Mother Going Blind After Tattooing Her Eyeballs Blue To Imitate An Influencer

Kwabena Sowee 4 weeks ago 0

In a development that is likely going to come as a major shock, mother-of-five Anaya Peterson nearly lost her vision.

She acknowledged that because she is currently losing her sight, she regrets not paying attention to her daughter, who is seven years old, who warned her that getting eyeball tattoos could cause blindness.

Anaya Peterson, a law student, was inspired by the “blue-eyed dragon,” Amber Luke, an Australian model who underwent blue eye tattoos in 2019 and then experienced a three-week period of temporary blindness.

Anaya, a 32-year-old Belfast resident, was hospitalized following the eye modification and may never fully recover from her apparent allergic response to the eyeball ink.

The mother, who also has facial tattoos and a cleft tongue, says she now wishes she could go back and change things.

The body modification enthusiast chose to get her left eye dyed purple in December 2020, despite experiencing headaches and dry eyes as “part of the healing process” after getting her right eyeball tattooed blue in July 2020.

After several months without any issues, Anaya was taken aback when, in August of last year, she woke up with “swollen” eyelids, appearing as though her “face had been inflated with air” and as though she had engaged in “five rounds with Mike Tyson.”

As the swelling became larger and larger, Anaya admitted herself into the A&E ward of the hospital after the’severe inflammation’ failed to improve with recommended antibiotics.

After receiving “medication given through a drip” for three days, the tattoo aficionado underwent a biopsy on her troublesome eyeball the next day.

Although Anaya left the hospital surgery ‘on the mend’, the ordeal has left the parent regretting her choice to follow in the footsteps of alternative Aussie Amber Luke.

Anaya said: ‘I was just going to get one [eye tattoo] at first because I thought that if I go blind, at least I’ve got the other eye. I should have stuck with that.

‘My daughter told me that I didn’t want to do that [the tattoo] asking, ‘what if you go blind?’ She wasn’t on board with it at all. 

‘My [top] eyelid started to swell, and my bottom eyelid started to swell.

‘It kept getting worse and worse. I looked like I’d done ten rounds with Mike Tyson.

‘I took the option to go [to hospital] myself. They gave me surgery and took samples of my eye.

‘They wouldn’t have been able to do it while I was awake, I would have been an absolute nightmare, so they put me to sleep.

‘I just wanted to be at home watching [TV] to be honest. I can’t even put it into words. It wasn’t nice at all whatsoever.

‘It was traumatising to go through. I just remember thinking, I’m not doing that sh*t again, with the eye tattoo. I’m definitely not doing that sh*t again.’

Anaya has been told by ophthalmologists that she is now at a very high risk of contracting glaucoma, and her eyesight is already worsening, with her vision clouded by ‘hundreds of thousands of floaters’.
