A model who was left temporarily blind and 'crying blue tears' after inking her eyeballs has opened up about her traumatic experience.
Amber Luke detailed the brutal reality of extreme body modifications after inking her eyeballs blue.
The model, who was in her early twenties when the disastrous incident took place, was left temporarily blind and even cried blue tears, leaving her 'completely incapable' of being independent.
Despite being covered head to toe in over 200 tattoos, five years on, the Australian has said the eyeball inking was one of the most 'brutal' sessions she experienced.
The influencer recently shared the traumatic experience on Instagram with her 22,000 followers, writing: “It’s been five years since I lost my sight for three weeks and was completely incapable of being an independent person.
"The torturous procedure had me endure four syringe injections into each of my eyeballs (if done correctly - only supposed to be two injections).
"I cried blue tears for two days after the procedure was performed. (botched)."
Amber first shared her story three years ago, when experts were warning against the dangers of eyeball inkings.
Back in 2019, she told Barcroft TV: “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.”
She continued: “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.”
The social media star from New South Wales, Australia, has now sworn off any extreme body modifications, but is still open to getting tattoos.
So much so, that since her traumatic experience, Amber has even got a tattoo of a woman crying blue tears inked onto her chest.
She added on Instagram: "This tattoo on my ribs done by my main @missbreezeartist – who absolutely nailed the concept on the head. Thanks for your time."
Amber has spent over £20,000 on body modifications over the last 10 years and first began experimenting with body art at the age of 14, which was around the same time she experienced depression.
The model is now determined to keep inking her body as she is on a mission to 'fully cover' her skin.
