A BARMY new trend in body art has emerged in Japan – known as the “bagel head”Submitted by Ed Thinking on Thu, 10/04/2012 - 11:28
The bizarre look is created by injecting saline into the forehead until it swells up, and then pressing in the centre of the swollen area with a thumb.
The result gives the appearance that someone has the doughnut-shaped bread stuck to their head.
The process takes two hours to complete, but lasts just 16-24 hours, after which the saline is absorbed by the body and the forehead skinks to its normal size.
A large needle, attached to a saline drip, inserted into their foreheads.
As one customer’s forehead starts swelling he says: “It’s a relaxing sensation.
“It’s kind of tingly and a building pressure that feels like it’s sending me to sleep.”
