Hey, I just met you and this is crazy, but can I tattoo my name on your face?

I bet Ruslan Toumaniantz wasn’t expecting to get permission to lay down ink on his girlfriend Lesya’s face less than 24 hours after first meeting her in person. Because well, why would you? But if you’re Lesya, you do it for love. The duo met in a chat room, fell in love, and met in person in Moscow. Less than a day later, Ruslan – a tattoo artist – inked her face. Lesya sees it as a sign of her commitment (they are now engaged).

It’s fortunate that she sees it that way because the tattoo isn’t small and concealable. As you can see in the above photo, it covers the whole bottom half of her face. It’s a bit aggressive. Besides the visual impact, I would guess that getting so much ink had to hurt. A lot.

‘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,’ said a friend of Toumaniantz.
He added: ‘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.

I don’t even have words.

I haven’t seen a ton of Balrog tattoos, but I still think this design is one of the best.  It definitely captures the smoke and flame. Jake showed off this masterpiece on Twitter, and it was inked by Julio Rodriguez at Hope Gallery Tattoo.
