I spent £200,000 transforming myself into Dragon Girl with tattoos & surgery – now I can’t get work thanks to how I look

AN Australian model nicknamed Dragon Girl can’t land herself a job after splashing £200,000 on tattoos and surgery.

Amber Luke, who has covered 99 per cent of her body in ink, has admitted that her work options are “limited” by her unique appearance.

The ink-addict has made headlines over the years for her extreme modifications including surgery to fork her tongue and give herself pointed “elfin” ears.

Last year, she also went blind for three weeks and cried blue tears after having a “dragon blue” inking tattooed to her eyeballs.

But Amber’s latest confession revealed her problems include more than painful operations.

She spoke to Brisbane radio show Robin, Terry & Kip about her struggling working life.

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.”

The influencer also told the radio station how her tatted body attracts a lot of unwanted comments from strangers.

Although she accepted that “everyone has their own opinions of what beauty is”, the model said her tattoos and piercings aren’t harming anyone else so shouldn’t deserve hate.

She said: “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’s hundreds of tattoos are inspired by satanic symbols and dedications, including the word “death” on her hand.

A self-confessed Satanist, Amber also has ‘666’, an upside-down cross, and a serpent inked on her face.

She has spoken out about how her stark blue eyeballs left her temporarily blind and felt like “rubbing glass shards in [her] eye”.

But the pain didn’t stop Amber’s alterations as soon after she had her teeth sharped into fangs.

The KillStar model has also had cheek and lip fillers as well and breast and bum enhancements.

On Instagram, @amberluke_666 has a staggering 22,900 followers and she has capitalised on this social media success as an entrepreneur.

She created Dragon Boxes, a company selling custom-made jewellery boxes, ‘satanic’ stick-on nails, and sexy baby-doll garter belts.

Sharing before and after photos on Instagram in January, Amber admitted that she “hated everything about [herself]” back then.

She explained: “I didn’t want to be that person anymore, so, I reinvented myself.”

Earlier this year, another woman hit back at trolls who said she would never get a job because of her tattoos.

Josie Man revealed she has numerous inkings all over her body, including some on her hands that can’t be covered up in the workplace.

In contrast, a jobseeker from Essex was turned down for a position at Costco just because of a tiny tattoo on her hand.

Joanna Sutherland said she was immediately dropped from her second-round interview when the employer noticed the inking of her partner’s name on the back of her palm.
