    Why would "I"?
    Jaundice yellow with red tint goes very well with my teeth.
    How many ppl can say that?

    Wait a minute, having ink injected directly into your eyeball with a needle is bad? Are you sure? Let’s not rush to judgment here.

    For some strange reason I feel warning someone not to tattoo their eyeball shouldn't need be a thing.

    I'm still trying to figure out what kind of "modeling" would warrant one to get their eyeballs tattooed?

    This is one of those "I can't believe that is a real thing" things.

    exactly what I was thinking

    any reputable tattoo artist wouldn't do this . so to have this procedure done __ you would have to visit Jethro . who got the machine in trade , for some of the meth he made in his basement lab

    smart move

    Getting any sort of tattoo is dangerous (possibility of infection, ink-poisoning, etc), but to have one of the most sensitive/important organs in your entire body willfully subjected to that kind of thing?

    As one of the few people in this thread (I assume) who has actually had a needle stuck into my eyeball....I can tell you it is painless.

    I'm not saying the experience is comfortable, but it doesn't hurt.

    It's not the "pain" that is the issue. It's the risk of sight-damage/infection.

    I guess having good older role models has its influence.

    Eek... Definitely not my type...

    Back on topic, I really can't see how half the warning labels in our society are necessary... A little common sense goes a long way...
