A body modification enthusiast has shared a never-before seen picture of what she looked like before spending $120,000 on transforming her look from head to toe.
Amber Luke, from Brisbane, Queensland, has splashed out $50,000 on nearly 600 tattoos, including blue ink injected into her eyeballs during an excruciating 40-minute procedure that left her blind for three weeks.
The 25-year-old spent a further $70,000 on extreme body modifications – including a tongue split, breast augmentation, cheek and lip fillers, pointed implants placed in her ears and a Brazilian butt lift.
In a new social media post, the self-described ‘blue eyed white dragon girl’ shared an unrecognisable picture of herself as a fresh-faced young woman with a tiny piercing on her cheekbone and a quote tattoo on her collarbone.
‘No face tattoos, just a dermal [piercing],’ she wrote on her Instagram Story.
She shared an unseen picture of herself with tattoos on her neck and chest, thigh, ribs and arm.
‘We’ve all got to start somewhere,’ she wrote.
‘This was me at 18 years old. I was so catatonically depressed, suicidal and was a walking dead girl. I was numb. I hated myself majority of the time – that hatred ran deep. It tormented me,’ she wrote in June.
‘Now, I’ve totally transformed myself into someone I’m proud of being. I’m a strong woman who knows exactly what she wants and who she is.’
