Eyeball tattoo leaves alt-model blind for 3 weeks
24-year-old alt-model, Amber Luke reveals that she went blind for three weeks after getting her eyeballs tattooed.
AUSTRALIA — 24-year-old alt-model, Amber Luke has spent more than $25,000 on modifying her body, and she recently revealed that she went blind for three weeks after inking her eyes late last year.
Dubbed 'Blue-Eyes White Dragon' by friends, Amber claims, "I can't even begin to describe to you what the feeling was like, the best thing I can give you is once the eyeball was penetrated with the ink, it felt like the tattoo artist grabbed 10 shards of glass and rubbed it in my eye."
Amber, who developed an addiction to tattoos at the age of 16, said, "unfortunately, my artist went too deep into my eyeball — If your eyeball procedure's done correctly, you're not supposed to go blind at all. I was blind for three weeks. That was pretty brutal."
Amber, who has had her tongue split, a silicone implant in her eye, a boob job, cheek and lip fillers and pointed implants placed in her ears says the eye tattoo was totally "worth it."
She said every morning she wakes up, looks at her eyeballs and is happy because blue is her favorite color.
Before you judge, Amber has one request, "We should all try and take a step back and wonder how creative and passionate that person must be to express themselves like that — instead of shunning someone, look at their beauty – I mean come on, it's 2020."
