You know that thing EVERY teenager goes through, where they meet someone, fall into a relationship, and then get a giant tattoo together to symbolize they're love? No? that never happened to you? Hmm, did you decide you never want to be taken seriously by anyone you meet ever again? Ohh, that's the part of the progression I'm forgetting. The couple has to decide they never want to be taken seriously by anyone they meet ever again.
"I know I can never become Secretary of State like I've
always dreamed, but this tattoo was WORTH IT!"
Anyhow, this is the story of Lesya Toumaniantz, a Russian girl who met a man named Rouslan Toumaniantz in an online chat room and, after seeing him in person one time, got his name tattooed on her face. That's right, Lesya now has a giant "Rouslan" inked forever all over her face. It's an insane transformation, from girl to tattoo-faced monster, and it's been documented by the internet. Let's watch, shall we?
Fair warning, though, it's a hard thing to see a person do this to themselves. I had to think about it as a clever little homage to the Anakin Skywalker story from the Star Wars prequels.
What a sweet kid, taking a picture of herself back home on Tatooine.
"Nice to meet you, Senator Palpatine."
The first hint of darkness. Die Tuskan Raiders, die!
Should've listened to Obi Wan. He had the high ground.
You might remember Rouslan Toumaniantz as the tattoo artist who put a bunch of stars on the face of Kimberley Vlaminck a few years back. So this face-tattooing business is apparently his thing. Rouslan Toumaniantz is like a Batman villain, except instead of messing with the average Gotham citizen he actively ruins their lives forever.
Less chance of being elected District Attorney than a post-aciding Harvey Dent.
And now, according to her Facebook, Lesya is engaged to Rouslan. And I say great. Good for them. Because let's be honest, I can't think of a more perfect ending to the story. For both the face-tatooed goofballs and the world at large.
This is a genetic line that needs some real CONTAINMENT.
