The “Bagel Head” Beauty Trend Reminds Me That We Are All Beautifulby Lauren Passell on September 26, 2012
Keroppy, a Japanese artist who pioneered the “bagel head” movement, toldVice that it’s about innovation. “People who like extreme body modification want to find their own way of doing things, and they’re always looking for new ways to do that. The more progressive the scene gets, the more these people have to experiment and go their own way.”
I have a hard time even watching this video, and I am almost positive that I wouldn’t do it myself. But what if everyone around me was dong it? What if I was told it was the definition of beauty? What if Angelina Jolie did it? What if my mother and grandmother did it? What if it was all I knew? Then I would probably get it too.
If there is proof that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, this is it. Whatever you have going on, it’s beautiful. WHAT.EVER. It could be a HUGE BAGEL on your face. Someone will be able to find that beautiful, because it is.
