Three months ago Eugenia Bebis went into Mystic Tattoo Art and Body Piercing in Chicago looking to get the White Sox’s logo tattooed on her outer thigh.
Yesterday she filed a lawsuit against the tattoo parlor and artist Micah St. John because … well, he put the logo on backwards.
In the suit the 20-year-old Bebis alleges that she “has had to undergo extensive laser tattoo removal procedures, will require further procedures in the future, and will also require a different, larger tattoo to cover up the laser-faded backwards tattoo at issue.”
She’s seeking damages of $50,000, which seems like an awful lot when the whole thing really boils down to someone saying, “I intended to make a big mistake, but you guys screwed up and turned it into an even bigger mistake.”
Plus, it looks great in the mirror, right?
