PHOTOS Woman has man’s name tattooed on her face 24 hours after meeting him

Lesya Toumaniantz face tattoo Ruslan

Lots of people claim to have experienced love at first sight, but very few have proof. That cannot be said for Lesya Toumaniantz (above), a former art student from from Saransk, Russia who allowed her tattoo artist boyfriend Rouslan Toumaniantz to tattoo ‘Ruslan’ across her face in bold, 5-inch high gothic lettering less than 24 hours after meeting him for the first time!

Lesya, who is a lover of tattoos and whose sister is a tattoo artist, met Toumaniantz (seen with Lesya above, just before she got her face inked) in an online chat room and the two fell “head over heels in love.” They finally met each other in Moscow last month and it was a matter of hours before Lesya was in the chair getting her face needle and inked up. It was about the same amount of time before the two were engaged and Lesya had taken Rouslan’s last name!

“It’s a symbol of our eternal devotion. I’d like him to tattoo every inch of my body,” Lesya says.

“RUSLA” isn’t all Rouslan has written on his betrothed’s visage, he also added an “All For Love” above her left eyebrow. (It may be egotistic, but I’m glad that English is the accepted language for face ink declarations of love! Amerikuh!)

“Their plans for a life together include her learning to tattoo while she also gets the full-body ink that she’s always dreamed of, and of course a family,” says a pal of Toumaniantz. “I know that there are people who are terrified that Lesya has made a rash decision that she’ll regret horribly, but sometimes the best decisions are the ones you make in an instant with your heart rather than the ones long-debated in your mind,” he adds.

So what do you think about Lesya’s rather permanent decision? To help you decide here is a photo of Lesya before her Ruslan face tatto as well as a few taken after:

Making international headlines for tattooing a young woman’s face might be unsettling for some, but Rouslan Toumaniantz is probably completely unfazed given his unrivaled experience in the area. I’ll give you a second to think about it… international headlines … young woman with STARtling face ink…

OK, time’s up! Rouslan Toumaniantz is no stranger to viral face tattoo news because he is the artist who inked the famous 56 stars on the face of 18-year-old Kimberley Vlaeminckin of Belgium in 2009! In case you don’t remember, Vlaeminckin sued Toumaniantz, claiming she had only asked for three stars on her face, but had fallen asleep in the chair. She later dropped the suit after confessing she had been awake throughout and had indeed asked for all 56 stars. (Click the link to catch up on that amazing story.)

Here’s a video report on Lesya Toumaniantz from The Huffington Post:

    well she used to be cute!!! way to ruin your life!

  • HoardersFan

    Wow. She was beautiful without the tattoo. Plus the bloody mess looks gross.

  • blehbleh

    What a stupid woman my god how dumb do u have to be ? Not only does it look stupid but it will be nearly impossible to lazer off. Both of them sound like they are made for each other hahahaha

  • Lia

    that is not attractive at all!! it’s one thing if its on your wrist or neck, but on you face!!!! i mean it will be there forever!!! even if she gets it removed it will leave a scar!!! I cant imagine how bad that hurt!!!

  • Nikki

    The stupidity of some people is truly unreal. I’m not a fan of name tattoos anyways )and I’ve been married for over seven years). I don’t believe that it “curses” a relationship, like some may think. I just think it’s tacky and looks like cattle branding. With that being said, this just takes the cake. They both look like complete morons, and yeah…good luck at getting a decent job or even entering into another relationship when this one inevitably ends. They both look gross and unattractive, and the fact that her ugly, illegible tattoo is the name of a man )that she barely knows, at that) is just pathetic. Way to look like a desperate loser.

  • Jenn

    He’s going to have the last laugh in that relationship.

  • Don

    They both look grotesque.

  • Mel

    She was pretty before why did she do that to her face?!

  • Tara

    I’m terrified.

  • Lil

    Oh hey we found bane’s twin sister. Lol the dark knight Lulz

  • Jenn

    People like this should be euthanized

  • Guest

    Have to love the Jewish Magen Dovid tattoo on her back. Really class. Not…

  • amy

    Her face looks as bad as his nose plugs. Gross.

  • Nathan

    To be fair, she didn’t do this within “24 hours of meeting” this guy. They had been talking online for months prior and were already in love. Still, I don’t know why anyone would want to disfigure herself like that.

  • Jay

    What the ….

  • Punkinatrix

    This is an adult woman who made her own decision as to what looks beautiful to her. If you’re going to criticize everyone who changes their face with some drastic modification, you’re going to have to lump in people who have their skulls shaved down to make cheekbones more prominent, and women who inject botulism into their faces to disperse wrinkles as well as any other expression they might have. Facial tattoo has had status and beauty symbolism since 3300BC. What are letters but symbols? Why should this keep her from being a productive, employable member of society? Everyone’s making so many judgements about her worth and character because of a cosmetic procedure. Not everyone is the same, have some tolerance.

  • me

    One of the first thoughts after hearing of this story, wondered if the girl was on drugs, then saw the guy…yep…had to be. Nightmare…both them.

  • jeff

    Only in Russia…

  • Sweet Venom

    Maybe if she regrets it she’ll say she fell asleep…

  • Some face tattoos I think can be totally awesome, but this one isn’t cool at all. It doesn’t look nice.

  • 137s

    As a tattooist, i see this in a negative way, theres nothing wrong with facial tattoos, whether it be on a male or female, but a tattoo should fit and flow with the body to have a positive impact on a persons aesthetics.
    This tattoo is basically giant old english lettering, across a girls face that has no flow or form whatsoever, it looks out of place and has destroyed this girls natural beauty.

    Therefore in my opinion its a bad tattoo, with bad artistic license.

    And i know people will say

    ‘its there body its there choice, yadda yadda yadda’

    a tattooist is responsible for judging what will work and what wont and has the freedom to refuse to do a tattoo if he/she knows its a bad idea. The fact that the tattooist hasnt recognised this as a bad idea and has had the lack of moral sense to do it is worrying.

  • What a waste im sure her parents are very proud!!!!

  • 1GrayGal

    Ugly, unemployable, and utterly foolish! #epicfail

    • Mia003

      He has a job.

  • burkey

    I understand that while others disagree some people are all about tattoos and cover their arms, legs, torso, etc.. but the face? i mean first of all you just look crazy. they said they want to have a family? Their baby will be terrified of them.

    • Lia

      lol. I wonder what they would do to the poor kid lol

  • Mickey

    These are people who believe that tattoos make them beautiful just as others believe that make up makes them beautiful. I don’t agree with the size nor the lettering, but the reasoning is beautiful.

    • :))))))))

      lay off the crack dude, the reasoning is not beautiful. It’s more like short end of the shit stick reasoning. “OMG we just meet but i’ll let you tattoo your name on my face in 5 inch letters cause i juuuust lovvve youuu kayy : D “

  • Lia

    50 bucks say they break up!

  • Lia

    if you look at the background in the first pic she is at kids park! POOR POOR KIDS!!

  • Lia

    I’m glad he doesn’t have all the teeth things!

  • Anonymous.

    Guys, don’t hate on her. It shows how dedicated she is to her relationship. True love. <3

  • DJ

    A Formerly very-attractive girl …. I just don’t get it ….

  • Z

    what a good kid

  • Etchasketches

    Wow. Who are you people to judge what someone else finds beautiful, meaningful or attractive? All of you need to grow up.
