A Polish model has lost her sight after an attempt to tattoo her eyeballs go botched. The 25-Year-Old Model, now, suffers from complete blindness now.

Aleksandra Sadowska, 25, a Polish model, got the idea from her favorite rapper Popek, who dyed his eyeballs black. She is a devotee of Polish rapper Popek, who she wanted to emulate. He has undergone a similar eye tattoo which led her to try the same.
Following the procedure, Sadowska complained of sharp pain in her eyes. The tattoo artist, simply told her that the sensation was normal and advised her to take painkillers.
Despite following the tattoo artist’s suggestion, she said the pain had not subsided and that she had already been left “completely blind” in her right eye. According to the statement, she is also rapidly losing sight in her left one.
Aleksandra Sadowska underwent the operation back in 2016. After losing sight in her right eye, Aleksandra said she was told by doctors that the damage was “irreparable” and that she would soon lose sight in her left eye too. According to Aleksandra’s doctors, She has undergone three procedures aimed at restoring her sight, but discovered that the dye had gone into her tissue. The ink used was only suitable to be used on the skin, it is claimed, and should not come into contact with the eyeballs.
Even after doctors told her there is no hope of repairing her eyesight, she was still optimistic. “I will not lock myself in the basement and get depressed. I have sadness behind me, but I live on,” she added.
An investigation was set out based on the complaint filed by the model, Later, into the incident revealed that Piotr had made mistakes while he was tattooing her eyes. The report stated that Piotr had used ink meant for tattooing skin on the model’s eyes.
