Have you ever loved a kind of food so much that you wish you could wear it? Guess what? These freaks and geeks have.
They’re in love with the soft, doughy look of everyone’s favorite round, grain-based breakfast delight: The bagel. And they’ve decided to hit up the plastic surgeons office and fill their foreheads up with silicone so they look like a fresh piece of Lenders bagels in the morning.
These freakshows are part of National Geographic’s new reality show “Taboo,” which explores the odd and the strange behaviors of the human race, according to a report from the Daily Mail.
A new television series has shed light on the bizarre Japanese trend for ‘bagel heads’.
The extraordinary look, which is created by injecting saline into the forehead, then pressing in the centre of the swollen area with a thumb, is a hit on the country’s underground body modification scene.
The dramatic results of the two-hour treatment last just 16-24 hours, after which the saline is absorbed by the body and the forehead reduces back to its normal size.
So it’s like having a fake boob on your forehead, but with a dent pressed in the middle to look like a bagel? This is just freaking pathetic.
Worse yet, it’s actually really painful. So these geniuses are lining up to go through AGONY just to look a damn fool. In what world does that make sense?
The sensation is evidently uncomfortable. As it punctures the skin, John says: ‘Ooh… That’s a needle going into my head… Ooh.’
Once fully inserted, the outline of the needle is clearly visible under the surface of the skin, and the saline slowly begins filling the forehead. At this point, John describes feeling ‘a slight stinging sensation’.
He then reports a trickling feeling so intense, he is convinced that the liquid is falling down the outside of his face, asking the room: ‘Is there something dripping down my head? … I can really feel it in there, trickling down.’
After an hour or so, the brave trio’s foreheads look significantly swollen, and they appear to have become accustomed to the needle in his head.
‘Right now it’s kind of a relaxing sensation, kind of tingly, and also a kind of building pressure that’s kind of slow and steady that kind of feels like it’s putting me to sleep,’ John says.
Over the course of two hours, around 400cc of saline is transfused into each forehead. Once it has reached the desired size, the practitioner removes the needle, and presses his thumb into the centre of the swelling.
The good news is that this dumbass look is temporary since it wears off after about a day. The bad news is that the stupidity inside these people’s heads is permanent and apparently incurable. Heal the world, Jesus.
