Piercings or tattoos might make you look obsolete if you are hanging out with these 3 people. The 3 have been interviewed by the people at "National Geographic Taboo" after showing off an unusual trend: having a large alienesque forehead.
Taboo: Bagel Heads is set to air on National Geographic on Thursday, Sept. 27.
The bagel forehead was pioneered by Japanese artist Keroppy, in 2009. He sees it as a progressive art form, for those who don't fit the mold society is trying to impose on them.
You can obtain this effect by injecting saline serum intro your forehead. 400 cc of saline are needed to enhance your forehead, and the procedure takes about 2 hours. Those who have tried it claim it is not painful at all, and even gives them a little buzz, Huffington Post
It is the feeling of “something dripping down [your] head," some say, while others say they have noticed a "slight stinging sensation." A blob the size of one's forehead is created, and the practitioner puts their thumb in the middle of the blob to create an indent. Apparently, you don't look cool if the blob is just a blob.
As the body absorbs the saline, the effect of the injection goes away. This process may take anywhere between 16 and 24 hours, depending on the height and weight of the participant in this bizarre fashion experiment.
"People who like extreme body modification want to find their own way of doing things, and they’re always looking for new ways to do that. The more progressive the scene gets, the more these people have to experiment and go their own way," body artist Keroppy explained.
The "body modification" art scene is a developing one in Japan, and just a while ago it brought us the crooked teeth trend
