Rodrigo Fernando Dos Santos, a native of Brazil, took things up a notch when he decided to get his eyeballs tattooed black. It looks like Dos Santos is in the running for weirdest tattoo of 2013. The front-runner is still Lesya, the girl who tattooed her boyfriend’s name across her face.
To those that are thinking he put a tattoo gun on his eye, he did didn’t, so that should put your mind at ease. What won’t make you feel any better is the fact that they used a syringe instead. Gag. The procedure injects ink in between the conjunctiva and sclera layer, creating that creepy “thriller” look.
Why the guy just didn’t get a bunch of contacts is far beyond my comprehension, but now he’s in the game. Eyeball tats have been going on for the past 2,000 years, and the injection method sprung up in Canada about six years ago.
Dos Santos said that he had been crying black tears for the past few days, but they’re starting to lighten up to a grey color. Dos Santos is already covered in tats…It looks like he just ran out of space and eyeballs came up during dinner conversations.
Eye pros obviously don’t endorse getting your eye injected with ink, for obvious reasons. Although, if you’re really into emo, and want to cry black tears while writing poetry and listening to Smashing Pumpkins, this might be a great option down the road.
