Subdermal Implants Come in All Shapes and Sizes

When Frank Sinatra sang his hit song I've Got You Under My Skin, we're sure he wasn't crooning about subdermal implants, because they weren't around in his time. Today, there is a whole new meaning to Frank's phrase about love, in the growingly popular practice of implanting "body jewelry" beneath the skin's surface, which results in a raised design.

"Round eyes." It was once a derogatory slang term Asians would use at times to refer to Westerners, but particularly, it applied to Americans.

How ironic that an Asian woman's almond-shaped eyes, thought to be mysterious and alluring to many Western men, are now considered an ugly deformity in some Asian cultures, most notably in Korea and China, where the Western look is now coveted.

No, They’re Not Mannequins…  These Dolls Are Made of Real Flesh and Blood

Remember when little girls used to dress up their dolls? Well, now some girls who've grown up are into a new form of extreme body modification that can make them look like living plastic dolls. It's a body mod trend that's becoming increasingly popular and quickly going global, although the look has been trendy for some time now in Asia (the doll-like look originated in Japan a few years ago) and Ukraine, where young women, mostly teenage girls, are transforming their bodies into "living dolls." They're sometimes called "human Barbies" because these ladies yearn to look like the actual Barbie doll, the toy typically associated with Western society's vision of flawless female beauty with perfect proportions.
