Scleral tattooing is the practice of tattooing the sclera, or white part of the human eye. The dye is not injected into the tissue, but between two layers of the eye, where it spreads out over a large area.
The history of eye tattooing dates back to 2007 when The artist known as Luna Cobra experimented on three volunteers; Shannon Larratt, Joshua , Matthew Rahn and Paul Mowery Larratt got the idea after Dutch eye surgeon Gerrit R. J. Melles gave Shannon's then-wife Rachel Larratt an eye implant.and with that luna became more interested with eye tatooting.
But previously the process of injecting saline was used for the treatment of the eye using sterile liquids .and with this luna and his companion sat and thought why not try to dye the eyes by the same process but now with using ink instead of saline .
After many trials that had failed even including injecting the dye ,they became successful when they noticed that the dye could be kept without being injected further, hence no need for feeling pain as explained on the topic of what scleral tattooing is .
After many attempts they now tried on the last two people of which they became successful of which it is in use up to now and people are still using the same process.
