Eyeball tattoos are a relatively new extreme body modification. This procedure, which is performed for cosmetic purposes, involves injecting some type of pigment directly under the bulbar conjunctiva with a needle. In the medical literature, there is only one report of short-term complications, seven weeks after the procedure 1. We report two cases of Mexican patients with eyeball tattoos that presented with short-term post-procedural complications. Case 1 is a 26-year-old Mexican man that developed orbital cellulitis and posterior scleritis 2 h after an eyeball tattoo. The patient responded satisfactorily to systemic antibiotic and corticosteroid treatment. Case 2 is a 17-year-old Mexican man that developed two sub-episcleral nodules in the ink injection sites immediately after the procedure.
