone has Daddy Issues?

  10. You cannot fall asleep during a tattoo, especially on your face, you would feel the gun moving to different places and know something was wrong

  12. I have tattoos and there is no way in hell this girl fell asleep, her dad got pissed so she made up this story. The artist should not pay a thing and if anything sue her for defamation.

  13. i think hhe is lyin no one can fall alseep while havin a tattoo esp on the face the tattooist should be suing her. she is nothing but a LYING SILLY LITTLE GIRL

  14. Now I've been under the tatoo needle three times so far. It is a little painful but I have a high tolerance for pain and my tat artist allows me to bring my own cd while being tattooed. The combination of mellow music, the hum of the gun, and laying down for over an hour after working 11 hours lulled me to nearly to sleep.
    However, this girl was supposed to get 3 stars. There is no way she could have possibly fallen asleep in the amount of time it would take to do that. Plus, tattoo artists usually do a transfer before starting the tat and I'm certain it would be done on such a prominent tat. Also, she would have looked in the mirror before leaving and either noticed a buttload of stars or that half her face had been bandaged and known something was up! Not to mention the cost for 56 stars would be significantly higher than for 3 and should've raised an eyebrow. She's just a spoiled little girl who's used to getting her way and she probably will again.

  19. Heres just my question. Theres no way I believe that she could have fallen asleep during such a procedure. What baffles me is how generous this tattoo artist is and seems easily willing to pay $7,000 for her to get them removed. Why would he unless hes rich and extremely nice? Any thoughts on that?

  20. i dont know first i thought she may be lieing but look at the FREAK the gave it to her , i would not dought someone that would do that to their own face would do something like that , he looks like a freak of nature , dont get me wrong she should have known better one alot of level s however again i have trouble with someone that looks like that and then when someone yells he did it i would probably take one look and send him away for almost anything ,,,, what the H e LL is wrong with that guy ,id love to read a report from a schrink about him , id put him somewhere between a freak and a nut case and a total idiot

  21. How in the world do you fall asleep when your face is getting tattoed ? -.-
    and since she said she only asked for three stars to be tattoed , its should not take that long , so i really doubt if she even has time to daydream .

  22. I sooo agree with u! if u know ur parents are gonna freak why do it! dum ass!! Poor Tat artist! bring his name to shame. some should slap her!

  23. This story is hilarious, what a stupid girl. The stars are in the shape of a '3' so maybe that's what she wanted. Next time she should stick to temporary tattoos.

  24. Tattoos are 'white trash art' and anyone who gets it done in the first place should assume all risk. I wouldn't let anybody who looks like that tattoo 'artist' touch any part of my body let alone my face. Let her pay for the whole amount. It'll teach her a lesson.

  25. She of course is lying. how could she have fallen asleep while having a tattoo gun push on her face? even the noise would keep her up because its so close to her ear. the tattoo artist shouldnt of had to pay anything. its what she wanted. why would someone get 56 stars from 3? that was such a lie. its probably because her dad freaked about it.

  26. I'm a tattoo artist myself and i have fallen asleep during sensitive work being done on me so its not so hard to believe that she could have fallen asleep but my question is if her father singed for her to get it done where was he at while it was being done I would never leave my daughter in the care of any tattoo artist that I didn't know I know alot of tattoo artist will try to talk you in to doing more work then you want so if that is the case he is still responsible for the work he did and he should pay for the removal

  27. No way. You don't just fall asleep when your getting tatoos!! they hurt. exspecialy on your face!! im mean seriously?!?! COME ON!

  28. The truth is often stranger than fiction…This artist probably should have turned her down. Most professional artists would not have done this to someone so young.

    Reply
  29. OK, she claims to fall asleep …. possible only if she was intoxicated or drugged and if that was the case she would be constantly moving while he continued drilling into her face as it would be irritating her ( especially at the tip of her nose )even while she slept.
    I think she did it to piss her parents and boyfriend off and then regretted it. The tattooist is so nice to pay half, but seriously there is a technique of bleaching that can make the tattoo fade. He is decent to pay half.

  30. the girl and the tattoo artist and the girl should just get together! they would make a great couple! lol any way her belt buckle says it all sexy (not)! lol oh and chicky doo ur a liar!

  31. There is no way that she fell asleep during her tattoo session. She might of been high not knowing what she was doing at the time. When she sobered up, she realized she made a mistake. And even if the tattoo artist only spoke broked english… there's a big difference between 3 and 56. There is no way she will win this law suit.

  32. I don't know about her story, but everyone is missing the obvious: Wtf was she doing letting that Freakazoid even get near her?! Is it even human?

  33. I Believe the Girl…
    I belive the tattoo shop saw the girl as some ditsy rich girl & wanted to teach her a lesson, because they feel that she wanted some little cute tattoo like every other girl that wants to have a little bit of a rebel in her..

    I have alot of Tattoo's & I end up sleeping through all of them. My Tattooist has told me that my hight threshold of pain is part of it but mostly it is my endorphins kicking in & that it is like a euphoria type reaction that makes me doze off to wonderland….

  34. ( Angry Monkey ) Teach her a lesson, of what not to fall asleep during a tattoo? Get the F/outta here. She wanted a tattoo, rebelled against her parents will. And to the other guy calling the artist a freakazoid, Hands down he's got more bread then you. Girl f/d up, father got mad, GET OVER IT!

    • If it was an accident she would have probably sued for more, but instead she only asked for the cost which probably means she wanted it then regretted it afterwards.

    • Um, why wouldn't she sue for MORE if she was telling the truth. If I went for a chest tattoo, and the artists decided to do my throat or face, I sure as hell wouldn't be suing for just removal. I would be suing for damage, damages, damages.

    • oh shut up ! you're just a stupid as her. Its impossible to fall asleep getting your face tattooed, I know because I have one on my face but the opposite side. And her dad probably told her to sue for that much because he wasnt paying for it, and her dumbass and her boyfriend probably thought of the stupid lie.

    • I think the real question is..if it WAS suppose to be only 3 stars..why isnt she suing for MORE than laser surgery. I sounds to me just like what it said in the article that the trouble didnt start until she got home. She saw it before she left and payed for it. Just seems like since daddy didnt like it she lied and said it wasnt what she asked for and in turn HAD to go through legal action in order to back up that lie. Im sure that was the first thing to enterher fathers mind..legal action.

  36. Kyle, I agree with you: it looks nice !!
    Maybe unusual, but that is what makes it nice.
    Her right side looks rather dull, I think.
    I'd like to see this becoming a fad !

    • I'm 23, make 80grand a year and have an average IQ of a genius. I also have tattoos and I'm pretty sure I'm not an idiot 😀 everyone notices racism but the prejudice has become cultural. If you want to talk about this article and this single soul who's made some bad decisions by all means go for it, but to condemn the entire tattooed world, which is something like a FIFTH of the population, is a little much…

  37. At first I thought – yes, she lied, because her dad was mad, and that only added to her regrets. But the scary-looking tatoo artist is willing to pay half the laser? More torture! Why would she want laser? She is bound to regret that just as much. After my own first look, I now like the 56 stars. Three would have been timid and silly, but 56 is dynamic and bold and fascinating on her pretty face. She should overcome her regret and enjoy her new look. We all know she knew what she was getting, so why the lies and regrets. Each little star deserves a kiss… go with it, girl! After laser, you'll still be miserable and you'll miss those little stars.

  41. I bet u that when she got home her dad told her something about all those tattoos so she made up that story just to get out of it

  42. Dear lord, people actually believe this crap?
    She's obviously lying.
    If she asked for 3 stars, why in the H*ll would that man tattoo 56? He's only getting paid like, what, 40 dollars for the 3 stars, so why would he do a procedure that costs about 1000 dollars for only that 40 dollars?
    Also, asleep for the who procedure? The 3 stars would've taken about 10 minutes, even less. I doubt ANYONE, for the first time getting tattooed, much less in the middle of the day, fall asleep then.
    She's obviously not an adult enough to know some freaking common sense.

  44. How can you sleep getting a tattoo, much less your first tattoo that would only normally take 10-15 min? like seriously, who believes this. i mean i feel for her because i know i wouldnt want to walk aroound with stars all over my face but hey dont lie about it?

  45. I can't believe that people are commenting things like "what a silly girl" and "I respect her choice". She tried to ruin an innocent man's livelihood so that her daddy wouldn't be mad at her. As far as I'm concerned, what she did is no different than falsely accusing someone of rape to escape responsibility for her own decisions. That tattoo artist is a better man than me, because I would've sued her into oblivion.
