A woman has FOUR eyebrows after a botched cosmetic tattoo procedure in Thailand

A woman has been left with four eyebrows after a botched cosmetic tattoo procedure in Thailand.
Nipapron Meeking, 32, was horrified to see two extra arches on her forehead drawn with permanent cosmetic ink at a hole-in-the-wall clinic in eastern Thailand’s Rayong province.
The furious customer confronted the bumbling tattoo artist, who reportedly promised to erase the £35 brows.

But the store closed the next day and the owners could not be reached.
Meeking had to live with the unusual features for a year before a cosmetic tattoo artist came forward and offered to fix them for free.
She said: “I remember planning a trip with my friends and I wanted new eyebrows to look pretty.
“A friend suggested a shop to me. After the procedure I looked in the mirror and was speechless.
“Not long after what happened the store closed and I don’t know where the owner is now.
“I had a terrible time with four eyebrows on my forehead but luckily I found this new tattoo artist.”
After living with the unusual features for a year, a tattoo artist approached Meeking and offered to remove them for free (pictured after removal).
Tattoo artist Pattawee Phumkasem, 32, said: “After seeing Nipaporn’s condition I knew I had to help her. It normally costs £350 but I’m willing to do it for free.
“It will take me three months to give her new and beautiful eyebrows. I have to remove the old ink and wait for it to fade before outlining the new eyebrows.”
Nipapron went to three different clinics to get rid of the unwanted tattoo on her face, but the marks remained clear.
She said: “I didn’t know what to do and mostly stayed indoors because it really took a toll on my confidence.
“I also went to different artists but they couldn’t fix it. With this new artist I can finally live a normal life.”
