Woman leaves tattoo shop in garage in full inking after being shamed

She told TikTokers why she was still paying the tattoo artist

A woman has claimed she left a tattoo studio before her last tattoo was almost done after being ashamed of the man who tattooed her.

Dalina, who goes by @senoracabrone on TikTok, spoke about the ordeal on the social media platform.

She explained how she originally met the man who shamed her at the gym.

“He approached me specifically because of my tattoos,” she told her followers.

Dalina said the man gave her his card and she decided on a tattoo she wanted to do with him as an artist.

However, it turned out to be “the worst tattoo experience of [her] life.”

The tattoo was on her stomach, so she was shirtless during the procedure.

Dalina explained, “He just starts talking about my imbalance, calling my boobs ‘boobs.’

“But at the last drop, I turn around and he goes, ‘Ah, I get why I see you in the gym all the time. You have rear rollers.

At this point, Dalina said she “got up and I paid it and left” – but she wasn’t sure if that reaction was overly dramatic or not.

At the end of the video, the TikToker paused before asking, “Am I crazy?”

From the reaction on social media, it seems not. The video has been viewed 15.4 million times, and thousands of people rushed to offer their support in the comments.

“You’re not dramatic at all. The fact that he made you take your shirt off for a tattoo of your stomach,” one said, adding a red flag emoji.

“I’m SO sorry this happened to you. My jaw dropped. You look AMAZING,” said another, “So inappropriate.”

One of the commentators asked why Dalina paid the tattoo artist. She responded by explaining that she was 5ft 1in tall while the tattoo artist was over 6ft tall. She said they were also in a garage he uses for a studio, where the only exit was the one he had to open manually.

She said: “Who’s to say he wouldn’t get angry and maybe physically if I were to, say, get up and try to short his money from him?

“So I asked him to finish the plan and I was like ‘yeah, my husband needs me’ and I got up and left.”

While the support was likely welcomed by the TikToker, she explained that she still needed someone to fix the “huge outline” on her belly.

In a later video, Dalina said she had received several offers of help and that a female artist would pick up where the male tattoo artist left off for free.
