    Default Bagel heads

    Some folks think it's pretty .

    I .. am not convinced.

    Would you consider doing this? (And lest it need to be said, injecting saline into your forehead is something only trained professionals should do, DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!) If you're a parent, would you allow it? All my children are in Heaven, but I think this would hit the limits of my usual laidback attitude. Short clothes? Sure! Tattoos? Sure! Piercing of various body parts? Sure! Injecting saline into your forehead so it looks like a bagel? NO. N-O.

    I don't think its pretty, but I think that about a lot of piercings and tattoos as well. Since it only lasts a day, its more like makeup. I'd let my hypothetical kids do it. I would make fun of them when they did so too.

    To be honest this is the kind of thing I'd encourage my kids to do. Want to be crazy and modify your body-sure add some saltwater and make it look like you come strait out of star trek. Have fun with that. Better than a tattoo that they will regret next week.

    At least its temporary. I think they look like morons, and would most assuredly point and laugh at anyone I saw with this done to them, but hey, like an above poster said, better this than some tramp stamp tattoo they will regret in another decade.

    I don't get the appeal. It seems like the sort of thing one does to piss off one's parents. As a parent I'm going to try to casually ignore stuff like this instead of making it clear that my son is never to even think about something like this. In the long run though, it's probably no more harmful than a mohawk.

    Dont knock the mohawk! I looked badass with one when I was younger.

    I think it looks a bit foolish, and seems as though it would be uncomfortable. It does not seem as though it would be a great idea long-term, either, but I suppose if it is in no way harmful than it doesn't matter that much. One could achieve more or less the same effect with make-up in about the same time frame, though.

    Mostly, my impression is that this is a very odd thing and I can't understand why somebody would want to do it.

    I was only comparing them in terms of long term damage, not attractiveness. Barring the use of unclean needles or razors, the only harm is some regrettable photos.

    Dont knock the photos either! I looked handsome in my dads wedding photos with my mohawk! (Seriously, I still had it when he got married lol.) Probably wasnt the smartest thing to do. I mean I normally shave my head but was enjoying doing something different and liked the look. I should have just shaved it and left it grow back in but I was a kid and not too bright.

    So that's what a stirge bite looks like.

    The fact that it is temporary makes this OK, I think.

    Its like:
    Henna Tattoos are excellent (they last about 6 weeks).
    Real Tattoos: not so much. Even if they are great at first, at some point you may want to change.
    π = 4
    Consider a 5' radius blast: this affects 4 squares which have a circumference of 40' — Actually it's worse than that.

    Are there really no side effects to it? I mean, has any doctor studied what happens if you do that regularly?

    If there aren't: do whatever the hell you like. Just as long as I don't have to look at you. It disgusts me.

    Its just basically water, your body can flush that out easily. Unless you are in danger of congestive heart failure, I dont think getting a gallon of saline pumped into your face will raise any major health issues. Aside from mental health ones.

    And here I thought the japanese couldn't get any weirder. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of the culture in general, but sometimes they do stuff that boggles the mind. Does anybody else remember the tupper-ware lingerie fad a couple years ago? It's got nothing on this, I'm just sayin'.

    Ditto! I sported a long blue mohawk from 2000-09 (usually pulled into a topknot or combed down to one side). I'd still have one now if my slacker-job didn't come to an end forcing me to get a real job. The day I can afford to quit, the mohawk is coming back.

    As for this, well, not the weirdest body mod I've ever seen. Not to my taste, but doesn't really freak me out either. I did see one photo where a woman did two bulges on the temples (rather than the forehead donut) and looked very Oni-like. I can dig it. And hey, tons of bad tattoos in the world too!

    My mowhawk was very basic. No dye job, I just shaved my head down with a guardless electric razor leaving just enough stubble to color my scalp, and left the strip down the middle full size. Since I cut my own hair, I have had plenty of chances to play around. I wish I still had the picture around of me with mutton chops and a bare scalp. That was freaking hilarious looking.

    Thanks. I tried (admittedly halfheartedly because I'm in the middle of an episode of Doctor Who) but I didn't come up with anything, but maybe you remember some useful keywords.

    As others said, it's nor harmful, not permanent, and so whatever. I personally thinks it looks stupid as hell, but hey, they can do whatever they want.

    Also, why does it not surprise me that this is from Japan? Them's crazy folk over there!

    No luck here either. I'm certain it was a thing though. I distinctly remember the model showing off the product on the program. It was like she was pixelated only it was real, not just a computer trick. I don't imagine it would've been airable if she'd worn one made of a clearer model of tupper ware.

    Its possible it was just one of those stupid "concept" outfits. Not meant to be sold, just a way for a designer to show off how original and unique they are and how out of the box they can make their outfits.
