Man tattoos name on new girlfriend's face

A man has tattooed his name across his girlfriend's face less than 24 hours after they first met.

According to London's Daily Mail, Ruslan Toumaniantz inked his name in Gothic script on his new Russian lover Lesya Toumaniantz.

The pair, who met online in Moscow, told the Mail they planned to marry.

The couple said they quickly fell "head over heels in love" and that the tattoo was a symbol of "eternal devotion".

"I'd like him to tattoo every inch of my body," she said.

The tattoo-mad former art student whose sister is also a tattoo artist added that above her eyebrow he had written, All For Love.

And now Lesya who has already taken Ruslan's name despite only being engaged since January 20 is learning to tattoo under his tutorship, according to the Daily Mail article.

A friend told the Mail that Lesya had always dreamed of "full-body ink and a family".

"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," the friend said.

Messages on Lesya's Facebook page included:

"You must be so happy that you can wear that tattoo. Enjoy it. It looks great," one said.

"Sooo beautiful. even the style of the name fits your face well," wrote another.

Mr Toumaniantz's "art" made headlines in 2009 when he tattooed 56 stars across an 18-year-old's face who then lied and accused him of inking her when she was asleep.
