Nova Scotia parlour ordered to pay nearly $9,000 for tattoo typo
Marie Huckle wanted to get a lasting tribute to a recently deceased friend, and decided to tattoo a phrase that held special meaning, signalling they would one day meet again.
Instead, the tattoo artist left out a letter, and she ended up with “See You at the Cossroads” on her ribcage.
“This had been a traumatic experience, and it’s embarrassing … I just don’t want it any more,” said Ms. Huckle, 23, who has spent many painful hours under a laser trying to erase the botched memorial.
