While facial tattooing satisfies some, others seeking pure saturation have turned to sclera or eyeball tattooing. London tattoo artist, Sara Night, pictured above, was aware of the potential risks before undergoing the procedure at a local studio. With more than 70% of her body covered in colorful ink, the former beautician, 32, shared with The Daily Mail, “You have to be very precise. If I’d moved my eye by just a few millimetres while having it done, I could have gone blind.” International tattoo artist and pioneer, Luna Cobra, began experimenting with the procedure in 2007. Since then, he has fine-tuned both the technique and the materials to “increase the safety and minimize the risks of tattooing the eyeball.” However, he warns of visiting unseasoned and poorly trained practitioners because they can cause vision impairments such as blurred vision, spots or floaters, and even blindness. Both Cobra and Night acknowledge that the long-term effects of eyeball tattooing are still unknown.

Proving that this hot mama can bring home the bacon, on Sunday, Fergie gave a very revealing performance at the Wireless Festival in London’s Finsbury Park. Sporting a black-and-white latex body suit with some thigh-high boots, the 41 year-old singer of M.I.L.F.$ and mother of Axl explained,”This is definitely empowering moms to have fun.” Fergie has said that she hopes that the song reminds women that, “Being a mom and having a career, taking care of yourself and still being able to be flirty and fun and a little naughty sometimes – there’s nothing wrong with that.”
