In the tattoo obsessed generation, where being tattooed is no more a new fad, we come across some instances which make our stomach turn.
Changing perspectives on tattoos has reached to an extreme where we still wonder whether these people are real geniuses or they have made the biggest mistake of their life.
Let us have a look on some of the adherents of extreme body modification who took it to a whole new level:
1. First Indian who tattooed his eyeballs

28-year-old Karan, a Delhi-based full-time professional tattoo artist, claims that he is the first Indian ever to get his eyeballs tattooed. Even after knowing that he could lose his eyes, he still underwent the intrusive procedure.The interesting statement he gave when he was asked about the reason he took this step was “One needs to dive deeper into his psyche!”
On being questioned about the pain factor he replied that nothing can hurt him. Also, the enormous “love” he has received from the social media proves that sclera (eyeball tattooing) is the new “cool” (or not so cool)
2. Another eyeball tattooing controversy
Catt Gallinger, a 24-year-old model, was fascinated towards the relatively new trend of eyeball tattooing in which people get ink injected into their eyeball to turn it into a different colour.
Things went extremely wrong when purple ink started oozing out of her eye, which quickly became swollen and infected.
Her Facebook post:
“As it stands, it has been agreed by both doctors and the surgeon that my eyesight will not get better. It will either go completely or stay a blurry mess”
3. Decorator who decorated his butt with the names of 17 donors
Keith Thripp, 55-year-old, charged £20 per name to raise the sum of £340 for the charity.
According to Keith:
“It is just a novel, strange place to have it done and that’s why I chose the bottom over any other body part. it is always nice to give something back for a good cause and I also like doing things that are a little unusual so this seemed a good fit.”
4. The man with “DEVAST8” tattoo on his face
Mark Cropp, from New Zealand, is having a difficult time in getting a job due to the tattoo on his face. Mark said that he often encounters remark like “We wouldn’t even employ you with that on your face” and others shrugged and laughed at him.
Finally, he posted his problem on Facebook and his post spread like the fire in the forest. Also, an Auckland company reached out to offer him laser tattoo removal free of charge, as well as transport to and from the clinic. He has accepted the offer.

Their story gave me chills and I am still pondering that even after knowing that this external beautification can have a life-threatening effect, people risk their lives without giving a second thought.
Everything done within limits is beautiful. Adore your body, don’t make it an experimental laboratory.
