That is some disturbing shit and LOL @ the one who didn't want black eyes because they seemed scary, dude, your sclera is blue!!
I recently saw this same show with added footage. They found another guy in this prison who did it, a Hispanic guy who'd taken the leap and gone for the black. He already had extensive black tatoo work all over his body including his face and I gotta say, with the addition of the eyes, it didn't look scary. It was striking and beautiful. One of the officers jokingly said, "striking," but I bet deep down he'd recognized it as an artistic statement that worked, ie, recognized it as hot. The prisoner had brown eyes, which strangely looked warmer shrouded in black, but that's close up. Far away he did look scary, especially if he grimaces or scowls.
