Lesya, was so taken with new love, tattooist Ruslan Toumaniantz, she allowed him to carve his name in five-inch high Gothic script across her face...a
mere 24 hours after meeting him.
Last year he became notorious when he tattooed a galaxy of stars over the face of Kimberley Vlaeminck, then just 18, when she nodded off in his
studio. (She was not best pleased.)
How do you nod off during a tattoo on your face?
She did sue though and he has to pay for part of her laser removal.
Undeterred, Lesya says the pair, who met in an online chatroom, quickly fell "head over heels in love" and intend to wed.
That's right, a chat room, then off to the tattoo parlor.
Hey, free tats for life!
"It's a symbol of our eternal devotion. I'd like him to tattoo every inch of my body," she said.
Here is the handsome artist and the lucky girl! You can clearly see he is planning his love tattoo ideas for her as we speak.
Smitten Lesya, who also allowed Ruslan to etch "All For Love' above her eyebrow, is now studying to be a tattooist under her fiance's er, expert
An unnamed friend said: "Their plans for a life together include her learning to tattoo while she also gets the full-body ink that she’s always
dreamed of (biomech is the current plan) — and of course a family.
"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.
"I know many people whose favourite mods are the ones they got 'on a whim', and who are still happily married to the person they fell for the instant
they saw — "love at first sight" is an old truism — and proposed to within the week.
"I wish them the best of luck and hope that their life plays out as they dream it to be."
Since debuting her ink on Facebook (under the title All for Ruslan, Lesya has received numerous messages of praise on from her friends.
"You must be so happy that you can wear that tattoo. Enjoy it. It looks great," wrote Ralf Bieler.
"Sooo beautiful. even the style of the name fits your face well," wrote another.
I've really never quite understood the big deal about permanently drawing all over one's body, although I've seen some fantastic work.
I've also seen what they look like when you turn 60 or 70 too, blue ink smudges stretched out of shape. I've seen beautiful women, in beautiful
dress, turn around and have a flaming skull on their back or something, what a shame. Grandma you got a tramp stamp?!
A little discrete one here or there is amusing, but wow, across the face.
The gift that keeps on giving even when the love is long long gone.
