Eye Jewelry OR The Creepiest Piercing I've Ever Seen
Young folks these days, you know? They'll just pierce anything to be cool.
Okay, okay, truthfully, these aren't real eye piercings. The, erm, eye-rings are actually suspended from contact lenses and supposedly won't cause an iota of damage to your precious peepers. They will, however, damage your relationships with your friends and parents, since they'll think you're insane.
Now, if you want some cooler-looking eye piercings that may or may not actually damage your vision, fear not-- they have those, too!
Doctors say that these platinum implants-- which'll run you somewhere between $610 and $1232-- are probably not a great idea if you value your sight. London eye surgeon John Dart says that "[t]he stud is quite likely to move around and migrate because the tissue in the conjunctiva is quite loose," and that "[a]ny movement is likely to cause inflammation. If it moves, there will be some scar tissue and you could get some bleeding." Um, yikes?
Would you ever wear eye jewelry/an eye implant?
