Meet Amber Luke, known as ‘dragon girl’ because of her £20,000 worth of piercings and tattoos who has flaunted her latest body modifications – including fangs and tattooed EYEBALLS.
Amber Luke, 24, from New South Wales, Australia, first developed her bizarre fascination with extreme modifications at 16, and since then has amounted to over 130 tattoos. As well as ‘savage’ penned under her eye, having had her tongue split in two and earlobes stretched out – the young body art fan has even had her eyeballs tattooed bright blue.
The procedure, which lasted 40 minutes, risked leaving her permanently blind – and she wasn’t able to see for three weeks until her eyeballs healed.
The self-professed ‘blue eyed dragon’ went all the way to America this year to add to her frightening look by getting a set of specially created fangs made to go inside her mouth. And they’re not just for aesthetics, as the tattoo lover admits they’re sharp enough to pierce through SKIN – something she finds incredibly ‘pleasing’.
She said: “I decided on the fangs two years ago – I knew I wanted them as part of my look. One day I want to get permanent ones.” To bring out the colour in her eyes, Amber has recently died her long blonde hair a bright blue, and is now looking to make more changes to her body.
Amber added: “I plan on getting tattooed while in Melbourne by at least four different artists, and I’m planning on four sessions of fat sculpting on my stomach and butt.” She warned that fans should look forward to ‘another complete transformation’ as she tots up her modification total this summer. Amber first started having issues with her body when she was 14, after being diagnosed with depression – and it was this news that made her determined to change her appearance.
She explained: “I didn’t know who I was or what I wanted from life, but now I have the confidence to look however I want to. And I don’t worry what I’m going to look like when I’m older.”
Amber hopes to be ‘fully covered’ by the end of March 2020, as she will be travelling back and forth from America to tick off the body mods from her list. These include silver grills on her teeth in the shape of fans, as well as a number of new tattoos that will black out any of her showing skin.
And while she’s often met with mixed reactions from strangers, with many often trolling her and leaving horrible comments, Amber isn’t phased by what other people think. She concluded: “I’m not harming anyone, I’m doing what I want to do and if it makes me get up in the morning and be a happy person, then so be it.”
