Super Horrific Brazilian Thing: Tattooing Your Eyeballs Black


People with tattoos are more and more accepted in society today, with the majority of people realizing that folks with a little ink under the skin are regular people just like them.

But then some folks just have to give the entire community a black eye…

That, folks, is no contact lens effect. It’s a Brazilian guy who had the whites of his eyes turned black by jabbing them with tattoo needles. He claims to have cried ink for two days.

Oh yeah – he’s the thirteenth guy to do this. meaning he saw someone else do it and thought, “Yep, seems like a good idea.”

For the Brazilian Society of Ophthalmology, the invasive procedure is not recommended

Ya think? I can’t imagine how sticking a needle in your eye could possibly go wrong. Unless maybe crossing your heart and hoping to die just really, really failed you this time.
