I wanted a tattoo from a legendary artist

A WOMAN who asked for a tattoo by legendary artist Freida Kahlo was shocked when it looked more like an alien.

Gabby Lamb took to TikTok to reveal her ink, which she received eight years ago.

The design was intended to resemble the Mexican painter famous for her self-portraits before her death in 1954.

She had shown the image to her tattoo artist in hopes they could recreate her iconic look, which Gabby described as “dark and tormented”.

However, what she ended up getting was far from a work of art – with Freida’s features disfigured and shaky.

The TikTok user captioned the final colorway “what I got” as users reacted in the comments.

One wrote: “That was a hate crime,” a second added: “If Frieda was goth that’s a look.”

Meanwhile, a third wrote: “So sorry and the petals with 0% detail omg.”

Another user asked Gabby if the odd portrait design was ratified before it was inked into her skin.

She replied, “Yeah, and honestly it looked really good and then he said ‘I’m going to add some shading.’ And I was like okay.”

But although she recognized the state of the bad tattoo as soon as it was done, she admitted she’s “in love” with it now.

The Sun previously shared a collection of terrifying superfan tattoos that would put anyone off meeting their heroes.

It came after a Miley Cyrus fanatic was forced to raise £6,000 to remove 29 of his ink after admitting it prevented him from finding a girlfriend.
