Face tattoo after first date update: Ink artist, Rouslan Toumaniantz, is at the center of more controversy since a woman accused him of tatting her face while she was sleeping three years ago. This time, a Russian graduate student fell head over heels after a first date with Toumaniantz, who obliged her by tattooing her face with -- get this – his name.
According to a follow up story on Feb. 5 from Huffington Post, the tattoo artist inked his name on Lesya Toumaniantz's face only hours after they met.
The smitten woman, who proudly dons the tattoo, "Ruslan" in Gothic letters across her face, loves her newly-minted boyfriend so much that she wants him to ink every part of her body. Imagine that?
Reportedly, Rouslan and Lesya met online in a chat room, made plans to meet and the rest is history. What's more, she's moved one step towards walking down the aisle when she changed her last name on Facebook to -- you guessed -- Toumaniantz.
On why she got her face tattooed after the first date, the bride-to-be said this:
"It's a symbol of our eternal devotion. I'd like him to tattoo every inch of my body."
Regarding the controversy three years ago, Toumaniantz rose to stardom -- sort of -- in 2009 when a woman accused him of tatting 56 stars on her face while she was asleep.
However, Kimberley Vlaminck, 18 at the time, admitted to making the story up when her father lashed out at her over the extreme face art.
Will Toumaniantz's new girlfriend have a change of heart after getting a face tattoo after the first date?
