Model's eye tattoo could now leave her blind

Model's eye tattoo could now leave her blind”

Instead, she's been left with partial vision in the eye in question. While tattoo and piercing look amazingly handsome, they can cause irreversible damage if done on wrong parts of the body. She's often sporting purple lipstick, purple hair and showing off her purple-tinted tattoos. Gallinger says her boyfriend kept pressuring her to let him perform what's called sclera staining-injecting colored ink into the white part of one's eye-and about a month ago, she finally gave in, as she'd known him for years and trusted that he knew what he was doing. The result is a startling tint to the eye, a procedure that is becoming more and more popular.

Purple ink oozed out of her eye and down her cheek following the procedure.

Gallinger, who has undergone painful procedures before, has been sharing her story on Facebook to warn others against getting this particular procedure. The 24-year-old Canadian model is covered with tats and even has a split tongue, and she tells Vice that "body modifications are part of who I am". Three weeks later, the internal swelling remained and doctors warned that she could go blind.

She has said that she will be taking legal action against the body modification artist. However, she also blames herself for one believing him and two for giving into his repeated requests to do the job.

"The procedure was done by someone who told me that they were experienced".

The American Academy of Ophthalmology strongly recommends against sclera tattooing, stating the risks can include blindness or worse. No, me neither and I'd never be willing to try it to find out but Catt Gallinger was and it's cost her her 20/20 vision.

Australian body modification artist Luna Cobra claims to have invented sclera tattooing nearly a decade ago, and advises those to be aware of "copy cats".
