Thursday Tattoos

A Vancouver fitness model is claiming a tattoo artist ghosted her after her Disney tattoo got infected and turned her life into a living nightmare. Now, she just wants someone to help her out.

The model, who goes by “Franky” professionally, reached out to Daily Hive after the ordeal and shared pictures of the infected tattoo. She also detailed her communications with the artist who she feels left her hanging.

As someone who has many prior tattoos, she knew something was wrong when things weren’t healing like she was used to, even just the day after the work was done. Franky is now hoping someone out there would be willing to touch up what was supposed to be a lovely Disney-inspired tattoo, but she isn’t looking for charity.

After the work was complete, the artist put on a transparent adhesive barrier meant to protect tattoos while they’re healing. The day after, Franky said “something was off.”

“I’m in excruciating pain that does not feel like a tattoo-healing kind of pain.”

That’s when she decided to reach out to her artist, Colt Obst, who goes by “Canadian Patch King.” Franky told him that she thought the tattoo was infected.

“He said, ‘Oh no, it’s not infected. It’s this or that.'”
Franky, in response, said she couldn’t walk. Around this time, her leg was the size of a balloon due to the apparent infection. Franky received medical care at an emergency room and spoke to the on-call doctor, who immediately identified it as a “classical case” of infection. She had to be on a “strong course of antibiotics for 10 days.”
She lost so much ink in the infection the tattoo will need to be touched up.
