Girl who claimed her face was tattooed while sleeping comes clean

Kimberly Vlaeminck, 18, made headlines when she claimed last week to have woken up from a tattoo session with 56 stars on her face. She said she had asked for just three small ones. Turns out though, Vlaeminck was lying. From the Sydney Morning Herald:

"I asked for 56 stars and initially adored them. But when my father saw them, he was furious. So I said I fell asleep and that the tattooist had made a mistake," Ms Vlaeminck told Dutch TV.

(Tattoo artist Rouslan) Toumaniantz – who is covered in tattoos and piercings – had insisted Vlaeminck wanted 56 stars tattooed on her face.

But he had said he would pay for half of the laser treatment to remove the tattoos, The Telegraph said.

"Kimberley is unhappy and it is not my wish to have an unsatisfied client," Mr Toumaniantz said.

But after Ms Vlaeminck's confession he had withdrawn the offer, The Telegraph said.
