Kimberley Vlaminck has come clean, admitting that she lied about falling asleep and awoke to 56 tattooes on her face. She said her father was furious and blamed the tattoo artist for the extra 53 tattooes as opposed to just having three near her eye.
Amid a frenzy of media attention, she then vowed to sue tattoo artist Rouslan Toumaniantz for the £9,000 she needs for laser surgery to have them removed. She said after the tattooing: 'It is terrible for me. I cannot go out on to the street. I look like a freak.'
I was lying: Kimberley Vlaminck originally claimed she had only asked for three star tattoos but ended up with 56 after she fell asleep
But the 18-year-old has finally confessed she did not fall asleep, that she wanted all the stars and was 'fully aware' of what Toumaniantz was doing.
Miss Vlaminck told a Dutch TV crew: 'I asked for 56 stars and initially adored them. But when my father saw them, he was furious. So I said I fell asleep and that the tattoist had made a mistake.'
Toumaniantz had consistently denied he had made a mistake and always insisted Vlaminck wanted all 56 stars. He said at the time: 'I maintain that she absolutely agreed that I tattoo those 56 stars on the left side of her face.'
But despite insisting Vlaminck had asked for 56 stars, he still initially agreed to pay for half of the treatment to remove the tattoos. He had said: 'Kimberley is unhappy and it is not my wish to have an unsatisfied client.

'I don't regret it. To tell you the truth, this has given me some publicity.'
Toumanaintz is now said to have withdrawn his offer and said from now on he will get written consent from clients before he begins tattooing.
On the off chance that given the decision, we're almost certain nobody would pick to be in a long distance relationship. Without a doubt, non-appearance influences the heart to become fonder, yet we're calling bullsh*t on that one: being separated from the individual you adore is hard. What's more, to influence it to work - and keep it a sound, useful and sexual, you need to invest effort, responsibility and well, get somewhat innovative. Read more
Life is a precious gift, but it’s all too easy to take it for granted. We assume we’re going to wake up each morning, and may have grievances about our work, or our neighbors, or the weather. We worry about things that we have no control over. All of these things may mean we’re not taking opportunities that are presented to us and we’re not living life to the full because we’re always looking for the negative. Read more
