About three years ago, Gulliford, also known on TikTok as, opened up about his experience with eye tattoos, offering insights into what it feels like to have such a unique modification.

Performed in Houston, the process involved injecting ink to dye his eye sclera black. Gulliford describes the process as more of a modification than a traditional tattoo, citing the unique sensation it entails.

He admitted, “It took me a long time actually on the day, once I walked into the shop in Houston, Texas, to even psych myself up to get it done.”

From first ink to a body covered: Gulliford’s tattoo journey
In a more reflective moment, Quest Gulliford shared numerous photos that chronicle his tattoo journey, showcasing the evolution from his first few tattoos in 2009 to a full body of artwork by 2019.

The transformation is remarkable, with early images of him sporting only a few chest tattoos, progressing to more elaborate and intense designs covering most of his body.

Gulliford muses on the possible connections between his childhood cancer battle, subsequent bullying, and his passion for tattoos, “I had cancer when I was twelve, but I have no idea whether that has anything to do with my love of tattoos. I got bullied a lot in high school as well, especially when I had cancer and my hair was falling out.”
