Amber Luke has flaunted her new fangs
A young body modification fan has flaunted her new fangs after splashing out $26,000 on transforming her look from a fresh-faced teen to ‘dragon girl’.
Amber Luke, 24, has 130 inkings, including her blue tattooed eyeballs and ‘savage’ permanently penned under her eye, a tongue split and earlobes stretched.
The blue-haired body piercer, from the New South Wales Central Coast, developed a fascination for tattoos at the age of 16 before she dabbled with extreme body modifications.
The self-described ‘Blue Eyed White Dragon’ travelled to the US in April to purchase a set of acrylic fangs so she could insert them into her mouth.
‘They’re very sharp, sharp enough to pierce skin. I love the look of them, it’s so aesthetically pleasing,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.

‘I decided years ago that I wanted vampire fangs. I knew I wanted them to be a part of my look.
‘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.’
Amber also dyed her blonde luscious hair to bright blue recently.
‘I love it. It’s a vibrant change. It makes life interesting,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.
Amber said she’s currently in Melbourne in the hope of further transforming her look.
‘I’m here for the next week or so. I plan on getting tattooed while I’m here by at least four different artists,’ she said.
‘I’m also planning to do four sessions of EMSculpt (Eliminate Fat and Build Muscle) on both my stomach and butt. One session is the equivalent of 20,000 crunches or squats. It’s going to tone me up nicely.
‘Get ready for another transformation.’
Amber said she thought she looked ‘plain’ and ‘boring’ before her $15,000 transformation (pictured in 2014)

Amber Luke (left at the age of 14 and right at 24 years old) looks worlds apart from her younger days as she unveiled her remarkable 10-year transformation
‘What you see on the left is a girl who hated every aspect of herself. Her looks, her mind you name it. Who you see on the right is a woman who loves herself for who she is no matter what mental illness, she’s proud to be her and no one will ever break that. People change, we grow up and we find ourselves along the way. Don’t be scared to be who you want to be’
Earlier this year, Amber shared an incredible picture of herself as a 14-year-old fresh-faced schoolgirl.
‘I absolutely hate the way I used to look. It wasn’t me,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.
‘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.’
At the age of 14, Amber was diagnosed with severe clinical depression.
‘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. 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 how ever I want too.’
After celebrating her 16th birthday, she developed an addiction to tattoos.
‘It wasn’t until I turned 16, I was finally able to find an outlet that released all my negative energy,’ she explained.
By the time she turned 18, she already had three tattoos.
‘My count is now more than 100 tattoos,’ Amber said.
‘I’m not worried what I’m going to look like when I’m older, I understand that everyone ages and I don’t think anyone will be looking too ‘pretty’ at 70 years old.
‘At the end of the day, it’s the only thing I can take to my grave with me.’

Amber said her ideal image was to be ‘fully covered by the end of next March’.
‘I’m going to America next month and over there I will be getting fully covered and getting silver grills on the shape of two fangs for my canine teeth,’ she revealed.

Amber said she has also been met with mixed responses from strangers.
‘I gained a lot of support and positive vibes from complete strangers – there was always the few nasty opinionated ones who try to make you feel inadequate, but I never let them get to me,’ she explained.
‘[To the trolls], if you’re reading this and you have nothing nice to say? Don’t say it at all. You never know what a person’s going through in their personal lives, be kind.
‘I’m not harming anyone in the process, I’m doing what I want to do and if it makes me get up in the morning and be a happy person, then so be it.’
Amber has spent around $5,000 getting another 50 new tattoos over the last six months
‘I’m not worried what I’m going to look like when I’m older… At the end of the day, it’s the only thing I can take to my grave with me,’ Amber added
Previously speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Amber proudly said she has ‘no regrets whatsoever… I’m absolutely in love with my image.’
She explained the meaning behind her nickname: ‘I got the name ‘Blue Eyed White Dragon’ from my friends, they call me that because I resemble a dragon with my eyes and tongue.’
She has also risked going permanently blind after getting her eyeballs tattooed with blue ink in March 2017.
‘The procedure for getting my eyes done was only 40 minutes,’ she said.
‘It was very intense and very painful. My eyes got held open while a syringe was injected into my eye four times per eye. I was blind for three weeks.’
Embarking on her incredible body transformation, Amber went under the knife to modify her tongue split and get ‘pointy’ ears.
‘My tongue split was very uncomfortable as well, I wasn’t able to speak or eat for a week afterwards,’ she said.
‘My ears were a very simple procedure; a silicone implant was inserted into the tips of my ears to shape them.’
