A woman risked going blind in order to tattoo her eyeballs so they are a permanent hue of purple-blue.
The Daily Mail reports that 32-year-old Sara Night underwent the drastic procedure and claimed that it was painless, even going so far as to say that the laser eye surgery she had weeks prior hurt more.
Night refers to herself as a “body modification enthusiast.” She has tattoos covering 70 percent of her body, as well as a forked tongue which she had surgically split to look like a snake’s.
The London resident commented on her decision to tattoo her eyes:
My natural eye color is dark blue, but I always used to wear contacts to change it. I read about eyeball tattoos online and thought that, artistically, they looked amazing.
It took me a long time to make the decision, but I’m glad I did it. The long term effects of eyeball tattoos aren’t very well known.
