"18-year old Kimberley Vlaeminck from Kortrijk, Belgium, has pressed charges against a tattoo-artist. She asked for 3 stars but the tatoo artist tattooed 56 stars on her face without her even noticing. 'Look at me, i'm ugly,' she said. The girl is afraid to show up at work. Kimberley is in shock.

Last sunday she went with her father Diego, her boyfriend and her sister to the tattooshop Tattoo Box in Kortrijk. She always wanted to get 3 dots tattooed next to her left eye. Her dad wanted even to pay for them as a family tradition. The tattooman convinced the girl to choose stars in place of dots.

Kimberley said the communication was not very good. The man only spoke French and Kimberley speaks Flemish and a little bit of English.

When her family went for icecream, Kimberley got tattooed. 'I told him I only needed 3 stars but he kept on going. I asked him 3 times to stop. Suddenly he asked me if he had to color the 2 big stars. I didn't know what he was talking about. At that time my father stepped in.'

Daddy Diego was furious. Kimberley told her dad that she must have fallen asleep.

The tattoo guy, Rouslain Toumaniantz (37), originally from Paris, told us that's impossible. 'Getting your face tattooed is so painfull, sleeping is out of the question. The girl asked for those stars. She was very happy with the result but now she blames me because her father is angry. I can't fix it, I have no laserinstallation to remove the tattoos. I can give her a reduction but that's it.'

Kimberley Vlaeminck does not want to wait. 'I want the stars to be gone! I'm afraid to show myself anywhere because i'm ugly.'"

What a lying hooker!
There is no way you could fall asleep during a facial tattoo.
She just got pissed because her dad didn't like it and now she wants to whore her story out to the media in hopes that someone will either give her lots of money to get it fixed or have some poor sap of a doctor do it for free.

Scammer!

The tattoo guy have made an public statement.

"Having been accused by Kimberley Vlaminck to have tattooed her against her will and while she was sleeping, I want to react here to those calumnious allegations and to say exactly how things went.

First of all I’d like to say that the girl is complaining to have asked for only three stars and to end up with around fifty on her face. But as a matter of fact, she now asks to have a part of them lasered off and still wants to keep something like 20 or 25 stars on the forehead (as it can be seen on various TVs and in police reports), which means that this part of her accusation is totally irrelevant.

Then, the girl said she felt asleep during the tattoo session. But :

1) Tattoo hurts,
2) Tattoo hurts more on face than on most other places,
3) Tattoo hurts even more on the nose than on the face,
4) Apart from the pain factor, the emotional impact of a first tattoo is huge, which makes it even less likely to sleep during such a session,
5) During this tattoo I had to ask Kimberley to change quite often her position, because the face isn’t flat and you need to always adjust the persons position and yours to be able to tattoo,
6) Kimberley did stand up many times during the session and did check up the work in a mirror,
7) We spoke during a part of the session,
8) The call log of her mobile phone and SMS activity could easily show that from the start of the session to its end she wasn’t sleeping,
9) And most importantly, a witness, being totally independent from both sides saw all the session from its start to the end, and confirms every word above. Kortrijk police made an inquiry, and both of us (me and the witness) were conducted shortly after Kimberley tattoo was finished to the police station, and both of us said exactly what did happen, and therefore gave exactly the same version of the events. Copies of minutes (in Flemish) we can provide.

So Kimberly was absolutely aware of what was happening during all the tattoo session and got what she asked, no more no less.

Moreover, I’d like to insist on the fact that the media buzz that’s making this whole affair so popular at the moment is based on the reaction of most people to the view of the tattoo. Still, you have to understand clearly that she doesn’t ask at the moment to have it removed, but just want a part of it removed.

Plus, to get this tattoo done she was accompanied by her father, who left her to get some beers (and not ice creams, as opposed to what he told to media and as it was proved by his breath) exactly when we started to design Kimberley’s tattoo on her face.

Without judging anybody here (positively or negatively), we’re not talking about a totally ordinary demand, and we’re not talking here about a totally ordinary family

Besides all those elements, what is clearly astonishing and unacceptable is the runaway in the media and the ability for most of them (papers, radio or TV) to relay derogatory and calumnious information without a hint of evidence, without checking up anything and without any kind of care for truth, the priority being quite obviously sensationalism and media impact even if it has to destroy anything on the way.

But what is even more despicable is some capacity in the media to meticulously get rid of the elements that could make the story a little bit less interesting to read and the voluntary concealing of simple and irrefutable arguments.

Still, from the very start, when some “journalist” hears of such stuff like « she slept during her first tattoo on her face », he could be a little bit more careful before deciding to put instantly such bullshit as the big news of the front page.

The guy has even offered to pony up half the cost to get the tats removed.

The chick is also in the process of suing him.

What a fucking bunch of idiots.

She fell asleep? Really? Really??!!

My god...how this girl's stupidity was taken seriously enough that I have now found out about it BOGGLES my mind! I don't know who's the bigger fucktard. The chick, or the people listening to her.

Falling asleep during a facial tattoo is fucking impossible, unless she was drugged up to shit heaven which she was not. She might as well say she breathes underwater.
