William Watson, 58, a man who suffered a serious eye injury as a child has got a tattoo on his eyeball. While he was awake.
Mr Watson, from New York, experienced damage to his eye when he was hit in the face by a ball when he was a child, leaving his left iris looking permanently white and cloudy.
Its appearance drew unwanted attention and unwelcome stares from strangers, so Mr Watson decided to get the unusual tattoo.
The cosmetic procedure does not improve the actual condition of the. damaged eye but the injected ink allows the pupil to look normal.
