Lesya Toumaniantz from Saransk, Russia, allowed Rouslan Toumaniantz to sign 'Ruslan' over her face in giant Gothic script on the day they met
The pair - who'd met on an online chat room - say they quickly fell 'head over heels in love' and soon after met in Moscow, Russia, where they decided to get married.

"It's a symbol of our eternal devotion. I'd like him to tattoo every inch of my body," she said.
Now, Lesya who has already taken Toumaniantz’s name despite only being engaged since January 20, is learning to tattoo under his tutorship.
"Their plans for a life together include her learning to tattoo while she also gets the full-body ink that she’s always dreamed of and of course a family," said a friend of Toumaniantz.
He added: "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."
Friends of Lesya have flooded her with messages praising the artwork and how beautiful she looks.
"You must be so happy that you can wear that tattoo. Enjoy it. It looks great," wrote Ralf Bieler.
"Sooo beautiful. even the style of the name fits your face well," wrote another.
Mr Toumaniantz's handiwork hit the headlines in 2009 after he tattooed 56 stars across an 18-year-old's face, who then accused him of inking her when she was asleep.
