  1. Essentially, Paul Inman wanted to color his eyes but was too pansy to take the risk of doing it first. I wonder if Hamster even had a choice in the matter of being the guinea pig or if prison rules were applied.

  2. Reminds me of Vin Diesel in Pitch Black. His character had his eyes done in prison too (he called it a “shine job”).

  3. I doubt this could be accurately described as “tattooing”. It appears that they have merely injected some type of dye under the conjunctiva covering the sclera, or white of the eye. The same effect is observable in the condition of subconjunctival hemorrhage. I’d like to know what dye they used, that would be….interesting. Still, obviously a phenomenally stupid thing to do though.

  4. What was it that George Carlin said about tatoos? They just make it easier for the police to identify you. No mistaking these two!

  5. Um, fellas? There’s a reason there are only 5 or 6 people in the world that have had this done.

    Blake – do you know if this is reversible, or will these guys look stupid for life? And yes, I agree: a phenomenally stupid thing to do. They’re probably lucky to still have their eyesight.

  6. My grandma gets the bloody eye thing every now and again. It’s weird to see it progress over time as it fills the eye then drains back out leaving the whites an eery shade of yellow for the next week or so.

  7. Remember the good old days when prisoners were locked up in a cell with a cot, a toilet, and a freshly painted wall to stare at as they carried out there sentence because, well, they were BEING PUNISHED FOR A CRIME?! Let’s get that Mars program going so we have a new penal colony.
