whites of eyes
Had already had 70 per cent of his body covered tattoos
Specialists warn eye tattoos may cause vision damage
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.

Bizarre: Tattoo artist Rodrigo Fernando dos Santos, 39,
decided covering his body in ink-work was just not enough
– so he got his eyes done too
Painful: The whites of the tattoo artist’s eyes are now
darker than his pupils
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.
