People Are Actually Permanently Tattooing Their Eyeballs Different Colors (Photos)
There are only so many places on the body to get a tattoo.
Youd think by now we’ve seen it all, but, youd be wrong.
A new and terrifying trend is taking the body-art world by storm:Eyeball tattoos.
The body-art practice began a couple of years ago, with tattoo artist Luna Cobra injecting his corneas with colored dye in an attempt to mimic characters from the movie “Dune.”
The trend’s popularity has steadily increased ever since.
Customers can tattoo their eyes any color they wish
Some of which look downright devilish.
The procedure, like traditional tattoos, is permanent
And involves injecting the eyes outermost layer, the conjunctiva, with dye.
It takes several injections to achieve the desired look.
Unsurprisingly, eyeball tattoos arent completely safe.
Jamaican artist Mace nearly blinded himself earlier this year after attempting to dye his eyes black.
Those who stand by the practice enjoy the otherworldly look
But for the rest of us, its a little creepy.
Regular tattoos can be lasered off, but not eyeball tattoos.
So kids, think long and hard before dying your eyeballs.
