A woman was left mortified after the star sign tattoo she intended on getting ended up being nothing like the design she wanted.
Lydia Sawyer headed to the tattoo parlour and paid £60 to get a detailed lion tattoo to represent her Leo star sign.
The 23-year-old, from Bournemouth, Dorset, requested the ink behind her ear, which meant she was unable to keep her eye on the process.

But in a viral video, which gained over 48,000 times, Lydia reveals the result turned out nothing like the intricate design she wanted.
She said she got the "shock of her life" as the artist had left her with a doodle-like drawing.
”Don’t go for a walk-in tattoo just because you’re bored,” Lydia warned.
”I went to the tattoo place for a walk-in appointment. It didn’t seem dodgy, but they didn’t ask me to fill in any consent forms or ask for my ID.
”I’m pretty sure they would just tattoo anyone. The artist said he couldn’t do my design as detailed as I showed him, but he would do the best he could.
”It was behind my ear so I couldn’t really see it. But over the next few weeks, I began to hate it."
Lydia is now desperate to remove the mishap but has to fork out £320 on laser removal before covering it up with more ink.
It isn’t the first time a tattoo has caused her stress, having previously had her ex-boyfriend's initials inked behind her other ear.
She added: “I went to go get it covered up a few weeks ago, as I was going to get another covered up on the other side. It was my ex-boyfriend's initials.
"I got that covered up, but he said the lines on this one (the lion) were too dark. I had to look into getting it removed first.
“They said I would need a few sessions to lighten it up at £40 a session. I’ll need around eight sessions of laser.
“But it’s so painful and sensitive on this area of skin so I'm leaving it at the moment.”
However, Lydia approached the blunder with a sense on humour as she shared the clip on TikTok where hundreds of viewers shared their thoughts in the comments.
