32-Year-Old Woman Lives With 4 Eyebrows For A Year After Tattoo Procedure Goes Awry
A woman in Thailand had to live with two pairs of eyebrows for a year after a cosmetic procedure she paid for went inexplicably wrong
Last year, 32-year-old Nipapron Meeking paid THB1,500 (RM184) to have her eyebrows tattooed at a beauty centre in Rayong province, eastern Thailand.
However, instead of the beautifully-drawn, well-defined pair of eyebrows one would expect, Nipapron was horrified to find that she had two extra arches drawn on her forehead in permanent cosmetic ink.
"After the procedure, I looked in the mirror and was speechless," she said, as quoted by The Mirror.
The furious customer confronted the beauty centre's staff about the extra eyebrows, and all they did was promise her that they would fix the matter the next day
However, when Nipapron returned, she was shocked to discover that the shop had closed down and the owners could not be contacted.
She lived with four eyebrows for over a year, trying to get other beauticians to fix the problem, but to no avail.
According to The Sun, she said the botched procedure affected her confidence and led her to spend most of her time at home.
In a turn of events, with luck finally on her side, a kind tattoo artist learnt of her plight and reached out to her last week to have them fixed for free
The 32-year-old tattoo artist, Pattawee Phumkasem, said, "After seeing Nipapron's condition, I knew I had to help her. It normally costs THB15,000 (RM1,850) to erase them, but I'm willing to do it for free."
After several visits to Pattawee's studio, Nipapron's fake eyebrows are now less visible and she is more confident to go outside.
"I had a terrible time living with four eyebrows on my forehead, but luckily I found this new tattoo artist," she said.
"With the help of this new artist, I can finally live a normal life."
