Posted March 24, 2020 13:02:55It’s been five years since a woman’s pelvises were removed from her vagina by an unknown tattoo artist.
And now, her story is being told to the world by a local television station in Peru.
The woman, known only as ‘Jade’, is one of three women in the country who say they have been tattooed by the same artist for the last five years.
The other two women, who both chose not to be identified, were both in their 30s.
The first, Jade, was tattooed in 2016.
The second, who is not Jade, said she was in the process of having her pelvis removed when the artist told her to tattoo the words “gas in her pelvis”.
The third woman, who did not want to be named, said the tattoo took place last September.
She says she has not heard from the tattoo artist since.
She is now the owner of the local tattoo parlour.
The women are also suing the tattooist and asking for compensation.
The tattoo artist told the newspaper Jade was told she would be a good candidate for the job because of her size, the local newspaper El Nacional reported.
The court case is expected to last for a month.
