Canadian model who cried purple tears may have her eye removed
A Canadian model who ended up crying purple tears after a botched eyeball tattoo job might have to have her eye removed.
After Catt Gallinger’s getting the tattoo, soon she had realised that something had gone wrong. Due to this, later she underwent excruciating pain and now she is at risk of losing her eye completely. During treatment, she even produced a bottle of artificial tears.
The model revealed on instagram that she had gone under the knife. “Unsedated surgery resulted in panic and damage.. now waiting for sedated option,” she said.
“So next Thursday. If this doesn’t work, my cornea is way too thin and at high risk of rupturing. If it does rupture before, during or afterwards, I lose my eye,” Catt disclosed this heartbreaking news to her fans.
She regretted her decision to get that tattoo calling it a ‘massive mistake’. The model, who in her one post earlier asked people not to follow her if they did not like her tattoos which she has all over her body, is now warning people of the dangers and urging them to do research on tattoos and not fall for them. “It’s not risky. It’s dangerous.”
Catt said: “As it stands I will have to see a specialist and am at risk of being blind if it doesn’t get corrected. This was caused by undiluted ink, over injection, not enough/smaller injections sights.
“There are multiple people who can attest that my aftercare was good and any other part of what I am saying.
“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.
“I have been to the hospital three times, I had no furry pets to cause any dander, and I wash my hands every time I do anything with my eye, both before and afterwards.
“I was on antibiotic drops for the first week and a half and have been on steroid drops for four days now, with little success at bringing down the internal swelling. The external swelling lasted for almost a week.
“The photos show the day of (purple drop), the day after(swollen shut) and now three weeks later.
“Just please be cautious who you get your mods from and do your research. I don’t want this to happen to anyone else.”
In a recent post, she said “the pain and irritation are lessening, but her eyesight is not better. The colour appears to be lighter but that may just be due to the ink shifting around.”
