A tattoo artist has taken the excitement of the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard trial to a new level – by honoring Depp’s attorney with new ink.
In a clip posted to TikTok on Wednesday, Jazzmyn Wollfe, 27, showed the self-painted outline of attorney Camille Vasquez’s wavy hair and power suit, with the word “Objection” underneath it.
But many of Wolffe’s 83,000 followers were quick to ask, “Why?”
“Represents strength, self-confidence, the talking and the uncompromising search for truth and justice,” argued Wollfe to a commenter.
However, Wollfe went on to tell the Post that she survived an abusive relationship and was “blown away” by Vasquez’s cross-examination of Depp’s ex-wife Heard.
“What I saw was a strong woman standing her ground and doing everything in her power to bring justice to what she believes is a victim of abuse and to shed light on a type of domestic violence that society often seems to ignore or completely refute,” said Wollfe von Vasquez, who made closing remarks in Friday’s $50 million trial, suggesting Heard — not Depp — was the “abuser.”
However, the Ontario native made it clear that her admiration for Vasquez doesn’t necessarily mean she’s star above star.
“My admiration for her diligence and her demeanor is out of proportion to my opinion of Amber or Johnny or anyone whose personal story I can’t speak to,” she said.
While the artist told The Post that she received some encouraging comments, the rationale for her tattoo on TikTok wasn’t good enough for dozens of trolls.
“Okay, but why did you tattoo it without her eyes?” one user asked on the app
“I did it without making it a portrait of her face because it was more about the overall message/meaning of it,” Wolfe replied.
“Plus she’s a beautiful, beautiful girl with an absolutely badass energy, so respectfully why not,” she clapped to another hater.
“Wow you’re going to regret it so much,” another user surmised, to which the creator replied, “I’ve been getting tattoos for 10 years and I don’t regret a single one lol…what it means to me personally, it will always be relevant.”
However, the original TikTok caused so much uproar that Wollfe posted additional videos sharing some of the hateful messages she received.
“I’ve seen absolutely horrific comments from strangers telling me to kill myself that they hope the tattoo gets infected,” she told the Post.
“For if you ever feel bad about your life, remember that I exist,” she added. “It’s presumptuous and frankly disturbing.”
