    'Bagel Head' Saline Forehead Injections: Japan's Hot New Beauty Trend?


    Botox is more ubiquitous than yoga pants in Hollywood. But women (and men) in Asia have been taking part in a different injection "trend" for years: saline bagel-shaped injections on one's forehead.

    "National Geographic Taboo" chronicles the bizarre beauty treatment in an upcoming episode set in Tokyo, following three people who opt into the temporary forehead injections which have become a keen part of the Japanese "body modification" art scene.

    Here's how it goes down: technicians insert a needle into the forehead and inject about 400 cc of saline to create a forehead-sized blob. (One bagel-ee describes is as feeling like "something's dripping down [his] head" and a "slight stinging sensation.") The practitioner then places his or her thumb into the blob to create the indentation.

    For those of us who don't see the appeal in any sort of forehead needles, you can't help but wonder: why in the world would you want a bagel on in your head? A Japanese artist named Keroppy who pioneered the "modcon" body art explained to Vice back in 2009 that it's about innovation: "People who like extreme body modification want to find their own way of doing things, and they’re always looking for new ways to do that. The more progressive the scene gets, the more these people have to experiment and go their own way.
    "

    Luckily, the bagel-shaped injections aren't permanent; the round protusion fades after about sixteen hours as your body absorbs the saline.

    Will this be the new Botox? Catch the episode on National Geographic on Thursday, Sept. 27 at 10 p.m. ET.

    I think shooting botulism toxin into your face sounds worse though, that's just sterile saline :dontknow:

    Am I wrong for wanting to leave a goo puddle in the bagel indentation.

    Not at all! The indentation is there for a reason. Might as well be for goo. Or as Richard would say, "man goo".

    I saw this initially on Yahoo and was going to post it. I still can't figure out the psychology behind this. Why would people want to do this. It's not like piercing which goes back almost to the beginning of man. Where did the first couple of people who implanted the bagel in their foreheads come up with this idea. It had to be a person of some celebrity in Japan who first did it. If Lady Gaga took a shit, put it in a plastic box, mounted it on a wall and called it a Masterpiece I'm sure hundreds of thousands of her fans would do the same thing. I understand the cult mentality. If Howard implanted a bagel in his head and told people it was a good thing there is no doubt MFB and Bobo would do the same .

    They like it because it isn't permanent. They can be cool all night until it gets absorbed by the body then go to work looking normal. Body modifiers lite

    I remember when I first saw the word "bukkake" I asked my husband what "boo-cake" was. And he laughed and laughed....
