Latest Bizarre Beauty Trend: The Bagel Forehead?
The things we do for beauty. Many of us will try out new and semi-bizarre beauty trends if it means adding a few years to our youthful glows or making us feel pretty, but men and women in Asia have been taking this concept to a whole new level. Case in point: the bagel injection.
Yes, you read correctly. The latest trend in beauty procedures over there just so happens to resemble our favorite Sunday breakfast item: the bagel. “National Geographic Taboo” reports on this strange beauty trend, where women (and men, too) are getting injected with 400 cc of saline to in their foreheads to create a bagel-like shape. Why? Just for fun.
As National Geographic reports, this trend is part of the Japanese “body modification” art scene that has become popular (other body mod trends include head-to-toe tattoos and facial implants).
In fact, the injections only give that “coveted bagel look” for about 16 hours before fading.
Bottom line: If you’re trying something new to get attention, well, this may just do the trick. At least for a whole 16 hours.
Tell us: What are your thoughts on the bagel forehead beauty trend?
Hmm Let's See.. People were not happy with getting their **** Cheeks augmented.. Now let's move over to the face.... oops I mean Forehead..
* I guess *
But can't trust the News either by MSN. They might be doing it for something else but not for the sake of beauty. MSN itself is a notorious **** errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
The title calls it a " beauty trend " but I dont believe that is what the asians are getting the
"bagels" for. I think its about body MODIFICATION .... not about making them more beautiful ! Like getting studs in your forehead. There may be many reasons why people get body MODS but I dont believe one of those reasons is to make them more beautiful ! *shrug*
