Eye tattoo went seriously wrong

Aleksandra Sadowska is a die hard fan of professional MMA fighter and rapper ‘Popek’. She is such a big fan recently had her eyeballs tattooed to match Popek’s! Popek is not only famous for being a rapper and professional MMA fighter, but he also has plenty of tattoos and scars, most notably his eyeballs are tattooed.

Aleksandra wanted to emulate this tattoo, and she decided to get hers done as well. Her experience getting the eyeball tattoo was not pleasant, and sadly Aleksandra lost vision in her right eye and found her left eye vision to be very limited, she was told this was all apart of the healing process. She had 3 different medical procedures to attempt to correct her vision and reduce any pain in her eyes. But Aleksandra was told by doctors the likelihood of her ever gaining her vision back is extremely unlikely. She now wishes to take the tattoo artist to court, but he is refusing the charges pressed against him.

Scarred for life by Henna?

Henna tattoos are very popular as they are only temporary and assumed to be completely safe, however, there are occasions when henna can go wrong. Although the percentage of something going wrong is tiny, the damage can be pretty bad. A 28-year-old woman from Michigan, USA, recently got a henna tattoo whilst on holiday to the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean.

The tattoo only cost her $10 and in the first few days of the tattoo, it looked amazing. But then it began to swell and itch. She was rushed to hospital when the pain began very severe and signs of the swelling were not going down, and after various remedies and medicines, the swelling did go down. Sadly, the woman has been left with scarred skin but hopes that in time it will eventually fade.
