Next time, be proud of your face tattoos

24 Jun

When we first heard of the Belgian teenager who was threatening to sue a tattoo parlor for inking 56 tattoos on her face when she only requested 3, claiming the mistake was made when she fell asleep during the process, everyone with a functioning brain thought about it for a nanosecond before confidently calling bullshit.

And it turns out, we were right. The girl made the whole story up.

Truth is she requested all 56 face tattoos, but decided to fabricate the “I was duped” tale because she was scared she’d get into trouble with her dad.

First off, this must be the scariest father on the planet. To avoid the old man’s wrath, his daughter contacted the police, threatened to sue and conducted a bunch of interviews to progress this ridiculous, elaborate lie. I can only imagine the prodigious ass-whooping she was anticipating to go to this extreme.

Second, and most importantly, I’m having trouble understanding why she even presented the “I was only hoping for three tattoos” to begin with. If you’re going to go all in, you might as well paint yourself as completely innocent. Say you were whistling down the sidewalk heading to your weekly volunteer gig when you were attacked from behind by a thug wielding an ether-soaked rag, and the next thing you knew you were tatted up. Better than starting with the excuse of three, unless Dad has some weird stipulation that he’ll allow face tattoos so long as they remain in single digit quantities.

    I know that *I* have often fallen asleep while someone caused me white-hot pain with a sharp needle.
