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.

Scarred from life: Kimberley Vlaminck shows her tattooed face. The 56 stars will cost £8,500 to remove.

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'.

But today, Rouslan Toumaniantz - himself covered from head to foot in tattoos and piercings - said he would help pay for treatment to remove the tattoos.

'I maintain that she absolutely agreed that I tattoo those 56 stars on the left side of her face,' he told newspaper La Derniere Heure.

'A witness, a woman who was present, has already been questioned by police, and she confirms it.
Denial: Rouslan Toumaniantz, who runs the tattoo parlour, says Kimberley asked for 56 stars

'But be that as it may: 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.'

Rouslan claimed Kimberley was happy with the work when she left his shop in Coutrai but changed her mind when her father saw the stars.

'She's 18 years old, she's an adult,' he said. 'I don't regret it. To tell you the truth, this has given me some publicity.

'It is terrible for me,' said Kimberley yesterday. 'I cannot go out on to the street, I am so embarrassed. I just look horrible.'

'I think he didnít 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, 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 thatís 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 Rouslan seeking damages, plus the money for the operation.

He was questioned by police earlier this year but they decided it was a civil matter and that there was nothing they could do.

Jules Clocher, a Belgian psychologist, said: 'The trauma this girl must be feeling is indescribable. She feels like a circus freak - and no wonder, because she looks like one.'

Rouslan said from now on he will get written consent from clients before he begins tattooing.



Rouslan was quoted:

"I fwear! Na mitch naid nee wanded fify fix nars!"

If that is the tattoo artist then she deserves nothing. Anyone who lets that guy work on them should know better. His lip must weigh five pounds.

Yeah! I can certainly understand the misunderstanding ... "3" sounds so much like "56"! This why AMURICAN should be the language of the world!


Meanwhile, this is the most ridiculous lookin' sumbitch I've ever seen!

Is it really possible to sleep through someone tattooing 56 stars on your face?

No. I doubt that most could even sleep through one.

The fact that the artist is willing to pay anything just screams publicity stunt to me.

I'm sorry, but facial tattoos just aren't a good idea in the first place.

What a freak show. Why would anyone voluntarily want to do this to themselves ? There's so many people disfigured due to birth defects, diseases, etc., and then you have these cretins trying to look like that......... WTF ?

The common sneeze leaves the nose between 200 and 300 mph I am told.
Do not stand next to ol' junkyard face when he has a cold.

I would pay not to see that.

There may have to be some welding to get them apart.

I think that some folks who over do it, so to speak, like said guy in picture, definitely have a psychological issue. While tatoos and piercings have various religious or cultural histories, they are also indicitive of a psychology of self mutilation, defiance, independence or belonging.

To each his own, I guess.

I think it'll be great in 50-60 years when some of these head / face mutilation mutant freaks are old and wrinkled and the art will be incomprhensible due to ink fade / smear and the wrinkle overlap effect. Maybe they'll do piercings thruogh wrinkle folds to help hold them togethor.....

I was behind a guy a month ago at the food store who had really big clear epoxy round ear discs that had real tarantulas cast in the epoxy acrylic whatever it is..... the weird thing was besides those things, nothing, he llooked like Clark Kent..... with big spider ear discs.... now that guy freaked me out.

Whereas I personally don't understand tattoos and piercings of ANY kind, I particularly don't understand those huge ear discs that some people have like the guy pictured above. Any time I see it I get freaked out too!!

One time I had my own experience with a guy with those ear lobe things and I guess he saw me get freaked out. He was trying to convey to me that I wasn't being to "tolerant" of him and his personal expression. It's not that I'm "intolerant" of that sort of thing, but weird piercings totally make me queasy and nauseous, no matter who has it!! (I'm rather the squeamish type )

I really find it hard to imagine the closed mindness that people of today still display...have you read or seen much of other cultures from around the world? Many tribes in Africa have ear spools and lip spools that are huge, many tribes wear piercings in their lips, nose, and other parts of the body, some tribes cut patterns into the skinn with hundreds of cuts and the scars are the result and in many cultures it is a sign of manhood.
there are many many types of body mutilation that different cultures doo just because you do not understand their customs or beliefs does not mean it is meaningless..

Do you think your Christianity ,or catholic beliefs or rituals would not seem strange to them? In alot of cultures a piece of the body is the only real thing you have to offer ..

People these days are in a identity crisis with the world becomeing one big pot of stew people are loosing thier cultural identity and some people just strive for something better or different than the current system.. Remember the reaction to long hair just a few years ago.. i do i thought i might get killed or beat up for it in many southern states in the 60's

Now i agree that many are just copy cats but for many people it is a spiritual journey of self discovery allow them a bit of slack they do have the right to have it their way just as you do the right to have it your way...

Tattoos and piercings have been around alot longer than modern religion alot longer so it is just not this generation doing it..
