The tattoo artist infamous for tattooing 56 stars on a girl’s face while she slept has now found love, tattooing his name on his new girlfriend’s face within 24 hours of meeting her.
The two are to be married, as Lesya Toumaniantz from Saransk, Russia, let Ruslan Toumaniantz tattoo “Ruslan” over her entire face in giant Gothic script.
The two met in an online chatroom, and quickly fell “head over heels in love,” deciding to get married after Lesya permanently marked her face.
“It’s a symbol of our eternal devotion. I’d like him to tattoo every inch of my body,” she said.
The former art student also had him write “All For Love” above her eyebrow.
“All for Ruslan,” she posted on her Facebook today next to a big pink heart.
Leslya, whose sister is also a tattoo artist, is learning to tattoo under her fiance’s guidance.
“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 and of course a family,” said a friend of Toumaniantz.
“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.”
Ruslan made headlines in 2009 after tattooing 56 stars on the face of Kimberley Vlaeminckin, who lied and said that she was asleep when he tattooed her.
Vlaeminckin later admitted that she wanted all 56 stars, and that she lied because she was scared what her father’s reaction would be.
