Tattooingis an art, but it is also rooted in your skin for life. We're all meeting more and more people with tattoos on parts of their body that are more or less conventional. Atattooon the inside of the eye is one of these things.
A young woman who lives in Ottawa, Canada, wanted to get atattoo on the sclera, the white part of the eye. Unfortunately, she may lose her sight. 1 month after she got her tattoo, the state of her eye is getting worse every day and she posts photos on social networks to raise awareness about the complications of this kind of tattoo.
The cause of this infection? Probably an unsterilized needle... For every new tattoo, the needle needs to be changed. Catt Gallinger's eye changed colour after the procedure. Gallinger explained:
This was caused by undiluted ink, over-injection and a lack of injection sites.
The young woman was hospitalized three times to try to save her eye. Doctors have prescribed antibiotics and she has to use eye drops. But that doesn't preclude the fact that she risks losing her sight gradually. Surgery will be necessary to fix the issue but there's no guarantee of success.
