A Contestant From “Big Brother Australia” Tried To Give Herself Freckles Through A DIY TikTok And It SURPRISINGLY Went Badly
Tilly Whitfeld is a 21-year-old who was on Australia’s Big Brother. And now she’s known as the genius who thought it would be a good idea to take a tip from TikTok (first mistake) by trying to give herself freckles at home using needles and ink she bought on eBay. How could such a brilliant plan have gone wrong?! Does this mean I shouldn’t inject my body at home with liquids I acquired over the Internet??? Since when!??
It seems that during her time on the show, Tilly was actually killing it. She was crushing challenges and actually made BBA history with seven challenge wins. But what fans noticed was that she also seemed to often have a face mask on, and not the kind that protects from Coronavirus. She explained what was up in an Instagram post, revealing that just before she went to film the show, she tried to give herself DIY freckles but ended up with scars instead:
Tilly spoke to The New York Times about what happened and explained that last August, she was on TikTok when she saw a video claiming that you can give yourself freckles via sewing needles and ink. Anybody with half a brain would think, “That’s going to go badly,” but not Tilly. via Women’s Health:
She ordered brown tattoo ink on eBay, which turned out to be fake tattoo ink with high levels of lead, and went to work pricking her face with ink-dipped needles. “It didn’t hurt at all, so I didn’t think I should stop,” she told the publication.
Tilly now has $12,000 in medical bills from this, and doctors still don’t know how to remove the damage she’s done to her face. The damage was so bad that she briefly lost sight in one eye. And Tilly’s priorities are clearly still in order as she said:
“I’m fortunate enough to not have keloid scarring and the surface of my skin is smooth, the pigmentation is very dark and obvious.”
Tilly was actually evicted from the Big Brother house for the final time last night and was sent home.
Well, guys, I guess we’re in the stage of human evolution where Gen Zers stabbing themselves in the face with needles on social media apps passes for cosmetology advice. But I’m sure E! is loving it. Because thanks to shit like this, Botched has another three seasons of content!
