A model who once went blind from having eyeball tattoos has explained why she continues to get her face inked – and it’s because the needle “feels good”.
Sarah Sabbath, 26, @sarahsabbath, a tattoo artist and model, has colourful ink all over her face, torso, arms, legs, bum and even eyes – and she loves the creative outlet.
Plus, she’s had facial tattoos, scarification, rhinoplasty, piercings like a labret, dermals and nose piercings.
The Texas resident previously admitted she’d had complications from her scleral tattooing – where pigment is injected under the top layer of the eye.
The extreme procedure is dangerous and can cause total vision loss.
She said: "When I got my eyes done, the guy didn’t put enough saline solution into it.
“There was too much ink and not enough water solution so I went blind from my eye tattoos.
“I had a very difficult time doing anything – I could not watch TV, I didn’t like being around bright lights and I didn’t like being outside.
“I got very, very depressed from it.”
But, it didn’t put her off and she’s gone on to have further modifications and tattoos including on her face.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Sarah said: “I love art. I’m very expressive and ballsy. I’m attracted to different so facial tattoos interested me a lot.
“I don’t worry, I tattoo for a living. My looks actually attract people. Some say it’s cool and some say they don’t get it.”
The artist explained which of her facial tattoos are her favourites, and said: “The R is for Rota which means broken in Spanish and I also have self, for self-made.
“I love them all but if I had to choose one I would say my chin one. It’s masculine but I love androgyny so it’s perfect for me.”

And, she enjoys the process of having her face inked too.
Sarah added: “They hurt more in certain areas but for the most part for me they feel good.
“They heal in about two weeks. I’ve spent maybe $800 (about £590).”
The most common query people raise about face tattoos is whether it makes someone unemployable, but Sarah noted: “I make a living tattooing and I can always find a way to make money.”
