For a celebrity, it’s quite common to have fans, but earning a fanatic is extra-ordinary for sure. We’ve come across several stories of super-dedicated fans who go far and beyond to showcase their love for their favorite celebrity. From a fan who turned his entire room into a shrine for his or her favorite celebrity to a crazy fan who goes the extra mile to look exactly like their favorite celebrity.
Well, things took a horrible turn for a model from Poland, who went to get her eyeball inked. Aleksandra Sadowska wanted to copy the look of her favorite rap artist Popek, who has had his own eyeballs blackened, reports NDTV.
However, the procedure left her completely blind in one eye and she might lose sight in the other too.
The 25-year-old model went to a local tattoo artist identified as Piotr A to get the whites of her eyes dyed black.
According to the Daily Mail, she was left complaining of eye pain after the botched procedure. The artist reportedly told her the pain was normal and could be treated with painkillers.
Aleksandra said: ‘Unfortunately, for now, doctors do not give me much optimism for improvement. The damage is too deep and extensive. I’m afraid I will be completely blind.’
She added: ‘I will not lock myself in the basement and get depressed. I have sadness behind me, but I live on.’
Investigations revealed that the artist had made a serious mistake during the procedure. He used body ink which should not come in contact with eyes. Aleksandra reportedly underwent three procedures to restore her eyesight. However, she lost complete sight in her right eye as the dye had reached her tissues.
The tattooist, who still runs his salon where he carries out mainly ear piercings, has now been charged, four years after Aleksandra’s ordeal began and has pleaded not guilty.
