Lesya Toumaniantz’s radical facial tattoo has recently gone viral, posted on thousands of Facebook pages with captions like “next level face tattoo” from Russia.
The real story behind this tatoo:
About a month ago, Rouslan Toumaniantz, a well known and sometimes notorious Belgium-based tattoo artist, and Lesya, a designer living at the time in Saransk, a city in central Russia started talking via chat (Rouslan speaks fluent Russian) and realized they had a lot in common, and quickly began falling head over heels in love.
About a week ago they met in person in Moscow and decided to get married — their plans for their life together include her learning to tattoo, apprenticing under her husband-to-be, while she also gets the full-body ink that she’s always dreamed of — and of course a family.
Her new facial tattoo that’s getting all the attention, a huge commitment for both a person with limited experience as a publicly modified person and for a new relationship screams out the intensity of their commitment to their new life, reads “RUSLAN”, the name of her betrothed.
