Japanese Bagel Head Fashion Trend: Really?

Body Modification Ultimate Bizarreness Alert:  Kids please please please don’t try this at home, better yet, just don’t try it at all.

Forget NYC or Paris as the home to the strangest, most avant garde form of new fashionista bizarreness. The hub of ultimate high fashion strangeness may be shifting to Japan. In fact I am sure it is. I am at a loss for words about the latest rage in Japan except to mutter “WTF!”

“Bagel Heads” – the way too stupid to blog about it trend in Japan’s high art / high fashion scene is the newest craze: to have one’s head injected with a saline solution that causes the forehead to bubble out and protrude oddly, then the person who administers the saline sticks his thumb into the center of this watery bubble, creating a dent in it that makes the forehead look like a bagel has been inserted under the skin, thus “bagel heads”. The effect dissipates after about 16 hours as the saline solution is absorbed by the body. And you thought botox was the ultimate gross-out.

If it’s any consolation to other Americans horrified to learn about what the high fashion kids in Japan are up to now, the first video below has received more than 1.5 million views, but the resounding social media verdict is a definitive thumbs-down “I do not like this” vote. Somehow that doesn’t make me feel any better about just how bizarre things are getting and just how creepy it all is. I happen to agree with Aunt Chippy on this one.

And then there are these guys ….
