Thought I'd share an amusing article I saw here. A woman is suing a tattoo artist who she claims mistakenly covered half of her face with star tattoos when she feel asleep during the procedure. Apparently she only wanted a few stars but woke up with 56. I have to call bullshit on this one - I think it's a case of buyer's remorse. Part of the reason I'm so skeptical is I can't imagine falling asleep while getting your face tattooed. Many tattoo artists won't tattoo your face if you ask, and with good reason: it can change your life and most people are not happy with the result.

I've seen a little news cast of this story - funny enough the girl got her picture taken just after, and didn't look like she had any remorse.... But i don't get the tattoo artist, why isn't he refusing to do this on a just 18 year old girl...

I call BS too, I think her dad must have been pissed so she lied and said she fell asleep.

So I was just looking through the HoneyTattoo Blog, and this might be pretty gay or if anyone cares, but he must have been the artist for John Mayer's tattoo because here it is... The reason I know this is because you can see the SRV on the shoulder, that stands for Stevie Ray Vaughn...

A danish article today claims that the girl is lying - she came up with the story, because her father went crazy with her new facial tattoo.....
I think she will think twice before going to the press next time :)
