Girl Wakes with 53 Unwanted Tattoos


A teenage girl is suing her tattooist she claims tattooed 56 stars on her face after she asked for three.

The girl is suing for over $15,000 in damages for “the graffiti that ruined my life”, after the tattoo artist allegedly thought nothing of giving her eighteen times the tattoos she requested.

The man responsible for the ‘graffiti’, himself covered in tattoos and piercings, insists he only complied with her instructions, and at the reasonable price of $90.



“I maintain that she absolutely agreed that I tattoo those 56 stars on the left side of her face,” he said. A witness to the affair confirms the tattooist’s statement.

The girl is most upset by the tattoos: “It is terrible for me. I cannot go out on to the street, I am so embarrassed. I just look horrible.”

Having no desire to leave a customer unsatisfied, the tattooist has agreed to pay for half the cost of laser removal surgery, though this will still leave the girl with white facial scars on the tattooed areas.

The girl insists for the full cost of the removal, despite the tattooist claiming she was satisfied with the service until she went home to her father and boyfriend. “They are saying things now, like I doped her or hypnotised her. What rubbish!”

Although the tattooist serves customers at a tattoo parlor in Belgium, he is Romanian and is said to have spoken only poor French and English, which may have contributed to the confusion.

“I think he didn’t understand what I wanted,” she said, “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.”


The tattooist argues the girl was awake and checked in a mirror several times to see how the work was progressing.

He has decided from now on to get written consent from customers for any procedure he undertakes, but does not regret his actions. “I don’t regret it. To tell you the truth, this has given me some publicity.”


One Belgian psychologist had this to say: “The trauma this girl must be feeling is indescribable. She feels like a circus freak… and no wonder, because she looks like one.”

Via The Daily Mail.

Few will have much sympathy considering the look of the man she retained as her tattooist…

    So, now that there are tons of comments, did anyone else realize that the article states 3*18 does not equal 56...?

    Math fail.

    The thing that surprises me the most is that the so called "psychologist" called her a circus freak. What a douche. Some help he is.

    It doesn't even look that bad. Shes just being a bitch. Sure, everybody gets drunk and gets a bad tattoo sometimes, but not everybody bitches so the whole world can hear you.
    Live with it bitch.

    Would you rape that? I don't think she has to worry about getting raped, unless the guy doesn't know what her face looks like.

    Who goes to a tattoo parlor and speaks a language that the tattooist doesn't understand? She's just lucky that he did draw dicks all over her face. He should have tattooed her entire face just to cover her ugliness.

    I'm going to have to trust the tattooist in this case. I can see no reason for him to lie. If he was drunk I highly doubt she wouldn't know it...

    My Eyes! They burns us. Nasty foul tattoist you pokeses them out! Wicked Tricksy False. We oughtn't have gone to a persons with a face of multiple premonitions, we shall regrets for rest of our lives. We shall sues yous for the damages done to us. Our precious face is ruined it is, we has a giant 3 of stars on our face we doeses. Who the hell would wants a giant three of starses on our faces. We is not as stupid as that we isn't. Lawyers shall attacks you and publicity shall ruins you...wait whats it doings? We are no Circus Feaks! We isn't! We isn't I say! Damns yous damn yous! Our boyfriends left us and our fathers have spits on us. We has no life! We curse yous curse yous! Then we'll has our revenges once your deads!

    Though its pretty obviously this girl has to be lying (3 stars would only take a few minutes. And when I say few, I mean 5 minutes to 10 tops.)

    You can, not necessarily fall asleep, but pass out while getting a tattoo from the pain.

    In the version of the story that I heard (CNN), she didn't actually have a problem with the tattoo (during AND after) until after she got home and her family and boyfriend saw her. THEN she decided that the work was not what she asked for. I agree with the other folks that said it is *impossible* to sleep through getting a tattoo- especially on your face! I don't think it matters how intoxicated you are, unless you are so drunk you can't walk (but then, how did she get there?)

    I'm not sure if this has been pointed out, but the
    3rd pic with the girl, there are 56 stars which looks like a big number 3!

    Hmm ~

    I am (actually) on the fence on this one.

    Seems to me ~ that the full story (whether) actually true or not, is not being told, some things seem left out.

    I have several tattoos myself and I have been awake for all of them.

    Its a process ~ agreed by all individuals and participated by each.

    Actually, when I got mine, there was a sign at the Tattoo Parlour that said ~ [no drunks, no sleeping, and no attitude]

    So, I am wondering about this...

    I have no tattoos on the face, but I do on the arms.

    My questions are like the rest who have mentioned it.

    1. when one gets a tattoo, there is always a conversation going on between each individual.

    2. How could she NOT have known that more stars where being placed on her face? Especially (if) she was checking the mirror as the tattooist stated?

    3. Why didn't she call home (immediately) after when she realized that she had that many stars on her face? Instead she goes home (first) to receive the damnation from her father and boyfriend.

    Apparently she has a mobile.. so why didn't she?

    4. If there was a apparent language barrier, she could have also (asked) that it be done (via) a translator, and by (explanation) by either drawing what she wanted on paper, which is the usual thing to do prior to getting any tattoo.

    The tattoo artist that I know of (always) looks at the requested design on paper, then does a test placement on the skin, then placement of the tattoos and where it should go.

    I will digress that Stars are simple designs, so maybe that was not needed, but you get what I am trying to say...

    Just my questions and thoughts...

    I don't see how anybody buys her story at all. Are we really to believe that she not only could sleep through having a needle repeatedly stabbed into her face, but also could not tell the difference between 3 stars being drawn and nearly 60? I could see her not being aware of 5, 6, hell, I'll even go to 10. But 56? Over that entire side of her face? Give me a fucking break. She was fully aware of what he was doing, got bitched at when she got home, and made up this bullshit story to try to dodge responsibility for it.

    Xactly ~

    Which is (why) I usually ~ "sit on the fence" ~ and take in (ALL) possibilities...

    From experience, it seems that many tend to overlook the small (and at times)the missing details in some stories..

    and (at times) I am surprised by the results, because some turn out to be true.

    However in this case... I am leaning towards the FACT that this is all BS!

    This would be terrible if she didn't know about it, as the title of the article implied. But she brought it upon herself so... I feel no sympathy.

    We all know now that Kimberley Vlaeminck lied, she did want those stars tattooed on her face. But she didn't expect the reactions of her family and friends.

    I saw her on a TV interview, with a bit of make-up on and she looked pretty good. And if you have an open mind, you have to admit that the stars make her a very noticeble girl. I think that the tattoos look good on her.
    I am amazed how many people go through the trouble to give ugly comments, always putting down other people.

    I have noticed that "just a few stars" tattooed on ladies faces are being accepted by our society, where-as only a few short years ago, it was totally taboo.

    Trends change, tastes are different, give the girl some space and keep your own narrow minds to yourself.

    Atta girl Kimberley!

    Well, I live in Belgium. She wasn't sleeping, she fell unconscious. Also, her father was there too, but the tattooist didn't allow him to go with her to the tattoo room. And when the tattooist came back, it already happened. She was probably still unconscious then. I've read it in a news-website, just a moment ago.
