"Botox is more ubiquitous than yoga pants in Hollywood. But women (and men) in Asia have been taking part in a different injection "trend" for years: saline bagel-shaped injections on one's forehead.
"National Geographic Taboo" chronicles the bizarre beauty treatment in an upcoming episode set in Tokyo, following three people who opt into the temporary forehead injections which have become a keen part of the Japanese "body modification" art scene."
"Luckily, the bagel-shaped injections aren't permanent; the round protusion fades after about sixteen hours as your body absorbs the saline."
That's less horrible than I imagined. So, what is the point then? You would think people into extreme body modification would want things to stay "modified".
No really... the things people do o_o I mean, to each their own I guess, but what the fudge lol. I still don't understand what is so cool about this "trend." I'm glad it wasn't widely popular like you'd typically see when it comes to clothing trends, but still lol. I watched a video of how that bagel forehead is done and it made me feel a bit nauseated.
