Not a fan of any of these body mods but I especially dislike this idea of “tattooing” the sclera (inking the white part of your eye with a tattoo needle):
I followed this link, and clicked through the corneal tattooing link and found the face / name of the guy who had this done: Josh. Josh (and friends) had done this in 2008. Curious as to whether he’d lost vision or the entire eye yet, I clicked the link for Josh which takes you his account on bmezine.com — where you find this if you page down:

Updated: 11:42 am EDT April 19, 2010 …According to Adams, Joshua Rahn, 21, was stabbed to death as he tried to rob two men inside this home in the 200 block of Washington Street.
“I think this young man made a huge mistake getting involved in a planned burglary and robbery,” Adams said.
Adams said Rahn and an accomplice, Chad Miller, 20, had planned the burglary for days, hoping to steal drug money, drugs and electronic equipment from the two men living inside the house, Brandon Leonti and Warren Sperbeck.
A post from Shannon, the guy who took the original pics of Josh’s eye above: A sad and premature goodbye to Josh Rahn. Josh’s memorial was a week later. He was only 21, with a baby and a fiance! Ugh. I didn’t hate it that much.
