Polish rapper Popek has had his eyeballs tattooed as part of a new mini-documentary. See the video below. The video includes graphic scenes of the eyeball tattoo.

Popek is a Polish rapper and martial artist who has achieved success in his homeland at both. He agreed to be videoed as his eyeballs permanently tattooed for a new short film by documentary maker Will Robson-Scott. The longterm implications and risks of tattooing eyeballs are unknown.

"I'm going to be complete when I have the eye tattoo," says the rapper. "I'm scared but I am excited too - f**k it."

The rapper has the whites of his eyes dyed bright shade of blue. He is seen travelling on the London underground on the day after the procedure.

"The pain started the day after," Popek reveals after the tattoo. "I can compare the pain to someone putting cigarettes in my eyes. I can't sleep and I am crying all day."

Warning: the following video contains graphic footage of the tattoo procedure and is not for the faint of heart.

Below: the worst tattoos in music

  • The Game: The rapper''s facial addition started out as a butterfly, but after realising it made him look jolly soft he covered it up with a big red star and an L.A. logo. This clearly looks way better.

  • Harry Styles: Child star and (creepy) mothers'' favourite Harry Styles has a tiny ''A'' on his inner arm. He recently said it refers to his mother Anne, and his love for her. The incredibly ornate design was first sketched by band mate Zayn Malik. More on his body work later...

  • Justin Bieber: The 18-year-old singing haircut has got loads of tattoos. This tiny Japanese symbol for music is just the latest in a string of inkings the lad has got over the last couple of years. He also has an image of Jesus on his leg, a bird on his hip and ''Believe'' on his other arm. Sweepstake on the random image/text he'll get next.

  • Zayn Malik (One Direction): Harry Styles isn't the only One Direction lad with a sweet tat; Zayn Malik has this ''fingers crossed'' symbol on his arm. There''s nothing symbolic or spiritual about it, he just loves the National Lottery. He also has the phrase ''Release those big money balls!'' written down his inner leg...

  • Tommy Lee: The Motley Crue drummer was lucky to get ''Mayhem''; everyone in the band had to draw a word from a hat and have it tattooed somewhere on their body. Other words are said to have included ''silliness'', ''horseplay'' and ''poppycock''.

  • Dave Navarro: The Jane''s Addiction guitarist still displays his tribute to Carmen Electra, however he distracts people from it with his pendulous nipple adornments.

  • Rick Ross: Smeared across Ross''s ample bosom are the portraits of Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. Commonly known as the father of Hip Hop, Lincoln was famously gunned down for dissing a rival crew.

  • Flo Rida: Not sure if you can make it out, but that's Jimi Hendrix on Flo Rida's arm. To be fair, the tat may be a little bit iffy, but you can really hear the guitarist's influence in Flo's music.

  • Jon Bon Jovi: There is an argument that says no-one can sport a Superman tattoo and look good. Evidence to support otherwise is yet to surface.

  • Adam Lambert: Lambert's new ink is Latin for 'Music soothes the savage beast'. Our Latin is a little rusty so we'll have to hope there's no spelling mistakes in this one...

  • Justin Bieber: Bieber has recently been inked - again, this time adding an owl on his arm to his growing collection of ink.

  • Zayn Malik: Anything Bieber can do - One Direction can (and will) bigger, better and slightly sloppier. The boyband singer was seen sporting new ink during a night out on 28 October 2012. What do you think?

  • Cheryl Cole: SO BIG!
