In 2009 Rouslan Toumaniantz made headlines for tattooing a girl’s face. Remember? Kimberly Valminck said she fell asleep and Toumaniantz tattooed 56 stars onto her face. I never bought that story. I’ve been tattooed four times and you cannot sleep during it. Even the ones that don’t really hurt still keep you awake. It came out that Valminck had lied because her dad was (rightfully) mad at her. It didn’t matter that the girl had lied, Toumaniantz was ruined and so he picked up his tattoo gun and moved back to Russia.
That’s not the end of Toumaniantz headline making ways. While in Russia, Toumaniantz met Lesya online. They met in person and within hours were head over heels in love and Toumaniantz was up to his old tricks…tattooing her face.
Rouslan Toumaniantz tattooed his first name on his girlfriend, Lesya’s, face after less than 24 hours of knowing her. Lesya posted photos of her tattoo on her Facebook page, she said she wants, “100% of the body covered in tattoo :) … It’s a symbol of our eternal devotion. I’d like him to tattoo every inch of my body.”
A friend of the couple said, “I know that there are people who are terrified that Lesya has made a rash decision that she’ll regret horribly, but sometimes the best decisions are the ones you make in an instant with your heart rather than the ones long-debated in your mind.”
She is eighteen and has a man’s name tattooed on her face. A man she had known for less than 24 hours. Yeah, this will be a huge regret!
