Girl with tattooed face admits lying about 56 stars in fear of furious dadJune 23rd, 2009 - 1:29 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, June 23 (ANI): A teenage girl who alleged she fell asleep while getting her face tattooed has confessed she lied and was up the whole time.
Kimberley Vlaminck had claimed she asked for only three stars to be tattooed near her left eye but was shocked to find 56 stars on her face after she woke up.
According to The Telegraph, the 18-year-old and her livid father had gone to the police and had been seeking 9,000 pounds in damages to fit the bill for laser surgery to remove the tattoos.
But the Belgian teen, who accused the Flemish-speaking tattooist for not understanding her French and English instructions, admitted she lied about falling asleep because her father was “furious”.
The newspaper reported Vlaminck owned up she wanted all the stars and was “fully aware” during the time she was getting tattooed.
“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 that the tattooist had made a mistake,” News.com.au quoted Vlaminck as telling a Dutch TV crew. (ANI)
