Starred
for life
TEENAGER Kimberley Vlaminck shows the 56 stars she claims were mistakenly tattooed on her face - after asking for just THREE.

The 18-year-old blamed a language mix-up after she fell asleep in Rouslan Toumaniantz's chair.
Kimberley faces a 9,000 bill for corrective surgery in Courtrai, Belgium - and moaned: "I look like a bloody freak."



Romanian Toumaniantz, 37 - who is adorned with tattoos, piercings and rings - claims she was awake throughout and complained only after her dad and boyfriend threw a fit.
He said: "She looked in the mirror several times. She asked for 56 stars and that's what she got."

HAHAHAHA! She's 18 so perhaps in Belgium that's a legal drinking age and she could claim "I was really really trashed." But still, how do you try to make this the tattoo artist's fault? Like she pased out in the chair and he thought, "Hey, ya know what'd be really funny? Ruining my career!"

It's entirely plausible to fall asleep while someone is repeatedly sticking a needle into your face. Happens to me all the time.

So which three did she want?

What language does 3 and 56 sound the same?

Just looking at her face, there was only one way she slept through that. Well, two maybe. 1. Copious amounts of narcotics/booze. 2. Went into shock from the pain. Besides, don't they do a process like draw out a stencil, show the stencil to the customer, apply the stencil, show the applied stencil to customer, then start inking?

I believe her face know holds a coded key that when properly understood will reveal a 4th dimension and allow us to see the doorway to a 5th .

What the fuck is wrong with people? How the hell can you not tell the difference between 3 and 56 when it's being POKED INTO YOUR FACE? Did she not think, "gee this is taking a fucking long tome for 3 stars" at any point during the procedure?

I was getting help from coworkers on jobs still available to her. We stopped at carny/circus, dancing of some sort, and perhaps McDonalds (though I don't think they'd hire someone with that on their face).

Am I the only one who thinks it doesn't look half-bad? Though, it would have been better if the stars were different colors. It does sort of look like some kind of skin disorder... but that could just be because it's still fresh.

Face tats are always dangerous, though. You'd better be DAMNED sure that you don't make a fucking idiot out of yourself. It's one thing to have a permanent image on your face, but it's another thing entirely if you go "Hmmm... you know, that could have been an inch to the left..." right afterwards.

Look at this guy:

http://www.instablogsimages.com/images/2008/01/28/face-tattoo1_5906.jpg

Fucking retarded? Maybe. I still say it looks kinda cool, and more importantly, the guy obviously likes it, or else he wouldn't have gotten all of them. These days it doesn't even matter how fucking retarded you look. If you like it, then nobody else will matter. If you run around trying to hide your face, then yeah, people will jump on that insecurity like a dog on a person's leg.

However, when you look closer, you'll see things like a swastika amongst the sea of ink. Something like generic stars won't change their meaning to you pretty much no matter what happens in your life. But a swastika? Well, one day you'll turn 25 and realize you've done fuck all with your life and blame it on people who worked their asses off to get to where they are (cuz you're too much of a pussy to go to Harlem and start mouthing off to the residents there, so you go to your local suburbs instead) and decide that it's time to change. Oops, you can't. If you're very lucky, you might be able to get that tattoo spliced into another one and hopefully people won't notice that it used to be a swastika. Good luck with that, though.

Long story short: I don't think she looks that bad. I'm liking tattoos more and more, though, and have wanted to get one for years now, but just don't know what to get. I definitely won't go to the tattoo parlour and just say "GIVE ME 56 STARS ON MY FACE LOL" though.

Why 56?

Every tat I have, tattooist draws them on you first and asks is that OK. Plus I saw the tattooist on TV here he speaks English fine. Also if you wanted 3 of something and you have trouble communicating would you not maybe hold up 3 fingers to designate 3? She is at it.

Certainly not fucking dutch or french, thats for sure. (not sure which part she got them in).

What an idiot. I love that she only complained after her dad threw a fit.

that's makeup.

it's from a MAC cosmetics collection a while back.

anyway... the chick in the OP looks like a cosmic dalmatian.

you've gotta wonder how the tats will look when these people age and have wrinkles and sagging jowls.

18 yr old kid had a stupid idea, seemed like a good one at the time, until the tattoo artist was done and she looked in the mirr0r.

instead of owning her stupidity towards her parents she rather fucked over the tattoo artist.

happens a lot of times.

I agree her tatts look cool, actually. However, it looks cool to do with henna or marker, not with something that 20 years from now will seriously hinder from pass the bar and joining a law firm (or whatever she wants to do, as I said - carny).

And that enigma guy (the one with the jigsaw tattoo) is fucking insane. I love him. Is this now the waaay too many tatts thread?

Its a bit disturbing to see people go to those kind of lengths, but at the same time I think people can do whatever they want to express themselves. At the end of the day, they have to live with them.

Speaking of too many Tattoos--25 Ta Life Singer Rick Ta Life is a prime example. As if this wasn't already way over the top:

After being jumped and severely beaten, Rick lost the dreads and took it a step further:

I feel a little bad shit-talking the guy, as he's never been anything but polite and friendly to me, but shit dude, know when to say when (the saga of Rick Ta Life is pretty interesting. If you have some time to kill, google him and read his tale and his insane ramblings).

What the hell does that even mean? This is his appearance. Would you tell someone they look too groomed or something? Or that they are too bald? He's not experimenting with drugs here. What can possibly happen if he "goes overboard"? Why the fuck should you get to decide what is too much?

I just had flashes of Mike Muir. lol

You're right, I have no room to judge. After all, I have way too many shitty tattoos myself. Still though, after talking to the dude recently, I think now even he regrets it. He had some tough times and went a little off his rocker and acted out. Seriously dude, you need the back-story to understand what I mean.
Either way, he can do what he wants with his body and my opinion of him won't change.

Later dudes.

this just in on a dutch news site: the belgian girl thing was a hoax.

HAHAHAHA! She's 18 so perhaps in Belgium that's a legal drinking age

16 is the legal drinking age and nobody blinks if you're 14+ and having a beer.
But she's not claiming she was trashed.

Lebell: it's not sure yet it's a hoax. There's a lot of conjecture and it rather looks like someone wanted to make sure they have the scoop on the hoax (because being first is more important then being right.)
