She only asked for three, says a Belgian girl, but ended up with 56 stars tattooed on her face because she said she fell asleep during the procedure. Huh?!
For Kimberley Vlaeminck, Dr. Seuss's "The Sneetches" could be a cautionary tale. In the story "The Sneetches," they first wanted stars on their bellies ... then they wanted to get them removed. And it cost them plenty.
According to the Daily Mail, 18-year-old Vlaeminck requested only 3 stars to be inked on her face, but something got lost in translation and the tattoo artist put 56 of them on instead. "When he started the tattooing, I didn't want to feel the pain, and so I went to sleep. I woke up when he was starting to tattoo my nose and I saw what he had already done. I counted 56 stars, it's frightening," Vlaeminck told the Daily Mail.
Toumaniantz says he gave the girl exactly what she asked for -- not a star more, not a star less. In fact, he says the Belgian teen was awake during the tattooing session, even checking herself out in the mirror from time to time.
Vlaeminck plans to sue for the cost of removing the tattoos, which is estimated at $13,000. Or Sylvester McMonkey McBean might let her use his Star-Off Machine.
