What Were They Thinking? – Bagel Head

This is just one trend that I can’t make sense of.

Bagel Head has become vastly popular over in Japan, and even considered in vogue, though I can’t begin to fathom why. Essentially you go to a technician and get 400 cc of saline injected into your forehead (or as you can see below, twice into your forehead). Then said technician presses their finger in the center of the saline injected bubble, making it look like a bagel. This extreme fad can’t possibly be healthy, yet women and men across Japan are getting these injections for cosmetic purposes. The injection isn’t permanent, it lasts less than 24 hours (about 16 total), but could it have permanent effects on your health? I’ve heard of some intense beauty modifications, but this goes way past tattoos and piercings.

What I want to know is who came up with this first. Who just sat around one day and was like, “I would look really great if I had a bagel on my forehead. Yeah. Bitches love bagels”? You can see the featurette National Geographic did on Bagel Head for their September 27th episode of their show “Taboo” below. As always, let us know your thoughts in the comments.
