No more eye tattooing
And after today, it will be against the law in Oklahoma to tattoo the white of the eye.
SB 844, which outlaws the practice, was filed at the request of the Oklahoma Academy of Ophthalmology.
The practice of tattooing the eyeball is growing. Tattoo artists use a needle to inject pigment into the white of an eyeball. The end result is a colored eyeball. The pupil of the eye remains unchanged.
Opponents to the practice say it is dangerous and could cause blindness.
