The most bizarre fashion trends have never stood the test of time. While the exceptions to this rule have been listed below, you might find yourself falling prey to some of these weird fashion trends.
1. Eye tattoo, Canada
This is an irreversible procedure that is medically prescribed for people with scratch-marked eye tissues to improve vision. The eye tattooing procedure is now growing equally popular in Australia too. As the ink injected into the eye is the same as the ink used to tattoo the rest of the body, initial side effects might include ‘crying black ink’ for a while.
2. Mexican pointed boots
Originally found in several rural towns of Mexico, people have started altering these boots to suit their style by elongating the toe of these boots up to 5 feet and curling them at the tip. Some of these pointy boots are so bizarre, that the tips of some pairs are as high as one’s waist. These elf-like boots are featured in competitions at nightclubs.
3. Eye jewellery, Netherlands
A one-minute long procedure, which costs $3000, pieces of platinum alloy are modified in various shapes like hearts and are inserted underneath the cornea. The platinum implants are worn as a fashion accessory despite the risks. `New shapes and designs can be swapped with the old ones.
4. Bagel head injections, Japan
One of Japan’s outrageous fashion trends, a bagel protrusion can be obtained by injecting saline into the forehead and then making an indentation in the middle with a finger. A temporary procedure, the entire process takes around 2 hours while the bagel head disappears in 16-24 hours as the body absorbs the saline.
5. Face-Kini, China
Face-Kini is a colourful protective mask that comes in various designs, to shield the face from exposure to the sun. Strictly restricted to beaches only, these masks are worn with a full body suit for complete protection. The face masks also repel insects and are worn by many who shun tanned skin for its negative associations.
