Body modification model, Amber Luke, detailed the reality of getting the extreme tattoo in an Instagram post this week.

The 26-year-old from Brisbane, Australia, said the incident left her "completely incapable" of being independent as she lost her sight for three weeks.

Remembering the incident five years on, she said inking her eyeballs was one of the most "brutal" sessions she's experienced. And Amber knows pain, she has over 200 tattoos.

“It’s been five years since I lost my sight for three weeks and was completely incapable of being an independent person," she wrote.

"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 then had the incident memorialised in another tattoo on her ribs. It shows a woman's head crying blue tears.

The influencer first shared her story three years ago, when experts were warning against the dangers of eyeball tattoos.

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.”

Amber has spent over £130,000 on tattoos, surgeries and injections in her quest to to make the 'blue eyes white dragon" emerge. The first got tattooed at 14.
