A body modifier allegedly used a branding iron to mutilate a female customer’s genitals and tattooed an eyeball which later leaked.
Brendan Leigh Russell, 40, from New South Wales in south east Australia, has been accused of inflicting pain on several women.

Russell has pleaded not guilty to manslaughter, female genital mutilation, and grievous bodily harm with intent.
