A teenage girl is suing a tattoo artist for 10,000. She allegedly asked him for three stars on her face but fell asleep midway and ended up with 56. Kimberley Vlaminck paid 55 for "the graffiti that has ruined my life" in her Belgian home town of Courtrai. Getting them removed would require surgery to the tune of 8,500.
Jules Clocher, a Belgian psychologist, said: "The trauma this girl must be feeling is indescribable. She feels like a circus freak - and no wonder, because she looks like one".
