A WOMAN who has spent over £20,000 on her intricate body art and even went BLIND after tattooing her eye balls has shared jaw-dropping photos of what she used to look like.
Amber Luke, 25, from New South Wales, Australia, was asked by one of her 13,700 Instagram followers to share a photo of herself before her 200 tattoos and piercings.
The Instagram star – who calls herself the Blue Eyed White Dragon – previously shared an old photo back when she had blonde hair and no visible body art.
The photo shows a fresh-faced Amber in an aqua blue prom dress as she hugged her mum.
Flash forward to 2020 and Amber is famous for her blue hair and intricate body art which covers every inch of her body.
She has also had a boob job, cheek and lip fillers and pointed implants placed in her ears.
More recently, the blue-haired bombshell had vampire fangs added to her teeth in her latest body modification.
Last year, Amber underwent an excruciating and dangerous 40-minute procedure to transform her eyes, dying them a bright shade of blue.

It was the latest in a string of body modifications the body piercer has undergone, included getting 200 tattoos on her body, having her tongue split and her earlobes stretched.
Amber said the eyeball job was the most dangerous procedure she has done to date.
She said: “I can’t even begin to describe to you what the feeling was like, the best thing I can give you is once the eyeball was penetrated with the ink, it felt like [the tattoo artist] grabbed 10 shards of glass and rubbed it in my eye.
“That happened four times per eye, that was pretty brutal. Unfortunately, my artist went too deep into my eyeball. “If your eyeball procedure’s done correctly, you’re not supposed to go blind at all. “I was blind for three weeks. That was pretty brutal.”
Amber said she hopes to fully cover her body with tattoos by March 2020 – but she won’t get any more extreme modifications done.
She said: “I don’t plan on getting any more body modifications that are extreme in that manner. So no more tongue splitting, no more eyeball tattooing.”
Amber’s mum Vikki said she broke down in tears when her daughter got the blue ink tattooed on her eyeballs.
I can’t even begin to describe to you what the feeling was like, the best thing I can give you is once the eyeball was penetrated with the ink, it felt like [the tattoo artist] grabbed 10 shards of glass and rubbed it in my eye.
Vikki added: “’Where do I start? I cried. I said a few choice words as anyone would. ‘Why would you do that to yourself, knowing that there is a danger to it?’ “As we know as the parents, some kids will just do what they want to do, regardless of what we say. “But I brought her into the world with the best skills that I could give, the best that I could give her it’s just for me to be there and go along the journey with her. And prop her up, and love her. “She never saw herself as being beautiful. She didn’t see herself through my eyes. “But I’ve supported her because I could actually see the transition, the growth and how it’s made her come to who she is today.
“I think over time, I’ve learned to actually understand that it doesn’t change you. It’s the society’s perception on it.” The self-professed ‘blue eyed dragon’ went all the way to America to add to her frightening look by getting a set of specially created fangs made to go inside her mouth. And they’re not just for aesthetics, as the tattoo lover admits they’re sharp enough to pierce through SKIN – something she finds incredibly ‘pleasing’. Amber first started having issues with her body when she was 14, after being diagnosed with depression.
She explained: “I didn’t know who I was or what I wanted from life, but now I have the confidence to look however I want to. And I don’t worry what I’m going to look like when I’m older.” And while she’s often met with mixed reactions from strangers, with many trolling her and leaving horrible comments, Amber isn’t fazed by what other people think. She concluded: “I’m not harming anyone, I’m doing what I want to do and if it makes me get up in the morning and be a happy person, then so be it.”
