No! No! No! Eye Tattoos Are Out
July 31, 2007 — IF you think tattoos are so over, you’ve got another think coming. The latest in permanent ink? Tats on your eyeball. That’s right – a sharp stick in the eye.
When doctors do it, it’s called corneal tattooing; but when perfectly healthy folks looking for new horizons in tattooing, piercing, scarring, etc., do it, it’s nuts.
Last month, the online magazine BMEzine.com (short for Body Modification) started chronicling three people’s efforts to turn the whites of their eyes blue.
To tattoo the eyes, they used two different procedures. First they used a traditional needle with ink on it, but when the ink didn’t hold, they switched to a syringe that injected ink into the eye. The most recent posts indicate that all was well, with one of the guys saying it felt like he had something in his eye.

I find tattoos vain, but this isn’t vain it’s insane.

I’m with KRG on this one. It hurts me just to look at it.
Why people? I don’t get it.

The contacts are one thing, this is…another.
I appreciate the comment but the free advertising less so. You’re welcome to comment here but there is no need to add the additional link.
I have seen some of those. I don’t like them.
It is right up there.
My finger is in my eye right now. Hee hee. 😉

I’m so eye phobic, I can’t watch people put in contacts; eye exams are a torture for me; not only couldn’t I read the whole article, I couldn’t read the comments either, so all I have to say is…eeeerrgghrhrhgah! EEEW! EEEW! EEEW! ACK!

That is without a doubt the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard of. People are whacked.

Just had a conversation at work and my boss was describing a new procedure where they slit part of the white of the eye and put in a little gem- a snowflake or something-and then there’s a tattoo on their eye. Ugh.

What, Tattoos are in the eyes? People getting crazy about new things, their curiosity drive them to try out these things without analyzing the post-effects…

those coloured, patterned contacts are creepy too. but not quite like a tatoo.
