According to UPI.com, Romeo and Juliet may have some competition in the crazy first date category.

Lesya fell head over heels in love with tattoo artists Ruslan Toumaniantz, and, just one day after meeting him, had him ink his name across her face.

Lesya–who has begun using Tourmaniantz’s last name, met her new beau online in January and the two agreed to meet up in Moscow.

The date was apparently a smashing success–not only did Lesya allow Toumaniantz to tattoo his fist name in 5-inch Gothic script across both of her cheeks, the couple became engaged after just one week, on January 20.

“It’s a symbol of our eternal devotion. I’d like him to tattoo every inch of my body,” Lesya said.

“Their plans for a life together include her learning to tattoo while she  also gets the full-body ink that she’s always dreamed of,” an unnamed friend  told the Huffington Post UK. “And of course a family.”

Toumaniantz has a bit of a history with dramatic face art–he made something  of a name for himself when he tattooed 56 stars on the face of 18-year-old  Kimberley Vlaeminckin in a Belgian tattoo shop in 2009. Vlaeminckin initially  she asked for just three, but Tourmaniantz kept on going after she fell asleep  in the chair.

After swearing to sue Toumaniantz for the cost of their removal, Vlaeminckin later told Dutch TV she had indeed asked for all 56 stars  and instead lied about falling asleep because she feared her father’s  reaction.

Here’s to hoping Lesya–who’s tattoos aren’t exactly subtle–experiences no  such cold feet.
