Or is the tattoo star face real?
06:53 AM



As Enoo pointed out in the comments section of yesterday's post, the hoax claim for the tattooed star face girl was largely based on the domain registration of the Kimberlizer site being in April before the tattoos, but considering the Kimberlizer star face app is on a subdomain of the ad agency's site (not registered), well, maybe this story is for real.

Watching this video has me changing my mind -- about whether the tattooing actually took place, not her claim that she fell asleep to find her whole face tattooed. If it's real, we can probably chalk it up a teenager changing her story confronted with freaked out parents.

Nevertheless, it still raises questions about the responsibility of a tattooist -- ethically -- to say No to the requests of the foolish.

And if it still turns out to be a hoax, I say, well played.

question: does she actually have a chance to succeed with her law suit?



sleeping during a facial tattoo ???



One of the various video clips shows the girl's mother rubbing ointment onto what do appear to be fairly fresh tattoos. I guess it would be quite difficult to fake the raised scabs...

The whole thing is decidedly weird in any case.



I believe she was tattooed as it appears that way but I don't believe for a moment that she fell asleep and did not give permission.

I cannot believe a tattoo artist working out of a legit studio would risk a career by doing something like that without consent.

I do think, however, with someone so young and tattoo-free by outward appearance, that something this extreme all at once, ethically, should have been heavily discussed and a waiting period given - also, maybe started with a few and see how it goes from there.

This type of tattoo certainly would not have been done in my Midwest suburban studio. I haven't decided how this is going to affect the industry. They say all publicity is good - who knows.
