Eyeball Tattoos, Who Wants One?

link

See world's first eyeball tattoo
By DAVE MASTERS

Published: 27 Feb 2008

SQUEAMISH readers might want to look away now as we unveil the world's first ever EYEBALL TATTOO.

The freaky procedure was carried out to turn a body-art fan's eye blue.

And it took FORTY insertions of the needle to get the job done.

Volunteer Pauly Unstoppable, from Canada, has perfect vision but jumped at the chance to be the first punter.

See the toe-curling shots in the gallery below. But be warned - the pictures are very graphic.

Brave Pauly said he had full confidence in the team working on him - but urged people not to try it at home.

He added: "The procedure was extensively researched and done by people who were aware of the risks and possible complications and that it should not be casually attempted.

"Now that this experiment has been started, please wait for us to either heal or go blind before trying it."

What the hell was he inking?
Note: Cannot show pic, the site has disabled right click on it, and even when I put it on Flickr, it still will not show up, so you will have to click the link to see them, it's worth it.

This is absolutely crazy, I can't falthom that thought of someone tattooing my eyeball. This guy is either the ballsiest motherfucker, or just plain stupid. So, who wants one?

I have seen glitter implants in eyes. They make my eyes water, but are apparently quite comfortable.

I can't imagine how supremely painful that must have been. What happens if it leaks into parts of the eye it's not supposed to get into?

I don't care how much you like body art or doing weird shit to your body, risking your eyesite for it is fucking stupid.

I can't imagine any part of the eye should have ink in it.

What happened to the good ole days when getting back at your parents simply involved doing drugs, boozing it up, and having sex with Black men?

Kids today.

According to the documentary "Black Male, Pale Tail", that's still going on, and in increasingly shocking ways.

man... people with no self actualization, and low self esteem, will do just about anything these days to prop up their non-existent sense of identity with externalized 'expressing myself' bullshit...

you see so many people today trying so damn hard to create externally, what they lack inside, with piercings and tattoos and etc...

it's needy and kinda pathetic...

The way I got it is I just selected the text and photo, copied it, pasted it into a blank outlook email (what was handy to past into at the time). Then I looked at the properties of the photo and it showed the link it was from, which I then put in DVDtalk..


for future reference.

i can right click all the images btw...

they use java to disable the context menu...

in firefox you can get around that...

tools>options>(content)click 'advanced' to the right of the 'javascript' line...

uncheck 'disable or replace context menus'...

this stops the java from blocking the context(right click) menu...

free info...

here's the images...

Gahhhh! When I first read that I thought they were sticking the needle into his cornea to change his irises blue. "Change his eyes blue" was the phrase used.
Now that I see it is the whites of his eyes I'm just Gahh.
