Every Halloween there’s always a handful of coloured contact lenses floating around the room but this latest trend is something completely different. Part of a body modification movement, people are now tattooing the whites of their eyes. “I’m aware of how insane that sounds, but I’ve been doing this type of thing for my whole life so I wasn’t coming from nowhere with this,” tattoo artist Luna Cobra tells BBC News. After seeing a photoshopped picture of someone dressed up as a character with blue eyes from the science fiction series “Dune,” Cobra began to experiment with creating the real thing. Based in Toronto, he travels all over the world tattooing eyes as well as performing other body modification procedures.
