A Belgian girl is taking her tattoo complaints to court after getting a bit more than she bargained for.

The way 18-year-old Kimberley Vlaeminck tell its, she asked for three small star tattoos near her eye. She fell asleep in the chair and when she woke up her face resembled the ceiling of a planetarium.

The man behind the pen, tattoo artist Rouslan Toumaniantz, says Vlaeminck has a case of the regrets.

"She agreed, but when her father saw it, the trouble started," he told a Belgian paper, Het Laatste Nieuws.  "She was awake and looked in the mirror several times as the procedure was being done."

Vlaeminck plans to sue and says she'll get most of the 56 stars removed.
