A heavily-tattooed Instagram model dubbed the ‘Blue Eyes White Dragon’ broke down and cried in court during sentencing for several drug-related cases.
Amber Breanna Luke who caught Social media users’ attention due to her body modifications, including her blue-inked eyeballs, pleaded guilty to a raft of serious drug charges, including trafficking, supplying and possessing dangerous drugs and receiving property obtained from drug trafficking, in December 2020, according to the Daily Star.
The 26-year-old Insta model who started tattooing when she was 16 now has about 600 tattoos and body modifications, reports said. Her tattoos and body arts include injecting her eyes with blue dye, splitting her tongue and implants in her ears to make them pointed.
The ‘Dragon Girl’ reportedly explained the background to her drug bust in an Instagram story December last year.
“As some of you may know I have been done by the cops for heavy drug trafficking. Last year I got dobbed into the cops by someone I’m not going to name and I thought was a friend. Essentially they raided my house and found a lot of cannabis,” she said.
“So look, I can’t say too much about this because it is still going to court but; don’t do drugs kids, it is not going to end in a good time, it really isn’t, like I have to do pee tests now and I’ve got to report Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays, so there goes any sort of job I can get before I go to court.”
Amber, who was urged to seek treatment for serious mental health problems, became a person of interest during a police operation targeting drug trafficking in 2019, court documents show.
Brisbane District Court heard that Police raided her Capalaba home in August 2020 and discovered a stash of drugs, including marijuana and MDMA.
Detectives also found clip seal bags, digital scales, a mobile phone, water pipe, grinder, and ceramic bowl.
All items were seized during the raid, as well as packages designed for street-level sales, and $5,000 AUD (£2783.89) in cash.
At the time, Amber told police she called herself a “drug dealer” and admitted to supplying marijuana but said the MDMA for personal use.
Crown prosecutor Margaret Forrest said Amber sold drugs for about eight months between December 2018 and August 2019.
She is understood to have used messaging apps like Snapchat and Wickr to avoid detection.
The prosecution estimated Amber sold marijuana on 48 occasions, with an estimate of about 5.46 pounds (2.432kg) of the drug sold.
Judge Michael Williamson told the model her offending was of a serious nature, but took into account her medical history, including multiple mental health problems.
Mr Williamson said: “You should be grateful for your mother’s support.”
He handed her a head sentence of three years’ jail with immediate parole, which left Amber sobbing, according to the Daily Star.
