AGENCIES, Warsaw: A 25-year-old model, Aleksandra Sadowska, has gone blind in one eye after tattooing her eyeballs black in an operation in Warsaw, Poland. She faces impending loss of sight in the other eye as well, as per reports.
Inspired by her favourite rapper Popek, who also turned his eyes black, she underwent the operation in 2016. However, the past seems to be catching up to her now as doctors recently revealed to her that she could become completely blind, reports The Sun.
She had complained of sharp pain in her eyes after the operation, but the tattoo artiste, Piotr, prescribed some painkillers and told her pain was normal after such a delicate procedure.
Later, an investigation was made into the procedure that Piotr followed while tattooing Aleksandra’s eyes. It showed that mistakes were made and he did not follow the correct protocol for the operation. Incidentally, the ink that he used for tattooing her eyes was actually meant for skin tattooing.
“There is clear evidence that the tattoo artist did not know how to perform such a delicate procedure. And yet he decided to perform it which led to this tragedy,” was the statement given by Aleksandra’s lawyers.
Though he has denied charges, Piotr may face up to three years in jail for unintentionally severely disabling a person, as per reports.
