A ‘DRAGON Girl’ who went blind for three weeks after getting her eyeballs tattooed says she has no regrets about risking her sight – and has set herself a four-month deadline to complete her transformation.
Amber Luke, from Australia’s New South Wales, started getting work done at 16 – and also revealed her plans to have a Brazilian butt lift next year.
The 24-year-old has already got her tongue split and earlobes stretched, as well as a boob job, cheek and lip fillers.
Speaking exclusively to Fabulous Digital today, Amber said: “I have somewhere between 200 and 250 tattoos.
“I plan to be fully covered by the time I’m 25, which is next March, so I’m on a countdown.
“I’ll still have little skin gaps here and there, and I probably won’t do any more on my face.
“I don’t really want any other modifications, although I’m getting a Brazilian butt lift in the new year.”
Amber recently had an excruciating 40-minute procedure to ink her eyeballs blue, which she described as “like 10 shards of glass (being) rubbed into my eye”.
The injections left her blind for three weeks, but Amber wouldn’t change a thing.
I will never regret the fact I went blind for three weeks, it was just a stepping stone to what I wanted to look like
She said: “I will never regret the fact I went blind for three weeks, it was just a stepping stone to what I wanted to look like.
“They will last forever, I had four injections per eye. It’s not like a normal tattoo, it actually gets darker over time.”
When we spoke to Amber, she was mid-way through getting her foot tattooed – in her quest to full body coverage.
She said: “From a young age, I never really saw myself as beautiful. I didn’t like the way I look or anything I saw for years.
“It was very confronting to look in the mirror and see my reflection.
“It wasn’t until I turned 16 that I was able to get that feeling of empowerment and entitlement of my own body.
From a young age, I never really saw myself as beautiful
“I realised these tattoos are a way of expressing myself and making myself who I am. I started getting heavily tattooed at 20.
“I didn’t actually have a goal in mind.
“I never wanted to look like a dragon, my friends just dubbed me Blue Eyes White Dragon because I have a split tongue and blue eyes, and Yu-Gi-Oh has a card with that name.”
Amber has spent £17,000 (AUS$32,000) on modifications over the years, but says many of her tattoos were freebies.
She said: “People want to make their mark on me, a lot of them are collaborations through Instagram” – where she has 158,000 followers.
I don’t actually get a lot of men messaging me. I think they are intimidated of the tattoos
The rest of Amber’s work has been privately funded, through her jobs as a body piercer and apprentice tattooer, as well as her Only Fans account.
Only Fans is a subscription-based app where people can share anything from topless snaps to full-blown amateur porn.
Amber said: “People are very open minded when it comes to Only Fans, so my look definitely goes a long way. I make about $4,000 (£2,000) a month.”
Despite her popularity online, Amber has been single for over a year and says men are “intimated” by her extreme look.
She said: “I haven’t dated for about a year, my last relationship didn’t end very well.
I never wanted to look like a dragon, my friends just dubbed me Blue Eyes White Dragon because I have a split tongue and blue eyes
“I don’t actually get a lot of men messaging me. I think they are intimidated of the tattoos, I’ve had a lot of people tell me that.
“I don’t like it, because I like to be an approachable person… but that’s the harsh reality.”
Amber has also been blasted with insults about her appearance, both in the street and online.
She said: “In a shopping centre, a lot of people just stare and don’t know how to take me.
“I have people trolling me online every day, telling me to kill myself, telling me it’s a shame I didn’t go fully blind.
“I’ve got some really nasty comments and a lot of people say things to my face as well, like ‘you were so beautiful, what have you done to yourself?’ and ‘you look like a kid’s colouring book’. It never ends.
