Yes, and what is she going to do when he is dead and gone?  Find a guy with the same name?  I understand he is way older than her too?

This does make me sad.  I have nothing against tattoos.  However, I'm selective about it.  Tattoos on the face is just so gangster!

A tattooist has inked his name across his girlfriend's face less than 24 hours after they first met.

Lesya Toumaniantz from Saransk, Russia, allowed Rouslan Toumaniantz to sign 'Ruslan' over her face in giant Gothic script on the day they met

The pair - who'd met on an online chat room - say they quickly fell 'head over heels in love' and soon after met in Moscow, Russia, where they decided to get married.

'It's a symbol of our eternal devotion. I'd like him to tattoo every inch of my body," she said.

I had a discussion on tattoos on a facebook page, it was about tasteful v tasteless tattoos (i.e. really offensive/ones that are inappropriate for work), the reason why I had a discussion was because a well known firm had decided not to employ people with visible tattoos, as you can imagine that most of the people were saying that "all tattoos" are a matter of opinion, I had argued that some tattoos were really inappropriate for the work place. Just imagine the backlash I had received from them, all of them were saying that their tattoos were "tasteful"

The one in the photo you have posted is sad that people "have to prove they love one another" in this way, just imagine if they split up acrimoniously

Having to congratulate oneself in this manner is much like having to sing "Happy Birthday" to oneself because no one else will. It's not particularly convincing. In fact, it's incredibly sad.

I realize this was not in the USA, but for the sake of argument....

She is an adult. Can you imagine what would happen in this country if a legal adult asked for this ink and was refused? It could turn into a multi-million dollar discrimination lawsuit, feminists would be up in arms, and the woman would be more popular than the girl who recently flipped off the Judge concerning her RR jewelry.

On another note, I read the article and saw the thing about the girl with the stars tattooed on her face. I know she dropped the suit, but claiming she was asleep?

I have four tattoos, one of them fairly large, and there is NO WAY I wouldn't have woken up when that was happening...

Both my tattoo artists have told me about turning people away. One mentioned refusing to do tattoos on someone's hands, neck, or face unless the client was already heavily tattooed.

I used to work in a shop.

Tattoo artists legally reserve the right to deny a tattoo on anyone whether they are intoxicated, the tattoo isn't practical, they are breastfeeding, etc. etc.

My shop would also turn people away if they wanted dick tattoos, tattoos in areas that would easily fade, or all white tattoos.


A tattoo is a heavy decision and sometimes someone ELSE has to make the right judgement calls for you. They are the licensed professional. It's their call. I would say we turned down atleast 2 people a day for impractical tattoos. As well as them being professionals, they are artists as well and most dignified artists will not just slap anything on anyone just because they wanted it.

I can almost guarantee if she had come into my shop with zero tattoos and wanted this, she would have been turned away. I can almost guarantee that even if she were covered head to toe, she would have been turned away.

To the people who have commented on my reply above. I am NOT saying that there wasn't a reason to turn her away. I am not necessarily saying that the tattoo was a good idea, any of that.

And I certainly know that the artist has the right to turn someone away. I was merely looking at the issue from an armchair-legal perspective.

I am not into tattooing all that strongly. My son has several tattoos and I have a few. They were meaningful for me (and for my son) when he or I got them, and there is a distinct possibility that this young woman did something really DUMB.

But I do know that tattoos mean different things to different people, especially in other parts of the world (the Maoris in NZ come to mind). For all I know, this woman had such a shitty upbringing that this attention from a guy led her to this and they will be married for decades. On the other hand, she might be a moron.

I choose to think there was a reason it all went this way and that it is a good reason.

It truly breaks my heart. I'm looking at it as a mother, a woman...we already know the chances of that relationship lasting is 10%, she will have a tough time finding work, she will mature and regret it all. He's disgusting and she's clueless. Just sad.

As I read the story, the guy is the tattoo artist and she is now studying under him to become one as well.

I find this extremely sad. As someone who has tattoos myself I do not choose my ink off a whim. I really hope she thought out her choice.

Definitely. Even in the West she'd face severe problems and Russians are not as liberal. Her chances to find a good husband plummeted.

Not even laser treatment can fix such a massive tattoo on such a delicate part of the body.

People make choices and have to live with them.

Takes two to tango.

He should have better sense as well, as he's a working tattoo artist and has been in legal peril with a regretful impulse tattoo before.


They share the rash decision no prize.

I don't feel sorry for her at all.

They met and fell in love online, they could of been planning this for months prior and that information could of been ignored in the article. She wants her entire body covered with tattoos, why bother starting in a discreet place if she wants to go full ball anyway?

In the video there was three tattooists working on her at once, any one of them could of tried to talk her out of it or refuse to help due to the restrictions it will now place on her life. None of them did, because she wanted it.

I hope they live happily ever after in their little inky world while they judge us for being too normal just as we judge them for being too different.

Edit: one of my (beautiful, clever, eighteen year old, full of future opportunities, perfect bodied) friends went and got giant gothic script tattooed onto her ribs a few months ago. It says 'just breath' or something similar. Not just on one rib, but one word covers one half of her torso and the other word the other half. It made her far, far less attractive in my eyes, but she wasn't doing it for me, she was doing it for herself.
