Eye Tatoo

e:  N. Tru Bass



Scleral tattooing is the process of inking the whites of one’s eyes.   The process is dangerous and has to be done accurately in order to have success. 

Recently a model allowed her then boyfriend to attempt the tattooing –he botched it.  She is now crying purple tears and is suffering from double vison and pain.  Catt Gallinger, 24, from Ottawa, Canada told her story of vision loss in one eye after attempting the intricate procedure.   She said in recent reports, “The artist, my ex-boyfriend, just kept pushing me until I got it done that night,” she continued, “We were only together for a month, but I’ve known him for years. It was something I thought I could trust him with because he had a portfolio. I was wrong.”

Eye specialist say the needle the novice was using was too big and it was inserted too deeply.  Secondly, he used pure ink instead of ink diluted with a saline solution. 

The young model suffered from swelling and went to a local doctor who was not sure if something was wrong.  She then saw a second doctor weeks later and he was horrified

Gallinger is still experiencing pain and blurry vision and is scheduled to have surgery sometime this week. 

Her boyfriend at the time Eric Brown insists he did not bungle the procedure and she got in trouble for no taking care of her eye.  He suggested that she use eye drops daily and she didn’t. 

Physicians are asking people to stay away from the dangerous tattooing, but if you must do something a safer option exists.  A surgical corneal tattoo can be performed by a qualified ophthalmic surgeon.  Traditionally this type of surgery is re-constructive cosmetic surgery or to improve sight.
