There’s always a risk with getting a celebrity portrait tattoo. They might stir up controversy, share disappointing opinions via Twitter rant, or transfer to a rival team. In this man’s case, the celebrity didn’t want to be inked on their body.
This man had got pornstar Mia Khalifa's face, and soon-to-finish her full chest, tattooed on his thigh. Safe to say, she is less than pleased about it.
Khalifa reposted a photo of the freshly inked tattoo with the caption: "STOP GETTING TATTOOS OF ME. This is not by any means flattering, it is OUTRIGHT CREEPY.”
She added, "Also, I had braces for way too long to accept that uneven picket fence you're calling a smile as decent work, my teeth are fucking perfect.”
To further beat it into the man, she wrote, "Don't finish it, save your money and cover this up with a tribal symbol or some other trashy tattoo you obviously already have if you're willing to put A COMPLETE STRANGERS FACE ON YOUR BODY YOU PSYCHO. Jesus Christ."
Talk about your celebrity idols disappointing you.
However, she had received some of backlash on Instagram, when followers called her out for being “unappreciative” and “ungrateful.”
One user wrote, "The fact he did this should be flattering and convince you that you are on the right path if someone believes in you so much they are willing to tattoo themselves in your honour. If you act like this to all your fans that go above and beyond then you should quit the work you're doing now and pursue something else that's not so public."
Another said, "Geez these people who love you want to get tattoos of you. Who are you to stop them ???? You don't deserve fans like these if you don't appreciate them."
The tattoo artist, Diego Ovalle, stood up for his client, writing, "I'm sorry if you do not like it @miakhalifa but my client is fucking happy !!"
Diego Ovalle works at Black Tattoo Studio in Funza, Colombia.
But is his client still happy after Mia Khalifa demolished his spirits? We aren’t too sure.
Should Mia have been grateful, or do you agree with her that it is “outright creepy”? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
