Model who tattooed her eyeball cries out,might have eyeball removed
A Canadian woman might have to have her eyeball removed after a proceudre to tattoo it PURPLE left her almost blind.
Catt Galinger's boyfriend coloured the white part of her eye, known as a sclera, with "pure ink" and a large needle, rather than doing it in phases over the course of a few days.
The ten minute job happened just over two months ago - but it will have lifelong repercussions for the 24-year-old.
Within 24 hours she was in extreme pain, her eye had swollen shut and she had blurred vision.
Since September, she has had a number of treatments to restore her eyesight - but she claims her vision has gone blurry again.
Sharing photos of her swollen and weeping eye on Facebook, she wrote:
"This is beyond heartbreaking."I CANNOT open it at all without significant effort.
"Since I've always been honest on here, I will continue to be.
"My hope is gone. I'm very close to asking for removal.. I'm so tired of it all."
Now Catt is waiting to have an operation that will remove the flap of her eye that is filled with ink.Speaking to GlobalNews.ca, she admitted that she would prefer to just have her eye taken out than to deal with the pain and discomfort she is currently enduring.
