I am not sure how to start this. I have heard of great ideas. ‘Let’s build a search engine that will end up being part of everyday speech, and we shall call it………..Ask Jeeves.” I have seen some bad ideas. One example that comes to mind is my best friend from high school who set off an air horn in his car while the windows are up. I have to type out the stupidity, one, so I can remind myself what not to do. And two, because he can’t hear me make fun of him. But I am pretty sure getting your eyeball tattooed is right up there with fucking a toaster. Sure, it has a hole, and you can scream out lyrics to ‘The One That I Want’ from Grease. But at the end of the day, you fucked up. This has to be right up there with some of the worst ideas in history.
Tattoos are awesome. They are a way for a person to show their individuality and get something that will be treasured. Now, that is out of the way. Eyeball Tattoos are the complete opposite of this. Here is the breakdown of the eye tattoo. A needle full of ink in the color that you have chosen is injected into the white part of the eye to change color, and it is possible to cover the iris/cornea leaving a person with sight damage. Just typing that makes my body queasy and have the feeling of throwing up. I am a squeamish person already; this just makes me uneasy. IF it does work, the whites of your eyes become a totally different color. If it doesn’t work, you can become blind, and look like something that is hunted by Sam and Dean Winchester.
The reason this is brought up, a model in Canada had the procedure done. She now has reduced sight in that eye. All jokes aside, this woman is facing an uphill battle for sight in her eye to come back. And I am glad her story is going viral. This is a dangerous procedure. And her story needs to educate people. A lot of people have had bad tattoos and can cover them up. Also, tattoos can be removed through an excruciating process, but it’s possible. Getting the whites of your eyes colored is not reversible. You will always have that color in your eyes. The word dangerous doesn’t even begin to describe this kind of tattoo. We are sending her positive vibes and hugs to get better.
Now, if this is something you are thinking about getting. Just don’t. I think it will be easier to deal with two dolphins having anal sex on your left ass cheek, then trying to tell people why you are blind in one eye.
