Bagelhead Headache

I've read an article about Bagelheads' popularity rising in Japan and I seriously get migraines just by looking at the photos.  These guys apparently sit down for 2 hours while a medical saline solution is pumped into their foreheads to get this alien look.

I could think of at least a dozen better things to do in those 2 hours, if you ask me.


 
I will never understand extreme body modification.  My guess is doing this is also a means of escape for these people, maybe a bit like drug addiction or alcoholism.

Of course, I could be wrong.



Good Lord, here come the Brides of Chucky.

WTH! I rather spend my two hours planting rice than have something injected in my forehead to look like THAT.

Well the girl at least looked like a kabuki mask (with the needled syringe like the horns). I guess they could at least tell their parents it was 'cultural'. LOL. While the girl on the right don't quiet have the noh look, she at least reminds me of a certain Japanese folkloric monster.

Oh wowsers, things like this just boggle my mind. People PAY to look like this? Just run your head into a wall a bunch of times and I'm sure your forehead will swell up like that if you're lucky. Such an undesireable look, bleeeh. On the other hand, I hope you're having a great week so far :)
