A man in India has gone to court to seek compensation for having his eyeball permanently tattooed on his body by an eye-triggered tattoo.
The 25-year-old has filed a lawsuit against the tattoo artist, who he did not know.
The tattoo on the man’s forehead, which was done on his forehead during a fight with his brother, was removed in December last year, the Daily Mail reported.
According to the complaint filed by lawyer Suresh Kumar, the tattoo was made by a tattoo artist who did not use any tools and left his mark on the forehead without any pain.
The plaintiff was then attacked by his brother and his face and neck were permanently damaged.
The court will decide whether the tattoo will be legal and whether the man has to pay compensation.
India has a long history of tattooing.
A woman in 2010 had her eye tattooed for life after being diagnosed with cancer.
In 2012, a tattoo on a woman’s neck was removed for two weeks in response to her husband’s refusal to take her off their marriage vows.
In 2014, an Indian man had his eyes tattooed after being accused of sexually assaulting his wife.
