The tattoo was invented by Luna Cobra, an American specialist in body remodeling.At first it was just a concept, not put into practice.Until 2008, there was an Australian little brother who thought the tattoo with changed eye color was so handsome and cool that he wanted to try it on his own initiative.Even if he tells him that he is at risk of blindness, he is not afraid,So the expert made this tattoo for him.They use a fully disinfected tiny needle to poke into the sclera and then drop antibiotic-mixed "dyes" into the sclera to dye the white of the eyes in color.
It is said that the whole process will not be too painful, as long as the operation is appropriate, than the general tattoo is more relaxed.
In this way, the expert poked more than 40 needles into the eyes of the Australian buddy and successfully tattooed his eyes blue.
As soon as the first successful case emerges, there is an endless stream of followers.
Most of them are tattoo enthusiasts... call themselves Bio-Hackers.
Scleral tattoos have gradually become an industry.In addition to dyeing the eyeball, it is now possible to pattern the inside of the eye.
The person who makes this tattoo is not a minority.In addition to the fanatical "biohackers", many young people who pursue fresh excitement will be eager to try.But after all, the eyeball is a very fragile and sensitive part. It may also cause lifelong regrets.
In the following photo, the girl, Catt Gallinger, from Ottawa, Canada, are working as a model.
Catt is a girl who pursues independence and is also a tattoo lover. Her whole body is covered with tattoos of different sizes.
A while ago, she learned about this technique of dyeing the eyeballs and suddenly had a snack.
The time spent on tattoo eyes is not too long and the process is very simple.She came home and looked at her purple eye in the mirror. She was very satisfied with her heart. However, after a few days, everything was wrong. Catt found that these purple "dyes" began to solidify in the eyes and became such a large piece.
Then, the more terrible thing happened, the dyed eyes, the purple liquid kept going out.
The girl realized the problem was serious and drove to the hospital.The doctor looked at her situation and gave the diagnosis that she was puncture the sclera by the needle that was not completely disinfected when she was doing the tattoo, causing the eyeball to become inflamed.
The doctor rushed to give her an antibiotic, but the remedy was almost useless.
Catt's eyes are getting worse and worse. The tattooed eye is swollen into a big sandbag and can't open at all.
Doctors are now urgently preparing for an operation on her eyes. They expect that the best thing is to maintain the status quo so as not to worsen the condition. If it worsens, psychological preparations must be made for the removal of the whole eye.
Models will certainly not be able to do so in the future. Now for her, the best outcome is to keep an almost invisible eye.
She cried and recorded a video on Facebook, shared her tragic experience of eyeballs, and advised netizens, don't try this eye tattoo easily, at least before doing so, be sure to figure out all possible consequences.
