    KSBI-TV - Ticker - Lawmakers Want to Ban Eyeball Tattoos

    :eek:

    I don't think I'd have the guts to do a tattoo on my eyeballs - after all, I value my eyesight more than anything else.

    While I think the proposed law may be a little bit far fetched but apparently the lawmakers felt that it was needed to propose the bill to ban eyeball tattoos just because some people are more than willing to severe their eyesight.

    Jolie said it all.

    Your eyesight is the most important thing and why would anyone want to jeopardize it all in the name of art?

    Of course, we all know there's the back alley of tattooing. Yikes!

    Just because its banned doesnt mean its not happening. Usually when its banned there's more people doing it. Look at prohibition, look at abortion, its followed a similar pattern.

    Theres no need to ban such things and I am completely with Jillio, you have to be completely out of your mind to even consider tattooing your eyes. But if someone wants to sever their eyesight for the sake of body art then that is their choice not mine. Its not my place to decide for them.

    With these sorts of things your better off allowing it and being able to regulate it than to ban it completely and the entire practice is unregulated and more often than not, unsanitary.

    Not only that is kind of....disgusting but who in their right mind would hire you if you have a tattoo on your eye?

    Precisely and not only that - It can also be distracting enough to see it otherwise.

    I figured colored contact lenses would be enough. They have different designs contacts.

    Interesting :shock: I wouldn't want a eyeball tattoos as I value my eyes more than anything.

    I bet it would be distracting to see if a person have a glow in the dark eyeball tattoos during at the movie or seeing people walking in the dark with glowed tattoos on their eyeball.

    what they don't realize is banning it will make it more popular , If someone wants to modify their body in a way that wont harm others ,and in a way that is not likely to kill or maim it's their own damn business . I have looked in to this via a few articles this form of tattoo is not likly to go wrong if done by someone who is properly trained artist . I don't see the point of it but it's not me that needs to see the point , it's who ever is getting the work done.

    I didn't know what this meant and I googled images of it. I saw a guy with the eyeball dyed neon blue. I thought it was very disgusting.

    No way, I never wanted any eyeball tattoo. That's make me sick to my stomach.
    I keep my eyes to see clear.

    it's your body , I am not saying you have to get one , I find it rather interesting, I would be tempted but I would go for a milder color just to throw the color to be a bit off.
