( 4UMF NEWS ) Bagel Head Fad In Japan:
Bored with tattoos and piercings, body art fans in Japan are getting their kicks from “bagel-heading,” according to a show.
The bizarre look is achieved by pumping saline into the forehead until a large welt forms. The practitioner then presses a finger in the lump, giving it a bagel-like hole.
“It almost feels like something’s dripping down my head. Is there something dripping down my head?” one man asks, as a thin tube pumps nearly 400 cc’s of saline into his face.
Some two hours later, after the gloved artist has pressed a gloved thumb into the swollen saline bubble, the man grabs mirror.
“I look delicious,” he quips.
The procedure isn’t permanent, and the bagel bump usually deflates in about a day as the body absorbs the saline, Jezebel reports.
