Tattoo fail leaves devastated TikToker in tears

Bali, Indonesia - A tattoo gone wrong is every ink-enthusiast's nightmare, and that's exactly what happened to OnlyFans model Tia Kabir on a recent trip to Indonesia.

In a TikTok with almost 3 million views, the 19-year-old Australian tearfully recalled her drama. She had wanted to get a special tattoo during her Bali vacation and settled on the words "Angel Energy," which were meant to be inked just above the crook of her elbow.

"I've always wanted something powerful such as Angel Energy on my arm as I believe through everything I have been through to becoming the influencer I am now, I can leave a good spirit imprinted on my body" she told the Daily Mail.

But her chosen tattoo artist was obviously having a bad day and made one fatal error: instead of "Angel Energy," Tia found herself stuck with "Energy Angel" on her arm.

It was actually third time unlucky for the devastated model. "The size was incorrect the first time, second was the spacing and then the third it somehow swapped the other way," she explained.

TikTok chimes in with support and gentle jokes

Tia's fear of needles had distracted her from noticing the mistake while it was happening, and so she was hit with an almighty shock when the buzzing stopped.

The result left her in a flood of tears, sobbing as she showed off the failed artwork to her 89,000 followers on TikTok. The one consolation is that the whole ordeal only set Tia back about $90.

Meanwhile, one user opted to console her with some wordplay: "sending you all my Energy you Angel."
