Catt Marley, a young model, has recently opened up about her experiences with body modification after an eye tattoo went wrong. The Canadian model posted a series of images to her account showing the after effects of her eye tattoo. As you can see, it’s absolutely disgusting to look at, but it’s also impeding her vision and may have the unfortunate outcome of blindness.
The images show her swollen eye, a problem she attributes to the use of too much ink that was undiluted and distributed across her eyeball with too few injection sites. In other words, the ink was too strong, there was too much of it, and it was all jammed into one place. When it comes to eyeballs, not a single one of those things sounds good.
The photos posted show the gruesome outcome of the botched tattoo, and for a period of time it looked like the model was going to permanently lose her vision. Catt goes on to describe why it’s vital that you research the people who will be performing body modifications, suggesting that this particular mess up was caused by an overeager artist who didn’t know what they were doing. Thankfully, Catt has since updated her page to clarify that she won’t lose her vision after doctors were able to perform a successful graft.
That’s good news! No one should be rendered blind because of a simple mistake. We here at DigZoo are very happy to hear that doctors have managed to avert the worst of the damage, and hope her healing carries on well. Let us know what you guys think of this close-call in the comments below!
