Corneal tattoo, brow and * tattoo.
Tattooing the cornea. The words are even hard to type without shuddering. Tattooing the eye is done by injecting a syringe full of ink directly, into the cornea. Looking for a tattoo artist that will actually ink your cornea? Good luck.
Blue cornea tattoo behind blue eyes.
Medical doctors routinely perform corneal tattooing on patients when the cornea has become damaged after some sort of trauma, like a burn or laceration. But a doctor won’t tattoo your cornea for purely cosmetic reasons. Enter the tattoo artist.
Eyeball tattooing just not your thing? How about an eyeball implant? Robert K. Maloney, director of Maloney Vision Institute in Los Angeles is the first ophthalmologist in America to perform a cosmetic jewelry implant into the eye.
To give his customers a twinkle in their eye, Maloney implants a 0.13-inch wide piece of jewelry into the conjunctiva — the mucus membrane lining the front of the eyeball.
“The eye is covered by a thin layer of skin and we make a small incision in that skin and slip the jewel underneath,” says Maloney. “It sits on top of the eyeball itself.”
The 15-minute procedure costs $3,900 and is performed under local anesthetic.
Contact Lens Bling.
Bling for your contact lens? I must have rubbed my eyes 50 times while watching Artist Erick Larenbeek vid on his contact lens bling.

Summer might be over, but life in Seattle is still pretty sweet.
