The tattooed beauty said she has "no regrets" and that, despite the body art affecting her health, it has "made me a better person".

Sarah Sabbath, 26, was left unable to see or do 'anything' after having her eyeballs tattooed, saying her tattoo artist hadn't used enough saline solution.

Speaking to Truly, she said the tattoo artist hadn't measured the solution correctly as there was 'too much ink and not enough water'.

"When I got my eyes done, the guy didn't put enough saline solution into it. It had too much ink instead of more of a water solution, so I went blind from my eye tattoo. I had a very difficult time doing anything - I could not watch TV, I didn't like being around bright lights and I didn't like being outside."

"I ended up going to an eye doctor and got several eye drops for my eyes, and they've gotten better, but they still bother me pretty bad."

Sabbath got her first tattoo when she was just 14, and was covered from head-to-toe by her early 20s.

Sarah, who was bullied at school for being "hairy", said she has always wanted to cover herself in ink, and admitted, "my tattoos are important to me because they helped me become a stronger person."

“I think I’ve spent around $3,000-$4,000 (£2.1k - £2.9k) on my tattoos. They help me to express myself, they help me to feel me,” she said.

“I don’t regret getting any of the tattoos because I feel more myself now than I did then," she added, reminiscing about her school years. I would describe my aesthetic as modern art."

While Sabbath said when people see her tattoos, they often assume she's going to be 'snobby', 'mean', that she 'doesn't have any education' or career - or even that she's a 'criminal'. But she says "I don't mind it."

"Just because everyone's different, so I can't really judge them for thinking the way they do. And not everyone has the balls to express themselves the way I do. I want to get more tattoos because, for me, it's just a way of life. They are my shield and I'll never stop getting tattoos."
