The reason I’m posting a link to the following story is not to sensationalize or mock the sufferings of a young woman who made a disastrous choice.
I’m posting it because one of the charters of this site is to show examples of how the reversal of natural law in today’s world affects the individual and society as a whole.
And this one has it in spades. My comments are below the excerpt.
From the Washington Post:
Pictures of the Canadian model often showed her sporting purple hair or purple lipstick, or the purple tinge of her numerous tattoos peeking out from beneath a tank top.
So when the already heavily inked Ottawa resident had the opportunity to “tattoo” her eyeball — a procedure called sclera staining, in which ink is injected into the white part of the eye — she chose the color purple.
Sclera staining can result in a startling tint of the eye, a visual effect that has gained popularity recently among those who practice extreme body modification. But for Gallinger, something went horribly wrong.
The day of the procedure, purple ink oozed out of her eye and trickled down her cheek. The next day, the eye was swollen shut, and eventually became painfully infected. Three weeks later, the internal swelling remained and doctors told her she was at risk of going permanently blind in the affected eye.
Gallinger began posting public Facebook updates about her eye on Sept. 20 to warn others against the procedure. By then, she said, she had visited the hospital several times and had been prescribed a slew of antibiotic and steroidal eye drops to reduce inflammation. Her vision in that eye had blurred and showed no signs of improving, she added.
“There are multiple people who can attest that my aftercare was good and any other part of what I am saying,” Gallinger wrote. “I am NOT sharing this with you to cause trouble, I am sharing this to warn you to research who you get your procedures by as well as how the procedure should be properly done.”
In later updates and in comments, Gallinger accused the person who had tattooed her eyeball of misstating his qualifications and training and said she planned on taking legal action.
“The procedure was done by someone who told me that they were experienced,” Gallinger said in a subsequent video. “It is my fault that I believed him. It is my fault that I gave in when they repetitively asked me to do my eye.”
She already has about 25 tattoos on her body, and has undergone another risky procedure to split her tongue to make it appear forked. So Gallinger said getting a sclera tattoo seemed like the next step. . . . But Gallinger hadn’t done enough research and gave in too soon to pressure from her boyfriend, she said.
During the procedure, Gallinger said he made many errors. He did not mix the ink with any saline. He used a large needle instead of a small one, which went too deep into the eye. And instead of doing several small dosages, Gallinger just took one large injection during a 10-minute sitting.
Neither Gallinger nor the person she named as having done the procedure responded to interview requests from The Post on Saturday.
In her latest update, Gallinger tearfully described the pain as “excruciating” and hoped to undergo surgery in the next week to remove excess ink from her eye.
“Today has been a very painful day for my eye,” she said Friday. “In a lot of points it’s been pretty excruciating. It feels a lot like having things stabbed in it again.”Body modification procedures, sometimes referred to as “body mods,” include anything that changes one’s anatomy or appearance, from piercings to breast implants to foot binding. Body tattoos and ear piercings are perhaps the most common forms of body modification, but in recent years, more extreme procedures — such as tongue splitting and, yes, eyeball tattooing — have taken hold.
Folks who want to do extreme body modifications like tattooing their eyeballs and “tongue splitting” have serious psychological, peer pressure, and self-esteem issues. It is not far from the same kind of thinking that caused the rise in transgenderism. But even more significant is that those in charge of the entertainment and fashion industries have been pushing upside-down trends on young people for years because of powerful profit motives and other sinister purposes.
When natural law is rejected by a large enough segment of society, no idea is too stupid or too debased to be acted upon. All because of six little words that the modern purveyors of degeneracy have used to silence common sense for years:
“Who are you to judge me?”
Well, as we’ve seen with all that is going wrong in the world, natural law does all the judging necessary. Girls like this confused tattoo-enthusiast are the ones who pay the price when parents lose all wisdom and strong, traditional, adult influences are nonexistent in their youth.
Simply put, when “anything goes”, “is nothing sacred?” goes right down the slippery slope with it.Help Spread the Word by Following Dystopia USA on Social Media. Don't Make Me Feel Lonely!
