"Bagel Heads"

80 posts in this topic

Why does Yags need a reason to want his tongue split? If that's what you want, that's what you want. I really don't think this bagel business is different than botox. You're injecting something into your forehead to paralyze it, how is that better or worse than pumping it full of saline? At the end of the day, sure you think it looks gross, but it's their forehead to gross up all they want, no reason for all this indignation.

I'm honestly on this. I read sciborg's posts and waited for someone to provide a reason why this was an issue. No one did, I assume this isn't that type of discussion.

Crossing off Japan for my next vacation. Isn't that where they had a fad, a few years ago, where there were certain seafood that they ate while it was still alive?

Yes. Japan. It was a few years ago. And it was totally a fad.

My god, do you live in a cave with no access to anything but Readers Digest, an Etch-a-Sketch and this board?

Body mod artist Steve Haworth does this and tours from time to time, I can give you his contact info. Also, we do them here, but Shane does not tour.

Sure, I'll take the info. What does he use? Hot knife? Laser?

you wanna get married, Bonesy?

Not until I'm older, but when I hit 40 I may be open to the idea.

Tattoos, piercings, scarring, bifurcation of this and that, planking, foot binding, neck elongating, skull shaping, tooth filing. Meh. These things come and go, but bagel foreheads hit me hard man.

If Yags wants to get his tongue forked, far be it from me to criticize. I'm currently recovering from cosmetic surgery myself - and what is body modification surgery if not cosmetic?

And, yes, it did hurt like a motherfucker. The bubbled-up forehead pales in comparison.

The one true downside I can think of if you get bagel-forehead is your face looks that much more delicious to anyone on bath salts.

I'm sorry, while I agree there's nothing like morally wrong with people cutting their junk or tongue in half, or injecting saline into their faces until it looks like a horrible allergic reaction to a bee sting, but it's still weird.

Am I so out-of-touch? To me body modification is cosmetic, not structural; slicing parts of yourself in half definitely falls under the latter.

I don't know. But the kind of person that can't fathom doing it probably isn't saying anything interesting in the first place.

I dunno about the medical details of the saline shit, but if it only lasts a day or two, so what? It's even more temporary than getting your ears pierced, and it's oh so "normal" that I know people who do that to their babies. And yeah, it's no more different from getting a botox or having one (or two!) of those big porn boobies.

You're right. People used to freak out about people coloring their hair and wearing makeup.

I think bagelheads can be more interesting to hang out with than judgmental people who are all like ZOMG FREAKS.

LoB,

I don't know. But the kind of person that can't fathom doing it probably isn't saying anything interesting in the first place.

For clarities sake, I have no desire to get a tattoo, body modification, or bagel head. That does not mean I have nothing interesting to say. If people want to do this more power to them. I had simply never heard of it before and found it... surprising.

I'm not sure why you quoted me here. Are you saying that I am a judgmental person who is all like, ZOMG, FREAKS?

Sorry just a wee bit confused as to why you're calling me out.
