The young woman who claimed a tattoo artist inked dozens of stars on her face against her will has admitted to lying.18-year-old Kimberly Vlaminck, from Belgium, made headlines last week after claiming she was asleep as a tattoo artist inked 56 stars on her face when she only wanted three.

At the time, she said the artist didn't understand her instructions.

Now, she admits that she was awake and asked for the 56 stars, then lied about it after her father became furious.

That's exactly what the tattoo artist claimed all along.

Belgian media have said Rouslan Toumaniantz, who runs the tattoo parlor called The Tattoo Box in Courtrai, denies her claim, saying she knew "exactly what she wanted".

"She was awake and looked into the mirror several times as the procedure was taking place," he is reported to have said. "The trouble all started when she went home and her father and boyfriend went crazy."
