Images Of This Woman's Eyeball Tattoo Will Make You Vom

Images of a woman with purple ink pouring from her eye have gone viral this week, as she demonstrates what can go wrong with eyeball tattooing.

Not sure if anyone was considering having their eyeball tattooed… but in case you were, this’ll be enough to turn you off for good.


Canadian model Catt Gallingher recently had the procedure done and discovered quickly, as her eyeball began spewing out the ink. She shared her cautionary tale on social media, in a bed to ensure no-one else suffers the same fate.

‘I am NOT sharing this with you to cause trouble, I am sharing this to warn you to research who you get your procedures by as well as how the procedure should be properly done,’ she said.

She continued: ‘I have been to the hospital three times, I had no furry pets to cause any dander, and I wash my hands every time I do anything with my eye, both before and afterwards.

I was on antibiotic drops for the first week and a half and have been on steroid drops for four days now, with little success at bringing down the internal swelling. The external swelling lasted for almost a week.

She is also sure to explain that it wasn’t anything that happened after the appointment that caused the horrific result; “This was caused by undiluted ink, over injection, not enough/smaller injections sights. There are multiple people who can attest that my after-care was good and any other part of what I am saying.”

In a subsequent post, Gallinger says a doctor and surgeon told her that her eyesight likely won’t improve no matter what.

“There is haemorrhage and sclera tearing from the size of the needle used, depth and amount of ink,” she said.

“They are also concerned that the equipment was not sterile and that there is an infection stuck in with the excess of ink.” The lesson? NEVER do this.
