Demi Lovato slammed for being a “drunk scumbag” by tattoo artist

Singer Demi Lovato took to Instagram a few weeks back to tell fans she was finally getting an ill-advised "vagina tattoo" covered up, but it seems not everyone was happy with her decision.

The tattoo, on her left forearm, was apparently meant to look like a pair of lips, but as with many drunken mistakes, it didn't turn out quite as planned:

Earlier this month Demi revealed she had finally had the tatt covered over with another image of a gothic-style rose.

Now the tattoo artist behind the original design has slammed Demi for being unappreciative, a "scumbag" and for "pissing" all over her toilet seat.

Two comments on Demi's Instagram post from earlier this month were uncovered, both from the the tattoo artist in question, Ashley McMullen.

"Cool post @ddlovato, thanks for getting the tattoo covered up I did for free that you specifically asked for. Not to mention you didn't even have the courtesy to offer me any money in the first place," wrote Ashley.

"You pissed all over our toilet seat and you made a fool of yourself. What a shame that people look up to you. The tattoo you covered it with kinda sucks too. Looks like you might forever be a goon."

At the end of the comment were the hashtags "#demilovato #scumbag #turd #claimstobesober #drankallthebeer #peepeetoiletseat #yousuck." Ouch.

In a second comment, Ashley lashed out at Demi again, saying, "[H]onestly you were acting like a full time slob…You never even gave me a shout out when I dealt with your drunk ass."

Demi seemed unfazed by the outlash, taking to Twitter this week to post a series of emojis that were most definitely a dig at Ashley's claims:

Whatever the truth behind this story, we're glad to see the back of that "vagina" tattoo…
