An Aussie model has completely transformed herself with $250,000 worth of tattoos, surgery and piercings, which now cover 99 per cent of her body.
Amber Luke, 27, is known as ‘Dragon Girl’ after undergoing the dramatic transformation from girl-next-door to her current desired look.
The model appeared on Brisbane radio show Robin, Terry & Kip last week, speaking about her 600 tattoos and how her look affects her daily life.
“I am getting very heavily tattooed, but I’m not harming anyone in the process,” she told the hosts, adding that while everyone is entitled to their opinions, it’s “distressing” when people come up to her on the street.
“You see these cultures [where people] stretch their necks, their ears, their lips. But at the end of the day, we all are entitled to our opinion and that’s okay,” she said.
“But, what gets to me is when someone expresses their opinion to me in public and comes up to me and says, ‘Oh, you’re ugly,’ or, ‘You’ve ruined yourself.'”
“It’s very distressing to know that people have that strong opinion and they can just voice it without any repercussions.”
Amber also shared that she’s found it difficult to find a job because of her looks.
“Because the way I see it is, I don’t want to work for a company that’s shallow-minded [and can’t] look past my image,” she told the hosts. “They won’t look at my work ethic, they won’t look at my morals or my values or what I have to bring to the table.”
Speaking to Studio 10 last month, Amber revealed she’s previously gone into shock and had fits during some of the procedures.
The model has also injected blue ink into her eyeballs, which was an incredibly painful procedure that left her blind for three weeks.
Some of the surgeries she’s undergone include breast augmentation, cheek and lip fillers, a Brazilian butt lift, a tongue split and pointed implants in her ears. She also has ‘fangs’ and diamond teeth.
Earlier this year, Amber took to Instagram to write, “Whether you love me or don’t accept me – I’m still living my best life, being exactly who I want to be.”
She added, “I couldn’t f**king care less if you have formed an opinion of me that is negative – because majority of the time, ya’ll… I have never met you before or even had a conversation with you (HAHA).
“There’s so much hatred projected in our society towards diversity and individualism – it’s legit putrid.
“It’s MY body. MY story to tell.
“If YOU don’t like it – that’s a YOU problem – do not hold me accountable for your ignorance.”
Amber’s followers love her unique look, with one fan commenting on an Instagram post, “Stunning girl! I have met her once and she was nothing but super sweet, very respectful and polite!”
“Amber is the sweetest, just talk to her and you’ll see,” another wrote.
“People need to leave you alone and mind their own business,” a third said.
“If I saw you in public, I would ask for a hug,” someone else wrote.
