The trend of getting inked in the eye was started by Luna Cobra, who is a body modification expert based in the United States. He has been working as an expert in the field from the last 8 years but he admits working on this weird trend only after very fine tuning and knowledge of his instruments and technique. It is also warned that this tattoo can really cause many serious vision impairments like spots or floaters, blurred vision or even blindness; if not done under perfect supervision and without proper knowledge and technique.
The process of getting the eyeball tattooed
The process of getting the eyeball tattoos is really painful as needles full of ink are stuck into the eyes and only a trained person should do so. Although the technique is getting modified year after year, the process still remains to be very painful. The pigment is directly injected into the eyeball where it rests under the conjunctiva and then the tattoo is reflected. A quarter of the eye can be covered by a single injection.
