Pain is Beauty... This time it really is...

When I was growing up my mom always made comments like, pain is beauty, like the first time I got my eye brows plucked by my sister, I felt like I was getting tortured to death, I even went around the house for a while with one eye brow plucked and one unplucked because the pain was that bad. After that first time I never let my sister pluck them again, I prefer to pluck them myself, 

Another thing that obviously is a real pain is waxing..... something I am yet to try, for the moment I just rely on my old reliable shaver. but even that can be a pain when you cut yourself by accident ouch. 

But these are all nothing compared to the latest Japanese trend, Bagel Head and Earpointing. Have you heard of it? I always knew Japanese were a bit wacky but this is extreme... 

This extraordinary look, is created by injecting saline into the forehead, then pressing in the centre of the swollen area with a thumb, Apparently its a big hit in Japan's underground body modification scene. 

The dramatic results of the two-hour treatment last just 16-24 hours, after which the saline is absorbed by the body and the forehead reduces back to its normal size. Thank god for that. 

Well you can watch the whole procedure being done on the TV show Taboo in January 2013 on the National Geographic Channel 

But I personally was a bit more intrigued about the Earpointing Trend, this is when you have your ears turned pointy so that they look kind of like a cat’s ears. I am a big Cat fan especially Kim Kardashians new cat Mercy... Is it not the cutest cat you have ever seen?

If I was reincarnated as a cat this cute I would be happy lol. But I am going off topic, Check out some photos of ear pointing...  I like the result but not the process lol.

Would any of you reading this be brave enough to try either of these trends? Considering I almost fainted getting a manicure and giving a blood sample I for one will definitely pass.
