Girlfriends around the world right now are quaking. Why? Because influencer Ana Stanskovsky has managed to find a way to officially make them all look significantly inadequate in the romance department. On Monday 6 November 2023, Stanskovsky shared a video on Instagram with her 114,000 followers which showed her getting a sizeable tattoo on her forehead of her boyfriend Kevin’s name.

While the thought of getting any man’s name tattooed on my forehead makes me personally feel mega queasy and unwell, Stanskovsky was clearly thrilled with her decision, smiling at the camera and showing off her seriously large new ink.
Understandably, netizens had quite a lot to say about her decision. One commentator noted: “That’s literally the stupidest shit I’ve ever seen!” That being said, the overwhelming consensus in the video’s comments section was that there was no way that the tattoo was real. And look, without trying to sound too cool, I’ve had a few tats myself and even I struggle to believe that the clip is legitimate.
For one, I don’t know if Stanskovsky genuinely just has the most impressive pain threshold known to womankind, but holy crap did she really not finch at all during the tattooing process? And then there’s the whole tattoo gun looking a whole lot more like just a really powerful felt tip pen. Either way, a majority of individuals in the comments were not buying it one bit.
One user wrote: “This is obviously fake. There is no needle coming down in the close-ups, just the plastic part of the gun against her skin. Also, there is no redness, no swelling, no bleeding, and no wiping of ink/blood during the process.”
“People getting annoyed like ‘stupidest thing I’ve ever seen?!’… Girl the tattoo gun was literally a biro. She’s having a laugh relax,” another stated.
In a follow-up video, the influencer strongly defended her decision, stating that every time she looked in the mirror she was “in love.” Stanskovsky even went on to say that she thought that “if you really love someone you’ve just got to show it, you’ve got to prove it. I think if your girlfriend doesn’t want to tattoo your name on her face, you just need to find yourself a new girlfriend.”

Now, I think I can speak on behalf of a lot of women when I say that I’ll get a tattoo of a man’s name on my forehead when the male species collectively get their act together. Okay, hun?
Seemingly out to debunk Stanskovsky’s tattoo, celebrity tattooist Kevin Paul spoke to Metro about his thoughts on the matter and categorically stated that he believes the tattoo to be “100% fake.” Elaborating further, Paul noted: “There’s no needle actually going into the skin. Her skin would be raised and welted. All the pores would be raised up. You’d also see ink and blood dripping down her face.”
Fake or not, I hope Kevin’s girlfriend’s stunt doesn’t give any other men around the world the idea that their partners need to be branded to show their love. Keep dreaming, babes.
