Was she expecting a masterpiece tattoo paying merely 50 pounds/80 bucks? LOLLOLLOLLOLLOLLOL
And what business does a teen have getting a tattoo of a woman she probably glamorizes purely because she's pretty? *Judging*

Teenager's warning over rogue tattooist after paying £50 for abysmal Marilyn Monroe design

  • Teenager estimates it will take £300 to cover up 'monstrosity'
  • Has set up a Facebook page to warn others of tattooist Dave Stewart

By Anna Edwards

PUBLISHED: 11:32 EST, 3 January 2013 | UPDATED: 21:47 EST, 3 January 2013

A teenage girl's dream to pay homage to her idol Marilyn Monroe with a tattoo of her has ended in a nightmare - after the finished artwork looked like a 'blow up sex doll'.

Siobhan Fields, 16, paid £50 for the image of Marilyn to be inked on her left arm but said the end result was simply a 'monstrosity'.

The heartbroken hairdresser said tattooist Dave Stewart - who does not have a council licence to operate - originally agreed to refund her money but then blocked her on Facebook.

She has now reported him to police and today warned other potential victims to steer clear of the tattoo artist.

Siobhan, of Burnbank, Hamilton, Scotland, said: 'It's horrible. It's so embarrassing. I've had to go out and buy loads of long-sleeved shirts because I don't want anyone to see it.

'I love Marilyn Monroe. She was absolutely beautiful - but this tattoo makes her look more like a blow-up doll.

'Her mouth is just a black blob, the eyes are circles, her eyes are two dots.

'She has black hair, the eyebrows are all wrong and there are wobbly lines everywhere.'

Siobhan's ordeal began after she found Dave's 'Intenze Tattoos' on Facebook and - impressed by the artwork on display - booked a session.

She said: 'Alarm bells should have started ringing when he said he would do it round at my house.

'I showed him to the picture of Marilyn and he seemed very confident that he could match it.

'I booked an appointment and during the session I didn't look at my arm because I'm not good with pain so I was just closing my eyes and gritted my teeth.

'When it was finished, after about 90 minutes, I looked in the mirror and just felt total shock. But he was quite an intimidating guy, with tattoos all over his face so I didn't want to confront him at the time.

'Then I felt that I had just paid £50 for this guy to basically disfigure me for life.

 

'Later on I contacted him and asked if he could refund my money and at first he agreed but then he blocked me on Facebook and cut off all contact.

'It's just one sorry looking mess and now I have to live with it.

'It's going to cost around £300 to have it covered up by a proper tattoo artist.'

Mr Stewart was unreachable for comment today. The Facebook page for Dave's Intenze Tattoos has been taken down.

A spokesman for South Lanarkshire Council said: 'Intenze Tattoos does not hold a licence within the South Lanarkshire Council area.

'The Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982 (Licensing of Skin Piercing and Tattooing) Order 2006 gives Local Authorities the power to license individuals who carry out skin piercing or tattooing activities as a business.

'The Order lays out a number of requirements aimed at reducing, if not removing, risks to public health from these practices.

'As well as setting out criteria that operators must adhere to, the Act also prohibits the tattooing of people under the age of 18 years and restricts the activity of skin piercing on people under the age of 16 years unless accompanied by a person with parental rights.

'A person carrying out the activity of skin piercing or tattooing without a licence shall be guilty of an offence and liable, on summary conviction, to a fine.'

A Strathclyde Police spokesman said: 'We would urge anyone considering body art, including tattooing, to thoroughly check the artist's credentials.

'Artists operate under a local authority-granted licence which should be displayed.'

Other celebrities to have Marilyn Monroe tattoos inked on them include I'm A Celebrity... contestant Helen Flanagan and Megan Fox - but the star has undergone surgery to remove the 'negative character' from her arm.

I wouldn't have turned over my money and body based on the quality of his tattoos.

Thats why you research before you let anybody tattoo on you. Not all cheap tattoo artists do bad work though.

This is 2013, correct?

Why didn't she just Google the artist before sitting her remedial rear in his chair.

Is that asking too much of people?
