21 September, 2015: When talking about bizarre fashion, the first name that strikes to everyone’s mind is Lady Gaga.Â Lady Gaga is high on experimenting when it comes to her sense of style or swinging into a new trend. These days the weird trends have always caught public attention just as much as those of on the red carpet.
Here are a few unusual trends around the world that will make you tremble:
Well facekinis are termed as a prop of bank robbers? Apparently, they are not. Scores of beach-goers and swimmers in China’s coastal city of Qingdao wear these full-face masks to protect themselves from the sun’s rays, as getting a tan is a sign of being a farmer in the field.
Japanese girls are completely gaga over getting the ever-trending `yaeba’ teeth. The double-tooth look, which would generally be seen as an imperfection, comprises elongated canines -something like what actress Kirsten Dunst has. Considered cute and youthful, women in the country undergo cosmetic surgery to attach mini-fangs to canine teeth.
First developed in The Netherlands, extraocular implants easily come across as one of the weirdest forms of body modification.Known as eye jewellery, the process involves embedding a piece of platinum alloy, avail able in a variety of shapes like hearts and stars, underneath the cornea.
While only licensed ophthalmologists are allowed to perform the surgery, it is still illegal in many countries.
Elf ears best pictured by Cate Blanchett in The Lord Of The Rings. The popularity of pointy ears is often attributed to an Arizona-based body modification artist.Â The ear-shaping practice is also quite a buzz among hardcore Star Trek fans, who claim that it improves the music-listening experience.
Health experts, however, warn that the apparently fascinating ear makeover involves a sculpting process that is painful and irreversible.
The bagel-head trend traces its roots to Canada, but is a hit on Japan’s underground body modification scene. The nightmarish look is created by injecting saline into the forehead and then pressing in the centre of the swollen area with a thumb, until it takes the shape of a doughnut. The swelling distortion remains for 1624 hours. Inserting 3D art implants in the body is yet another trending bizarre act.
