A 25-year-old Polish model Aleksandra Sadowska has gone blind in one eye, with doctors fearing her other eye might also go blind after she dyed her eyeballs black.
The model from the city of Wroclaw in the west of Poland went to a tattooist to dye her eyeballs black copying rap artist Popek, who also had his eyes dyed black.
After the procedure, she began complaining of pains in her eyes with the tattooist telling her there was no cause of alarm and then instructed her to take painkillers as it was normal.
However, after losing complete sight in her right eye, doctors told the model that the damage was irreparable and that she would soon lose sight in her left eye too.
The Polish tattoo artist, Piotr A, has been arrested is now facing three years in prison for unintentionally severely disabling the woman although he has pleaded not guilty.
‘Unfortunately, for now doctors do not give me much optimism for improvement. The damage is too deep and extensive. I’m afraid I will be completely blind.
I will not lock myself in the basement and get depressed. I have sadness behind me, but I live on.’
