As we suspected, she was telling a big pork pie...

What a fucking idiot.

I like tattoos, a lot - but on the face? There is NEVER EVER EVER a reason to make yourself look so fucking stupid!

And LOL at the idea of fallign asleep while someone tattoos your NOSE fgs

I think they are brilliant - a much prettier alternative to the "I am really dim " that she could have gone for instead.

silly girl

i would never have a facial tattoo, but i dont think it looks that bad actually..ive seen a lot worse!

Itsjustafleshwound Tue 23-Jun-09 12:33:58

She is bloody loony, but then I would also question an 'artist' who thinks it is reasonable for a girl to walk in and ask for such an extreme tattoo!!!

ByThePowerOfGreyskull Tue 23-Jun-09 12:36:36

did she really thing we would think it was possible to fall asleep whilst someone was tatooing your face?

There's a good chapter on this in 'Life at the Bottom'. Visible tattoos are an absolute disaster for people's employment prospects and are one of the factors keeping people in a lifetime on the dole.

Good god! Silly girl... and yes, the tattooist is partially liable.

Lulumama Tue 23-Jun-09 12:53:27

not sure who is more stupid.. the girl for asking for it or the tatooist for agreeing to do it on someone so young

why on earth would she have thoguht that 56 stars tattooed on her face would have been a good idea??????

mayorquimby Tue 23-Jun-09 13:10:54

why would the tattooist be partially liable? imho he should sue her for defemation now that the truth is out.

HecatesTwopenceworth Tue 23-Jun-09 13:12:41

shocker!

Foolish girl, but sad that she felt she had to lie due to fear of her dad.

HecatesTwopenceworth Tue 23-Jun-09 13:14:00

and she is 18, so deemed to be old enough to make her own choices, no matter how foolish.

no. She has nobody to blame but herself.

I just hope she can get laser treatment.

Lulumama Tue 23-Jun-09 13:16:04

plenty of 18 year olds are not mature enough to make life changing decisions , such as shall i have a tattoo on my face?? some are more than capable. the fact she lied to her dad shows a great level of immaturity, she has cause so much trouble.

tattooist tattooed somoene who was of age, but do you think he had a discussion about whether it was appropriate based on her future aspirations

i think it is unethical to tattoo on the face at a young age, and i do think 18 is young

LadyGlencoraPalliser Tue 23-Jun-09 13:16:49

I think the tatooist has been pretty decent about it actually. He's agreed to pay half the cost for removal, which considering the way she defamed him is actually rather generous.

Itsjustafleshwound Tue 23-Jun-09 13:21:00

If I was facing charges of assault, I would also be obliging...

LadyGlencoraPalliser Tue 23-Jun-09 13:22:07

But he isn't facing charges of assault now is he? As she has admitted she lied. hmm

Gorionine Tue 23-Jun-09 13:22:52

Maybe as a precautin, she should have drawn the stars on her face with a marker pen and live with it for one week before going for the real thing? That is what my DD4 is doing,she is only 2 1/2 and already much cleverer than this girl!grin

LadyGlencoraPalliser Tue 23-Jun-09 13:26:01

So after a week, are you going to let DD have the tattoo? grin

Gorionine Tue 23-Jun-09 13:27:29

so far she was not happy with any of her designs! let's hope she never will!grin

hereidrawtheline Tue 23-Jun-09 13:27:44

the thing is she is instantly recognisable to most of the world now! everyone is going to think she is a bit of an idiot and she wont have any anonymity. Does laser removal remove the whole tattoo anyway? I thought it just drastically lightened it but that could be the case from years ago & I havent updated my idea of it.

mayorquimby Tue 23-Jun-09 13:28:46

no but similarly i don't expect a shop assistant to ask people if they know what they're getting themselves into when they buy a pack of cigarettes or alcohol.

ingles2 Tue 23-Jun-09 13:28:49

Because surely the tattooist should have had written confirmation and discussed the implications of having visible tattoos on face of an 18 yr old girl... Surely?
Course he's not going to pay half of treatment now she has admitted to lying and is relishing the publicity. Morally wrong I think.

OldLadyKnowsNothing Tue 23-Jun-09 13:29:25

He's withdrawn his offer to pay half the costs of removal, and will now insist on written agreements before tattooing anyone.

sillyarse Tue 23-Jun-09 13:32:11

I agree that the tattooist s hould not have done it

Its irresponsible of him

burningupinspeed Tue 23-Jun-09 13:36:51

Laser removal is incredibly painful (not personal experience, from what I have read) and takes several sessions to lighten/possibly remove a tattoo, and can cause scarring. I don't wish to sound cruel as she IS young but I think the removal will be the lesson she deserves to learn.

I do wonder if the tattooist tried to discuss it with her. It must be a bit difficult for any tattooist as I bet they all have to do designs they'd rather not, things they find tacky, distasteful, or just plain crap but if they are selective then what of their business - as that's what it is afterall.

The tattooist who did the goldenpalace.com tattoo spend about 10 hours trying to talk the woman out of it. He still did it. Was he irresponsible? I don't know as the woman's story is very sad and if he had not done it she would have just gone to the next guy.
