A body modification enthusiast shared a never-before-seen picture of what she looked like before spending $ 120,000 on changing her head to toe appearance.
Amber Luke, of Brisbane, Queensland, splattered nearly 600 $ 50,000 tattoos, including blue ink that was splashed into her eyeballs during an excruciating 40-minute procedure that left her blind for three weeks.
The 25-year-old spent an additional $ 70,000 on extreme body modifications – including tongue splitting, breast augmentation, cheek and lip fillers, pointed implants in the ears and a Brazilian butt lift.
In a new social media post, the self-described "blue-eyed white dragon girl" shared an unrecognizable picture of herself as a young woman with a fresh face, a tiny piercing on her cheekbone and a quote tattoo on her collarbone.

Before and After: Amber shared before pics of herself on social media as she used to look before spending an additional $ 70,000 on extreme body modifications – including a Brazilian butt lift (right).
"No face tattoos, just a skin conditioner," she wrote on her Instagram story.
Over the weekend, she shared an invisible picture of herself with tattoos on her neck and chest, thighs, ribs and arm.
"We all have to start somewhere," she wrote.
In another post, she shared a picture of herself with a bare face, taken at the age of 18, showing quotes inked along her ribs.
& # 39; That was me when I was 18. I was so catatonic, depressed, suicidal, and a walking dead girl. I was deaf. I hated myself most of the time – that hatred was deep. It tormented me, ”she wrote in June.
“Now I've totally transformed myself into someone I'm proud of. I am a strong woman who knows exactly what she wants and who she is. & # 39;

She injected $ 50,000 on nearly 600 tattoos, including blue ink that was injected into her eyeballs during an excruciating 40-minute procedure that left her blind for three weeks
Last November, Amber announced how she had been blind for three weeks after undergoing the most dangerous procedure on her eyeballs.
“I can't even describe how it felt to you. The best I can give you is that (the tattoo artist) grabbed and rubbed 10 shards of glass when the eyeball was soaked with the ink in my eyes, "Amber told Barcroft TV.
“It happened four times per eye, it was pretty brutal. Unfortunately, my artist went too deep into the apple of my eye. If your eyeball procedure was done correctly, you shouldn't go blind at all. I was blind for three weeks. That was pretty brutal. & # 39;
She previously admitted that she no longer wanted to get extreme body modifications.
“I have no plans to make any further body modifications that are extreme this way. So no more splitting your tongue, no more eyeball tattooing, ”she said.
Amber previously spoke about how she went blind for three weeks after undergoing the most dangerous procedure on her eyeballs (pictured left and right during the procedure).
The 25-year-old said she has no regrets about her incredible 10-year transformation
Looking at an old picture of herself, Amber said she thought she looked "plain" and "boring" (pictured in early 2017 before undergoing a full transformation).
Before she was transformed, Amber said she never liked the way she looked.
“I saw myself as very plain looking at photos. I absolutely hated how I used to look. It was not me. I was bored, ”she previously told Daily Mail Australia.
"But I've evolved into what I want to be and look over the years, but if I say that, I still have a long way to go."
Amber said she doesn't regret her 10 year transformation.
"I don't worry about how I'll look when I get older. I understand that everyone ages and I don't think anyone is going to look too 'pretty' by the age of 70," she said.
"At the end of the day, it's the only thing I can take with me to the grave."
Amber has received mixed reactions since revealing her new look.
"I've received a lot of support and positive vibes from total strangers – there have always been the few bad opinions that will try to make you feel inadequate, but I've never let them come to me," she explained.
"I don't harm anyone, I do what I want, and if it makes me get up in the morning and I'm a happy person, then so be it."
