Body modification just gets more and more bizarre. Now people in Japan are injecting saline into their foreheads to make them look like bagels!
A bagel head artist injects the forehead with approximately 400cc of saline over two hours. This forms a large welt on the head. Then the artist presses their finger into the middle of the lump to create the unique bagel shape.
This bizarre look only last a day because the body soon absorbs the saline. According to users no matter how many times the forehead it is injected with the saline solution, the skin never sags.
Photographer and journalist Ryoichi “Keroppy” Maeda has been hosting “bagel head” parties around Tokyo since 2007.
The technique was pioneered by Montreal-based photographer Jerome Abramovitch in 1999.
He then gave Maeda permission to take the strange technique to Japan.
“The body absorbs it over time so by the next morning it just goes back to normal. We enjoy being freaks for the night, ha ha,” says Maeda.
