There is an extreme body modification beauty trend that is sweeping parts of Japan. The "Bagel head" technique, which originated in Canada, involves injecting a person's forehead with saline to create a temporary bubble that is shaped to look like a bagel. Most popular in the underground body modification scene, the procedure lasts about 16 hours before the body absorbs all of the injection. The temporary practice is believed to be popular in Japan because other types of permanent body modification have been looked down upon. For those with tough skin, check out the outrageous procedure in action!
Hmm...this seems painful.
