Makes you look like you've got a rolled oat stuck in your eye.

What next?
Maybe they'll start cutting off their body parts.

When it comes to fashion, the eyes have it!

Six out of 16 million constitutes a trend?

beauty is in the eye of the beholder

If it were a trend, you'd think I would have noticed it in the streets. But lately I've seen as many people with eyeball jewelry as I've seen people wearing wooden shoes and carrying tulips.

It is the business of the future to be dangerous.

Not to mention f**ked up.

** You See?

That cannot be healthy. The eye in that pic looks terrible.

actually people have been cutting off limbs. amputation isn't THAT popular but its been done. apparently the endorphines due to the extreme pain are considered apart of the "spiritual experience".

Dude....stop saying that.

This doesn't seem to look like it as much to do with spirituality as it does fashion. Painful fashion isn't anything new I guess - corsets, peircings, high heals, head gear.

People are strange.

Jess30 09 2004 1:30PM

That's one thing I will NEVER do.

jenga00 09 2004 3:00PM

well I think its intriguing...as with all and any bod modifications.......I'll never be able to afford it but always said it would be cool...something like it

Can you imagine meeting this chick at a bar and then discovering that shit? Not a turn on. More like a RED FLAG! btw: who is this DR. and why is he still practicing his evil medicine?

A fashion statement? Soon, if not now, microchips will replace those lovely little eyeball gems. Chips placed into the eyes and other body parts for scans at the airports; scans at the bank, scans to see if one's bills are current; scans to see what health issues befall us; scans to check our political affiliations; scans which allow big brother to watch us even closer. And if perchance, the outcome for the above is negative, uninvited authoritarians appear at one's door. This fashion statement - I'd opt out; too close to oncoming technological advances. Spooky. Oh - liked the rolled-oat comment. Funny.

Does it come with an integrated laser micro-cannon? 'Cause that's the only way I'll ever have one.

Elaine54 09 2004 6:54PM

WTF??????? That can't be too sanitary.. not to mention probably dangerous to the corneas.. I have plenty of other piercings and other body modifications-think I'll pass on that one :-P

Phricia36 11 2004 2:36AM

ruben: I loved the wooden shoes and tulip remark. Oh lordy... I heard this at work and I am a body piercer, and this has got to be the most rediculous thing I have ever heard, and I thought Id heard it all!!!!

Helen41 22 200412:41PM

Tried to find this out on the net.... how do they put it in there????
