A woman identified as Anaya Peterson has regretted not listening to her seven-year-old daughter's warning she could go blind if she got her eyeballs tattooed - as she is now losing her sight.

According to Daily Mail, the mother of five was left hospitalised by the eye alteration.

Anaya, who also has a tongue split and facial tattoos, now says she wishes she could have done things differently.
The mum reportedly got her right eyeball tattooed blue in July 2020.
Despite dealing with headaches and dry eyes as part of the healing process, she decided to get her left eye dyed purple in December 2021.
After months without complications, Anaya was shocked to wake up in August 2021 with swollen eyelids.
Daughter warned her before
Anaya claimed that her daughter India warned her against the unique tattoo, as she feared that her mum would 'go blind'.
Anaya now faces going blind as her sight deteriorates.
"I was just going to get one [eye tattoo] at first because I thought that if I go blind, at least I've got the other eye. I should have stuck with that. My daughter told me that I didn't want to do that, 'what if you go blind?' She wasn't on board with it at all," she said.

Renie Diniz da Silva had spent KSh 6 million on changing his look for the last 14 years, which includes implants in his forehead and tattoos across 70% of his body.
He said he was particularly disappointed in the religious community and claims that on several occasions pastors had denied him entry into their church.
