Eyeball tattoos are a growing trend in contemporary tattooing and are one of the most extreme tattoos out there!!
Eyeball tattoos are as hardcore as they sound, permanently changing the sclera (white of your eye) to another color is a bold choice and one there's no going back from. Surprisingly such an extreme body modification is becoming increasingly popular and more and more people are tattooing their eyeballs!!
Luna Cobra is a body modification specialist and is considered a driving force behind the rise of eyeball tattoos, he's also recognized as the first person to tattoo someones eyeballs!! From scarification to implants Luna does it and does it well, inspired by a photoshopped image of someones eye Luna began eyeball tattooing back in 2007 and is now considered a master of the art.
'I think it's just becoming a trend among people that just want to be super-extreme. But the worry is that they are just getting anyone to do it — or doing it themselves,' -Luna Cobra
Tattooing your eyeballs involves ink/pigment being injected into the eye where it then spreads across the sclera, coloring the white of the eye in the process. Although it is not without its risks, many experts and eye specials oppose eyeball tattoos warning that inking your eye can lead to blindness and cancer!!
As painful as the thought of an eyeball tattoo may be the process is said to be pain free, but nonetheless terrifying.
Would you take your tattoo game to the extreme and ink up your eyes, or is just a step to far??
