    I'd NEVER change my eyes. They're patriotic.

    Red, white and blue.

    From another article (the stuff the "artist" says is mind-boggling)...

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/tattoo-artist-eye-blindness-1.4313799
    [​IMG]

    "The artist who left an Ottawa woman with vision loss in one eye after a tattoo injection went wrong is defending his actions, saying he didn't make any mistakes during the procedure.
    Eric Brown tattooed the white of Catt Gallinger's right eye purple in an Arnprior, Ont., studio after-hours on the night of Sept. 5. Gallinger told CBC News that she didn't sign a waiver, but trusted Brown, who she was dating at the time. "He had a portfolio and said he had done it before," she said.
    "

    And more...

    "After researching the injection procedure over the past few weeks, Gallinger said she believes Brown had done it incorrectly.
    The needle was too large, he didn't dilute the ink, and he hadn't waited an appropriate amount of time before the second portion of the injection, she said.
    But Brown is defending his craft, saying she didn't take the proper steps to care for her eye after the tattoo. "I wholeheartedly believe it wasn't my fault," Brown said in an email to CBC Friday. "I told her she needed to get more eye drops that day … She was fine, but neglected to get eye drops."

    I had a failed eye procedure. $4000 for laser eye surgery, and I STILL can't shoot lasers out of my eyes!

    I wish there were some sort of medicine we could slip into the water supply that would end stupidity.

    Nah, just bring back the dangerous toys. Lawn Darts alone could weed out so many of the dumb ones.

    I have an original '60s set, still in the box, that I would be more than happy to donate for the cause.

    Welfare? Daddy Gub'mint?



    "Doctors have scheduled a consultation for next week. If scans determine the ink has solidified on her retina, Gallinger said doctors told her they'll have to remove the eye."

    Well, if she IS in fact a so-called "fetish-model", we could just chalk it up to "art, imitating life".

    The "body modification" community has gone miles too far for a long time now.

    Google "digit removal body modification" for more insanity...

    Agreed. What the hell is driving this? What has happened in our society where the need to impress in this manner has become so important, people will mutilate themselves and make such bad decisions?

    Eyeball tattoos? srsly? And furthermore, what kind of A-hole thinks it's okay somehow to take on the job of doing it?

    Ocular surgeon? No, I don't think so.

    WTF was this guy thinking? Those glasses look terrible. He obviously doesn't care about his appearance.
