People have even accused the mother of setting a bad example for her three-year-old and 15-year-old sons.

Though she says there’s a misconception that “only crazy people tattoo their faces” — which she says is wrong.

Despite the negativity, Valerie – who has nearly 69,000 followers on Instagram – is proud of her ink.

So much so that she is eager to get more tattoos – including her mother’s date of birth on her face.

She explained: “It’s the way I express myself.”

The mother – who describes her look as “a modern day Harley Quinn” – the Joker’s colorful henchman in Batman – made a very different look before covering herself in ink.

Amazing images show what appears to be a completely different person with no tattoos on her face – she also has hair of a different color.

Although Valerie says she wouldn’t want it any other way because “it’s a look I’m comfortable with.”

But Valerie isn’t alone in her passion for insane amounts of tattooing.

A mother of seven children inked every inch of her face with roses, hearts and even an England flag.

But the 45-year-old insists: “I like the way I am. You only live once. Do what you want.”
