It's Official - What's In Salome's Eye?

Eyeball jewelry new fashion trend

Quote:
AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands (Reuters) -- Body piercing and tattoos make way. The latest fashion trend to hit the Netherlands is eyeball jewelry.

Dutch eye surgeons have implanted tiny pieces of jewelry called "JewelEye" in the mucous membrane of the eyes of six women and one man in cosmetic surgery pioneered by an ophthalmic surgery research and development institute in Rotterdam.

The procedure involves inserting a 3.5 mm (0.13 inch) wide piece of specially developed jewelry -- the range includes a glittering half-moon or heart -- into the eye's mucous membrane under local anesthetic at a cost of 500 to 1,000 euros ($600 to $1,200).

"In my view it is a little more subtle than (body) piercing. It is a bit of a fun thing and a very personal thing for people," said Gerrit Melles, director of the Netherlands Institute for Innovative Ocular Surgery.

I saw a picture of this in the paper today. It looks...um...painful. But vaguely pretty.

I think his favourite things are beer, sleeping and eating, and thinking/ talking about beer, sleeping and eating.

I still dont think he'd get it done, earlier he displayed his dislike for this jewellery.
Although if you brought lots of beer into the equation, I think he would do it.

I think Salome would probably prefer Steve glistening out of his eye
