Designer eye trauma Answered

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...

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 time.....so I don't even like the idea of skin tatoos, but my eyes......very few people are trusted enough to put ANYTHING near my eyes......no 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 :-)

I believe you're meant to get your hair from your mother's father. Well, I know most people in my family get that.

No, if I got "my hair" from my Mom's Dad, I would be brown....if I got it from my Dad's dad, I would be cue ball bald.  

My Dad's Mom (my grandmother) was the only red head besides one of her offspring, a girl (my Dad's sister|), was bright red....

I have hair that mimics my grandfather's exactly (when he was my age)... according to pictures.

Way cool, but pricey. You can get Wild Eyes for a lot cheaper, and the effects are still pretty cool. Not this cool, but still not bad.

 I've seen these before!  I love the sheringan eye effect.  It soothes the anime nerd in me.
