Battle Against Eyeball Tatooing

Oklahoma lawmakers are working to ban the eyeball tattooing.

Tatooing, a form of body art that’s been around for centuries, has only been legal in Oklahoma for a couple of years. But lawmakers are drawing the line at eyeball tattooing.

It’s exactly what it sounds like. The white part of the eye known as the sclera is tattooed in the procedure.

Doctors say there is a high risk for blindness. Though the practice is known on the East and West coasts, it hasn’t moved to the Midwest yet. That’s why Oklahoma lawmakers are working to get a bill passed before it does.
