Sarah Blackley from Christchurch, New Zealand, said on Facebook that she had paid $400 for a Cinderella and Snow White tattoo but the artist drew Cinderella clutching a knife and Snow White with no eyeballs.
She shared photos of the botched tattoo work on Facebook, asking people to share and help get the business shut down. She wrote:
‘I recently got this “tattoo” and I am so utterly disgusted and embarrassed. $400 for what?! I refuse to wear short sleeves.
I am a tattoo lover as most of you know, this is on my skin forever,’ she wrote.’I put my trust in him to give me Cinderella and Snow White. I have tried to contact him [the tattooer] prior to this post but no reply. I know how bad this is all I ask is no snarky comments please just share and help these guys get shut down.’
The spokesperson also said she had requested a ‘zombie princess’ sleeve tattoo – not a ‘standard Disney-themed’ one.
Sarah Blackley later took to her Facebook to apologize about asking for people to help her shut the business down. She wrote:
“it was not my intentions to ruin the business and even though I said it, I regret it and apologise for what has happened to the business. I mean I’m still upset about my arm but they’re losing business which isn’t fair.” A staff member at the studio says Ms Blackley’s partner made contact with him.
