Woman who tattooed 99% of body finds it tough to land job because of ink

Australian tattoo model Amber Luke has claimed it's not been easy to find a job.

The influencer, who has inked 99% of her body, has attracted headlines for years due to her extreme modifications.

In fact, she's so obsessed as she didn't regret her eyeball tattoos, even though they left her blind.

Despite gaining the nickname the "Dragon Girl", Amber has found it difficult to land a job due to her body art.

She spoke to Brisbane radio show Robin, Terry & Kip.

Amber said: "I'm not going to sugar coat it, it has limited my [employment] options but that's okay.

"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 added: "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."

Amber also told the radio station that people will tell her how they feel about her appearance.

"Everyone has their own opinions of what beauty is," the influencer said.

"You see these cultures [where people] stretch their necks, their ears, their lips."

She continued: "What gets to me is when someone 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 told how she's not harming anyone else with her tattoos or piercings so it shouldn't be their business.

The tattoo fanatic said her eyeball inking left her "completely incapable" of being independent.

She later commemorated the occasion by getting a tattoo of a woman crying blue tears on her chest.

Although she claims the experience almost made her swear off body modifications, she's since gone back under the knife.

She's splurged £39,000 ($70,000 AUD) on breast implants, cheek and lip fillers, as well as a Brazilian butt lift.
