An Australian woman has spent almost $26,000 to cover her entire body with tattoos — including her eyeballs.
New Wales resident Amber Breeana Luke, 24, says she caught the “tattoo bug” when she was first inked at 16 years old — and since then, she’s been back to the tattoo parlor countless times. “At first it was because I wanted to know what the feeling was like – I craved it even though I had no idea what it felt like,” says Luke, who’s also had her tongue split. “Once the needle penetrated my skin, it felt like home.”
Exactly how many tattoos Luke has is anyone’s guess; she says she stopped counting at 150. In addition to drawings of flowers, vines, skulls, animals, patterns and phrases, she’s even had the whites of her eyes tattooed blue. “My eyeballs caused me the most immense pain I’ve endured so far, but they’re worth it,” she says.
