A woman who has spent over £20,000 modifying her body has revealed she went blind for three weeks after getting her eyeballs tattooed with blue ink.
Amber Luke, 24, from New South Wales, Australia, underwent an excruciating and dangerous 40-minute procedure to transform her eyes.
Amber Luke, 24, reveals she went blind for three weeks after getting a painful eyeball tattoo.
It was the latest in a string of body modifications the body piercer has done, included getting 200 tattoos on her body, having her tongue split and her earlobes stretched.
Blue-haired Amber has also had a bosom job, cheek and lip fillers and pointed implants placed in her ears. Amber, who calls herself the Blue Eyed White Dragon and first developed her bizarre fascination with extreme modifications at 16, said the eyeball job was the most dangerous procedure she has done to date.
Speaking to Barcroft Media, she said:“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 has had 200 tattoos on her body, had her tongue split and her earlobes stretched.
“That happened four times per eye, that was pretty brutal. 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 said she hopes to fully cover her body with tattoos by March 2020 – but she won’t get any more extreme modifications done.
She said:“I don’t plan on getting any more body modifications that are extreme in that manner. So no more tongue splitting, no more eyeball tattooing.”
Amber’s mum Vikki said she broke down in tears when her daughter got the blue ink tattooed on her eyeballs.
Vikki added: “’Where do I start? I cried. I said a few choice words as anyone would. ‘Why would you do that to yourself, knowing that there is a danger to it?’
“As we know as the parents, some kids will just do what they want to do, regardless of what we say.
“But I brought her into the world with the best skills that I could give, the best that I could give her it’s just for me to be there and go along the journey with her. And prop her up, and love her.
“She never saw herself as being beautiful. She didn’t see herself through my eyes.
“But I’ve supported her because I could actually see the transition, the growth and how it’s made her come to who she is today.
