An 8-month-old review of Kat Von D Tattoo Liner on has just gone viral.

Last June, Shelby Pagan, a registered nurse from Hawaii, was parked on the side of the road calling for roadside assistance when a distracted driver struck her going 89 kph.  She was taken by ambulance to the hospital where she remained in emergency for eight hours. In an Instagram post, she said she considered herself “lucky to have walked away from the accident relatively unhurt and alive”.

When people commented on how good her Kat Von D eyeliner still looked in the photo, she decided to leave a review. “My mascara was running down my face from crying,” wrote Pagan. “But not my tattoo eyeliner.”

Now, almost a year later, Twitter user @guadalahari was shopping for eyeliner and came across Pagan’s review. She “took a picture in her neck brace I am deceased,” tweeted Lahari.  


Others have taken to Twitter to share similar stories. “Honey I can 100% relate,” tweeted Madeleine Dunne, attaching a picture of her flawless liner post-bike accident. 

Now we know what the liner can withstand, but here’s hoping no one else ever has to experience it.
