Lesya’s Facebook profile is flooded with photos of her face tattoo.
“It's a symbol of our eternal devotion. I'd like him to tattoo every inch of my body," she said, according to The Daily Mail.

He addressed concerns that the face tattoo may have not been the wisest decision, especially after getting it following a first date.
“I know that there are people who are terrified that Lesya has made a rash decision that she’ll regret horribly, but sometimes the best decisions are the ones you make in an instant with your heart rather than the ones long-debated in your mind,” the friend said.
