'Dragon Girl' Amber Luke reveals she went blind for three weeks after getting blue tattoos on her eyeballs in a painful procedure
Luke, who calls herself 'Blue-Eyed White Dragon', got her eyeballs injected with blue ink in a dangerous and 'brutal' procedure.
A 'body modifier' got candid about how she had gone blind for three weeks after getting her eyeballs tattooed with blue ink in a very painful procedure.
Amber Luke, 24, who hails from New South Wales spent around $26,000 on her look and has undergone several extreme body modifications. These included having her tongue split and her earlobes stretched. Luke has around 200 tattoos and is covered in them from head to toe.
She has also had breast augmentation, cheek and lip fillers as well as pointed implants placed inside her ear. Luke refers to herself as the 'Blue-Eyed White Dragon' and revealed that the most dangerous procedure she has ever done was having blue ink injected into her eyeballs.
As reported by Barcroft TV, she shared, "I can't even begin to describe to you what the feeling was like, the best thing I can give you is once the eyeball was penetrated with the ink, it felt like [the tattoo artist] grabbed 10 shards of glass and rubbed it in my eye. That happened four times per eye, that was pretty brutal. Unfortunately, my artist went too deep into my eyeball. If your eyeball procedure's done correctly, you're not supposed to go blind at all. I was blind for three weeks. That was pretty brutal."
According to Daily Mail, Luke said she had risked going permanently blind when she had the blue ink injected. "It was very intense and very painful. My eyes got held open while a syringe was injected into my eye four times per eye. I was blind for three weeks."
Luke is aiming to be fully covered in tattoos by March 2020 and said that she does not want to get any extreme body modifications again. "I don't plan on getting any more body modifications that are extreme in that manner. So no more tongue splitting, no more eyeball tattooing", Luke revealed.
Her mother, Vikki, had said that she had broken down when she learned that her daughter had got her eyeballs tattooed with blue ink. "Where do I start? I cried. I said a few choice words as anyone would. 'Why would you do that to yourself, knowing that there is a danger to it'," her mother shared.
"'She never saw herself as being beautiful. She didn't see herself through my eyes. But I've supported her because I could actually see the transition, the growth and how it's made her come to who she is today", Vikki added.
