The determined young woman from the Central Coast in Australia did not stick with just tattooing her skin, but also resorted to more extreme body modifications, including eyeball inking and tongue splitting, just to look like a dragon.
Amber Luke developed an addiction to tattoos at the age of 16, and by the time she was 23 years old, she had over 50 tattoos on her body, including her blue-colored eyeballs!
Amber , who is from Central Coast in New South Wales, Australia has reportedly spent more than $10,000 on her body transformation. She reportedly underwent extreme body modification, including stretched earlobes to get “pointy” ears and a split tongue.
The body piercer, while talking to Daily Mail Australia, said that she has “no regrets whatsoever” of what she has done with her body, adding: “‘I’m absolutely in love with my image.”
However, she isn’t just getting tattoos on her skin, incredibly, she got some on her eyeballs to turn the white part blue. She explained, “It was very intense and very painful. My eyes got held open while a syringe was injected into my eye four times per eye. I was blind for three weeks.”
The young woman, who is also known as ‘Blue Eyes White Dragon’, said that she got her nickname from her friends who said that she looked like a dragon with her eyes and tongue.
Luke said that she hated the way she looked before, which according to her looked boring, and she decided to undergo body modification.
“As soon as I turned 16, I was inspired by those around me to get tattooed. I craved to know what the feeling was like,” she told the Daily Mail. “I developed an addiction at 16 years of age. By the time I hit 18, I already had three tattoos. And when I turned 18, I decided to get my first big piece.”
“My tongue split was very uncomfortable as well; I wasn’t able to speak or eat for a week afterwards,” she said of her other major procedure.
Because of her tongue and her fiercely blue eyes, she named herself after the Yugioh card “Blue Eyes White Dragon.” And in an interview with Daily Mail, Amber described every one of her body modification purchases including some fifty tattoos that she started working on seven years ago when she was just sixteen.
Amber compares her passion for body modification to opioid addiction.
Besides her anime nickname, Amber also identifies as a “body-positive tattoo enthusiast.” That means she believes people should be proud of what they look like.
“As soon as I turned 16, I was inspired by those around me to get tattooed. I craved to know what the feeling was like,” she said in her interview with Daily Mail. “I developed an addiction at sixteen years of age. By the time I hit eighteen, I already had three tattoos. And when I turned eighteen, I decided to get my first big piece.”
Amber doesn’t regret anything – she said when she looks at herself she is “absolutely in love with” her image. Her family supports her too – Luke called her mom her “biggest supporter,” but did note how her mother cried when she learned Amber tattooed her eyeballs
