A man who suffered a serious eye injury as a child has got a tattoo - on his eyeball. Mr Watson, from New York, experienced damage to his eye when he was hit in the face by a ball when he was a child, leaving his left iris looking permanently white and cloudy. The cosmetic procedure does not improve the actual condition of the damaged eye but the injected ink allows the pupil to look normal. To make sure the hour-long procedure was done accurately, the pair practised pupil tattooing manoeuvres beforehand on a grape. Mr Watson was first given an anaesthetic and then injected with coloured ink, which was then set into place with a swab on the pupil.
