Meet Molly Burke, a 25-year-old YouTuber and activist from Ontario, Canada. At the age of four, Burke was diagnoses with a disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa, a rare and degenerative eye disease that causes severe vision impairment. There is currently no cure for RP and Burke went completely blind at the age of 14.

However, despite the physical challenges that her vision impairment presents, Burke has found incredible success as a YouTuber. Burke currently has 1.8 million subscribers on her channel and has collaborated with big name content creators, including Shane Dawson, Colleen Ballinger, the Dolan twins, Gabbie Hanna, Joey Graceffa, and Liza Koshy. Her most recent collaboration happened to be with yours truly and we set Burke up with a once in a lifetime tattoo experience.

While visiting NYC for the Creator Summit and the Shorty Awards, we hooked Burke up with a tattoo to commemorate her channel. However, instead of picking the design herself, Burke put out a poll on her Twitter page and allowed her followers to decide her fate. Take a look at Molly Burke's exciting tattoo experience with INKED in the video below and let us know what you think of the final product in the comments section.
