A Russian graduate student named Lesya Toumaniantz has allowed her boyfriend – a controversial artist named Rouslan Toumaniantz – to tattoo his name across her face.

Making this even more of an unusual move? The pair had known each other for 24 hours when the ink went down!

“It’s a symbol of our eternal devotion. I’d like him to tattoo every inch of my body,” Toumaniantz said on Facebook, adding that she plans to marry her very new beau.


The tattoo is of the name “Ruslan,” written across both her cheeks in Gothic letters, five inches tall.

Somewhere, even Mike Tyson and the Mitt Romney face tattoo guy are shaking their heads over this decision.

What do you think of it, readers? Would you ever tattoo the name of someone you just met across your mug in giant letters?
