Oh Kimberley. Remember Kimberley Vlaminck, aka Starface? She claimed that she had fallen asleep after asking for three stars on her face and when she woke up, she had 56 stars. Rouslan Toumaniantz, the tattoo artist, said she was lying. Eye witnesses said she was lying. Now, Kimberley says she was lying. From the Telegraph:
She said after the tattooing last week: “It is terrible for me. I cannot go out on to the street. I look like a freak.”
But the 18-year-old has finally confessed she did not fall asleep, that she wanted all the stars and was “fully aware” of what Mr Toumaniantz was doing.
Ms Vlaminck told a Dutch TV crew: “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 the that the tattooist made a mistake.”
Everyone who read the story didn’t believe her. I have no idea how her father could have believed that. Toumaniantz has since withdrawn his offer to pay for half of the tattoo removal.
I don’t know what’s worse– having 56 stars tattooed on your face or having a face that everyone will recognize as the face of a liar.
