Thursday Weisblog: It’s not in the stars



Thanks to an anonymous tip from a friend (you know who you are), I have decided to give the blog a little international flavor today and let you know about a Belgian teenager who has made the news.

Kimberley Vlaeminck recently went to a tattoo parlor to get three small stars tattooed on her face. This seems ridiculous enough to me … but the story gets better (or worse, depending on how you think about it).

If you believe her story, she fell asleep during the tattoo process and was shocked to find 56 stars on her face! Yes, 56 stars … on her face!



If you are to believe the tattoo “artist,” he says he was only doing what he was asked to do. “I maintain that she absolutely agreed that I tattoo those 56 stars on the left side of her face, says Rouslan Toumaniantz. (How ’bout his photo, boys and girls!)

Kimberley is now suing the tattoo artist, sticking to her story that she told him to only put three tats on her face. Rouslan counters by saying she’s just upset because her boyfriend dumped her after seeing her new ink.

Who do you believe? While I have a hard time just looking at Toumaniantz, I tend to believe him. How do you fall asleep while someone is drawing on your face with tiny needles?

Rouslan is willing to pay for the removal of half the “artwork” in order to make this case go away, but he still sticks to his story that he did as instructed.

Anybody else out there have tattoos? On your face? Other than Mike Tyson and this young woman, I can’t readily think of anyone.
