|'I Cried Ink For Two Days,' Says Man Who Had His EYEBALLS Tattooed by Lilimax(f): 5:10pm On Apr 18, 2013|
A Brazilian man claims he 'cried ink for two days' after getting his eyeballs tattooed to make them darker.
Tattoo artist Rodrigo Fernando dos Santos, 39, of Sao Paulo, decided to go ahead with the bizarre procedure after having already had 70 per cent of his body covered in ink.
The work involved a special syringe being used to inject the ink into the whites of his eyes.
The irreversible procedure involved using a syringe to inject ink into the sclera - the protective outer layer - of his eyes, 9News reports.
The ink used to inject his eye is believed to be the same used for tattoos on the rest of the body.
Eye specialists have advised against the procedure which some warn can cause inflammation and possibly even vision loss, according to 9News.
Eye tattooing is believed to be growing in popularity worldwide, with a tattoo artist in Australia claiming to be the first to have had the procedure done.
It is part of a trend for more unusual tattoos, with some women even having 'perfect' eyebrows and nipples tattooed onto them as a beauty treatment.
Tattooing goes back thousands of years, and has been a widespread practice across the globe, from the Pacific islands to northern Europe since ancient times.
It is currently enjoying a growth in popularity, with celebrities such as David Beckham setting the trend by having their bodies covered in ink-work.

I like tatoos, both the laser and the UV ones especially placed in strategic areas of the body but having a tatoo inside the eye-lid as I have seen on Tatoo documentaries and magazines is extreme muchless of black-tooing the white of the eye which I consider masochistic.
...Just so you may also know:
ancient Yorubas of Old, (not the mentally enslaved and religiously brainwashed ones of today) had long advanced the knowledge base of certain aspect of their native science by adapting the concept of tattooing* with certain aspect of their native science to yield realistic effect in their delve to master certain metaphysical purpose. An act which spread at a rate that is proportional to the abrogation of the metaphysical aspect but became a practice revamped by it new adopters over Africa that is now and still erroneously regarded by white scholars as Scarification.
*tatooing: it has both physical and
Physically: A tatoo is meant to inspire appeal and admiration. Basically, it's an artful expression of identity or glamour.
Metaphysically: it consciously involves having to do with what I call the logicum in order to bind pact(s) registered into the blood in exchange for certain energies in nature yet unknown to modern scientific discoveries. What I am talking about here is completely different from Physical one above, certain West African folks who aren't shy about and are in one way still into their ancestral belief system can be seen with what I'm talking about here which the Yorubas call gbere (incision) which from a foreign white man's point of view is either another form of tribal mark or scarification.
I hope I have been able to educate someone in our fast fading culture. Like this post if you feel informed by my response.
