Designer eye trauma

Five hundred pounds will buy you a work of art only half an inch across.

Horror-fan Kevin Carter, 36, spends up to two days hand-painting colourful dye on to each lens with a fine brush.

The result turns customers into zombies, mutants, gives them an eye with teeth, or mirror-finish eyes.  For the connoisseur (or horror movie actor), there is the traumatised look...

For-real scary:
!Caution, this appears to be a permanent inside-prison-nut-job-thing:


(hence you copy-paste it)
 That made me want to vomit.
I did warn you!

That was certainly.....odd
The end result doesn't look too bad, but the process, the pain, and the fact that it's permanent is what puts me off.
the fact that they are messing with one's EYES is what puts me off......I got precancerous skin lesions called carcinomas from being out in the sun over the WINTER for more then 15 minutes at a I don't even like the idea of skin tatoos, but my eyes......very few people are trusted enough to put ANYTHING near my way,  no how   ;-) 
Wow you must have extremely sensitive skin to have carcinomas grow from that little amount of sunlight. I'm (part) Indonesian so it takes at least 2 days of being out in the sun for most of it without sun screen (consider Australia's hole in the Ozone!) before I get "burnt", and usually attain an olive tan over the summer.
To use the "overseas terminology" I was born "very light skinned and very ginger haired".     Burning was a part of my young life, before I knew what it does to you....back in the 1960's.  45 minutes in cloud covered sunlight would be enough to get me all red and blistered

I hear you.

I have red hair genes (which did not show up until my beard grew).  When I was small, a session of playing in the sand-pit resulted in burns on my shoulders, so bad that the hospital accused my mother of pouring a hot kettle on me.

My father worked on a farm as a child - learning to drive a tractor & its machinery age ten - and spent his summers shirtless.

In his early twenties, skin cancer moved his doctors to tell him that there was no point in starting a family, or paying out for a pension, since he would not see either mature.  Fortunately for me, he ignored the first, but unfortunately for him, he followed the last.  Now, at 67, he is still working.

He has also lost count of the number of carcinomas he has had removed.

The small ones, frozen off, are not so bad, but when they have to slice and dice    arrrgh.   It's funny, because neither of my parents have any red hair at all (dark brown) but my Dad's mom was red when younger.....and so I believe it had skipped a generation :-)
