Amber Luke, 24, has spent $26,000 on body modifications, slowly transforming herself into a “blue-eyed white dragon.” Along with new fangs that she says are “sharp enough to pierce skin,” she also has tattoos covering most of her body – including the whites of her eyes – a split tongue, pointed ears, and stretched earlobes.
Luke – a body piercer from New South Wales, Australia – became enamored with tattoos at the age of 16, according to a report by the Daily Mail. Later, she began exploring more extreme forms of body modification.
“I absolutely hate the way I used to look,” said Luke, discussing her appearance when she was just 14 years old. “It wasn’t me.”
“But I’ve evolved myself over the years into what I want to be and look like, but in saying that, I still have a long way to go,” she continued.
“Back when I was 14, I didn’t know who I was or what I wanted from life. I was catatonic and couldn’t see what was best for me,” Luke added. “I was naive. But I now have a backbone, and I can stand up for what I believe in. I also have the confidence to look however I want too.”
Luke began getting tattooed when she was 16, calling it “an outlet that released all my negative energy.” She had three tattoos by the time she turned 18, and now has “more than 100 tattoos.”
In April, Luke came to the United States to buy acrylic fangs that could be inserted into her mouth.
“They’re very sharp, sharp enough to pierce skin,” said Luke. “I love the look of them; it’s so aesthetically pleasing.”
“I decided years ago that I wanted vampire fangs. I knew I wanted them to be a part of my look,” she continued.
“’I had connections, so I only paid $100 for a set of fangs. No downside whatsoever. They’re easily removable, and one day I’ll be getting permanent ones.”
Recently, Luke also dyed her hair, opting for a vibrant blue instead of her usual blonde.
“I love it,” she said of her hair color choice. “It’s a vibrant change. It makes life interesting.”
Luke also isn’t finished with her transformation and is in Melbourne, hoping to further improve on her look.
“I’m here for the next week or so,” she said. “I plan on getting tattooed while I’m here by at least four different artists.”
“I’m also planning to do four sessions of EMSculpt (Eliminate Fat and Build Muscle) on both my stomach and butt,” Luke continued. “One session is the equivalent of 20,000 crunches or squats. It’s going to tone me up nicely.”
“Get ready for another transformation.”
