Apparently, St Lucian artist Jay Budz has tattoed his eye(s). The young artist seems to be following in the footsteps of Jamaican Dancehall artist, Alkaline. Jay Budz posted the above picture on his Facebook page earlier today. Shocking!


In a previous Facebook status update, Jay Budz posted "Not Even Mommy Can Stop My Next Move ‪#‎DifferentLook‬ ‪#‎RiskTakerz‬ ‪#‎TrendSetter‬ ‪#‎ToBeContinued‬ 50/50".

I wrote an article earlier this week about the need for the artist to get attention. I said in the article that the problem that soca artists face has more to do with obscurity than their actual product. They are spending too much time perfecting that product and not marketing themselves sufficiently. A great product means nothing and will not sell if no one knows about it.

Article: Soca Artist, The Problem Is Not Your Song. Your Problem Is Obscurity.

But the question is whether Jay Budz went too far? After all, eye tattoos are dangerous and can cause blindness.

Facebook is going crazy with comments about the artist who uses the catch phrase, "Mad house". The argument is quite heated and ranges from insults to the minority defending his actions.

Having said all this, it's still hard to believe that he actually tattooed his eyeballs. I have sought confirmation from the artist, Jonathan "Jay Budz" Mathurin to no avail.

What do you think? Stupid move? Follow fashion? Good move?

Oh my goodness!! Dumb move. Doesn't he know about the possible repercussions? I guess some would do anything to make people talk about them.

Jay Budz eye tattoo

He certainly got himself some attention, so it is working. If this is what he was looking for, that is. Entertainment is not for those who want to be normal.

I do as i please

I am a personal friend of jay budzmm and I believe he is a dynamic soca artist however taking a risk like that as a form of stepping up has to be one which stems from self satisfaction. After all what benefits or destruction which comes from this move will be his gain or loss. I will always support jay don't matter what and i wish him all the best God bless you

Idiot move
by: OCB

What's he going to do when normal eyeballs come back in style. This is by no means an original move.
