Three years later, Belgian girl who had star tattoos all over her face… still has star tattoos all over her face
Three years later (yes, it’s really been three years), the Belgian girl who claims she fell asleep at a tattoo parlor, only to wake up with a face full of tiny star tattoos… still has all those little star tattoos, despite saying that she would have them lasered off as soon as possible.
Last summer she was preparing to shell out £9,000 for laser surgery and said she hoped to have the design removed by the end of September. But, almost three years after the 21-year-old decided to go under the needle, the constellation shows little sign of fading.
In June 2009, Miss Vlaeminck lied to family and reporters that she had asked tattooist Rouslan Toumaniantz for just three stars near her eye. As her regret sank in, she claimed he kept adding more and more after she fell asleep at the Tattoo Box in Coutrai, Belgium. She promised to sue the tattooist for the cost of removal, claiming a language barrier meant the Flemish speaker had misunderstood when she gave instructions in French and English.
Miss Vlaeminck said she avoided going out in public because the tattoos made her feel like a ‘freak’. But a week later she confessed to a Dutch TV station that she had been awake throughout and had indeed asked for the full 56 marks. She said she lied because she was afraid of how her father would react.
I don’t know… now that the stars have faded a bit, I think it looks pretty cool. I think she should keep them.
