An OnlyFans star and former topless waitress for an outlaw bikie gang broke down in court after avoiding jail time despite pleading guilty to drug trafficking.
Instagram model Amber Luke pleaded guilty to seven drug charges in December last year after police raided her Capalaba home and found sealed bags of marijuana and MDMA and other drug-related paraphernalia.
The 26-year-old was sentenced on Tuesday at Brisbane District Court where the court heard she carried out street-level drug deals, raking in thousands of dollars in illegal money, NCA Newswire reported.
But rather than a jail term Ms Luke was given a head sentence of three years with immediate parole to seek treatment for the mental health issues she says has plagued her adult life.
Amber Luke has spent upwards of $50,000 on nearly 600 tattoos, including injecting blue ink into her eyeballs during an excruciating 40 minute procedure which left her blind for three weeks

The Instagram and OnlyFans model, who goes by ‘Blue Eyes White Dragon’ online, e has spent upwards of $50,000 on nearly 600 tattoos, including injecting blue ink into her eyeballs during an excruciating 40 minute procedure which left her blind for three weeks.
She spent a further $70,000 on extreme body modifications – including a tongue split, breast augmentation, cheek and lip fillers, pointed implants placed in her ears and a Brazilian butt lift.
Luke also has numerous piercings and her teeth have been sharpened into fangs.
She has previously spoken out about her mental health battles and explained that the body modifications helped her to become more comfortable in herself.
In 2020, she shared a picture of herself with a bare face, taken at the age of 18, showing quotes inked along her ribs.
‘This was me at 18 years old. I was so catatonically depressed, suicidal and was a walking dead girl. I was numb. I hated myself majority of the time – that hatred ran deep. It tormented me,’ she wrote in June.
Looking at an old picture of herself, Amber said she thought she looked ‘plain’ and ‘boring’ (pictured in early 2017 before undergoing a complete transformation)

‘Now, I’ve totally transformed myself into someone I’m proud of being. I’m a strong woman who knows exactly what she wants and who she is.’
Luke’s defence lawyer said during her court case that an existing mental health report did not ‘properly’ address his client’s situation – which includes entrenched psychological issues including hospital stays for schizophrenia.
The Crown’s prosecutor Margaret Forrest said Ms Luke sold nearly 2.5kg of marijuana in 48 different drug deals over an eight-month period.
Ms Luke says the MDMA found at her home was for personal use.
In the past nine years, she has spent upwards of $50,000 on nearly 600 tattoos, including injecting blue ink into her eyeballs during an excruciating 40 minute procedure which left her blind for three weeks
Luke shared a photograph of herself posing in lingerie on a motorcycle to her social media profile. She joked that she was a ‘one per center’ – which is a phrase commonly associated with outlaw motorcycle gangs in Australia – but then backtracked on the admission
Her lawyer said the trafficking of marijuana was in ‘large part’ to support ‘her addiction’ rather than criminal proceeds.
He said she is now working as a beautician and is undergoing mental health and drug rehabilitation.
Judge Michael Williamson noted her struggles with mental health issues and issued her empathy despite the large amount of drugs being sold.
He said Ms Luke should be ‘thankful for her mother’s support’ who was sitting at the back of the court as he handed down an immediate parole.
She will be on parole for the full length of her three-year sentence.
