Lip stretching is a practice that has been around since 8700 BC. The question is, how do you eat with the disks in?
A pierced uvula? I would make sure to chew extra carefully before swallowing.
Teeth Chiseling is a tradition often performed without any anesthesia by the Mentawai people in Indonesia. If you’re thinking about doing it- I suggest downing a bottle of vodka.

Extraocular Implant- also known as eyeball jewelry. Basically- it’s a piece of surgical steel embedded into your eyeball. Sounds safe.
Neck elongation- a practice still used in some Asian and African cultures. It’s apparently a symbol of beauty. I’m wondering what happens when the rings are taken off?
I’m not sure that wearing a t-shirt or shoes would be even be an option right now.
Horn implants are a usually a silicone mold that is placed underneath the skin. The skin forms around the mold and hooray- you have horns.
Believe it or not- but cornea tattooing is also performed for improvement of sight. It is also done for “cosmetic purposes.”
The tongue zipper. This one doesn’t have any historical reference. It’s just crazy.
