Getting tattooed can be a painful experience depending on which part of your skin you want ink burned into for all eternity, but few people know what it’s actually like to stick a tattoo needle into your eye ball.

As per the Mirror, 24-year-old Amber Luke from New South Wales, Australia, had already spent £14k on a boob jop, lip job, 200 tattoos, having her tongue split, earlobes stretched and other modifications before deciding she wanted to turn her eyes blue.
Amber AKA ‘Dragon Girl’ AKA ‘The Blue Eyed White Dragon’ describes the experience:
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.
That happened four times per eye, that was pretty brutal. Unfortunately, my artist went too deep into my eyeball.
Not most people’s idea of a good time, but to each their own. If someone wants to go through the pain and suffering of getting their eyes tattooed then that’s fine and dandy if it makes them happy.
Except it turns out the actual procedure wasn’t the worst part – Amber ended up going BLIND for 3 weeks:
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.
Holy shit – imagine being blind for 3 weeks. You can’t read, watch TV, go on the internet, work, walk, run, exercise, at least not with a lot of assistance. What did she even do with herself all that time to keep from going insane?
What if her vision never came back and she ended up permanently blind, all over a dumb decision to get her eye balls tattooed blue?
Luckily that didn’t happen, and Amber says she has ‘no regrets’ over tattooing her eye balls:
I’m not worried what I’m going to look like when I’m older, I understand that everyone ages and I don’t think anyone will be looking too “pretty” at 70 years old… At the end of the day, it’s the only thing I can take to my grave with me.
Fair play to her.
