Eyeball jewelry
image When I first saw this I thought it had to be a hoax, because it reminded me of the Floral Sculpture Clinic. But this appears to be legitimate. Dutch surgeons have figured out a way to implant small decorative pieces of jewelry in people's eyes. Here's a link to the Clinic where you can get this done.

There IS a real implant procedure (called subdermal implants) somewhat like the "floral sculpture clinic" but its implant grade steel jewlery. I have seen horns on forheads, an ankh implanted into the back of a hand, a row of steel balls up the backs of a mans arms (looks like a spine!)
and many others.
Steve Haworth has pioneered this form of Body Modification/Art, and remains the leader in development.
