Kimberley Vlaeminck, 18, who claimed she’d asked for three small stars but fell asleep during the procedure and woke up with a whole galaxy on her face (See: Tattoo teenager wanted 3 not 56 Stars!).
But she has now confessed she knew exactly what tattoo parlour owner Rouslan Toumaniantz was doing but changed her mind later.
She said she lied because her father was “furious”.
Vlaeminck only made her admission after being caught on a hidden camera by Belgium TV show De Jakhalzen.
She said she knew about all the stars all along and the only thing she hadn’t been sure of were the stars on her nose.
She is now set to lose her £9,000 compensation claim.
