اکثر والدین اپنے بچوں کو چیونگم کھانے سے منع کرتے ہی کیونکہ ان کا خیال ہے کہ یہ ان کی صحت کے لئے اچھی نہیں ہے لیکن اب سائنسدانوں نے کہا ہے کہ چیونگم کھانے سے منہ میں موجود کروڑوں بیکٹیریا دور ہوجاتے ہیں۔

I Arrange My Vegan Food Into Detailed Bowl Mandalas

by Amalia Bussard

Hi, I'm Amalia! I'm currently a Senior at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. Five years ago I began my "clean eating" journey. By removing unnatural and processed foods from my diet, I was introduced to the wonderful world of super foods. I was inspired by these foods, they were all so beautiful and vibrant in appearance, I considered each one to be a work of art in itself! I couldn't help but arrange them in an artful way every time I'd make something to eat.
About three months ago I decided to create an Instagram account called "The Wholesome Bowl". Using food as my medium, I create vegan/vegetarian culinary art pieces, photograph them, and then share them with the world on a daily basis via Instagram. My drive to share these food art mandalas with the world stems from a deep desire to inspire people. With a little guidance, we are all capable of living a healthy, wholesome lifestyle!

Choosing a new profile picture for your Facebook is serious business, but some people take it more seriously than others. There's one guy who takes a different profile picture each week, transforming himself into a different character each time with the help of costumes, make-up, and well-chosen locations.
We aren't sure who he is, but thanks to his friend, who posted these images on reddit, we get to see his creative Facebook profile images all the same.
It seems like he's dedicated quite a bit of effort to his Facebook profile photos, but they're definitely more creative than your average selfie. What do you think about his photos – creative or conceited?

Once upon a time, having a couple of tattoos was the definition of body modification, at least across the US and Europe. But extreme body modifications are growing in popularity, and those who claim it as a lifestyle choice are always looking for ways to take it to new levels.

However, body modification isn't something confined to grungier corners of San Francisco or New York. A number of cultures have practiced body modification since before the Magna Carta was signed. In Asia, for example, body mods have literally shaped society over the centuries, from foot binding to neck rings. In some areas, neck rings are still used today as a sign of marriage and social status. The more copper and brass rings are worn, the higher the social and economic standing within the tribe.
It appears that wearing these rings elongates the neck – but that is just an illusion. The added rings are actually pushing down the collar bones and ribs, eventually twisting them into an angle 45 degrees lower than what would be typical, visually suggesting that the neck has lengthened.

Lip plates have been implemented by tribes in Africa for centuries, and are now being appropriated by the US body mod scene. Traditionally, the process of lip stretching would start just after a young tribeswoman reached puberty. The young woman's mother would usually begin the process by removing her daughter's two front bottom teeth, and then making an incision below the lip and inserting the clay disk into the hole while healing occurs.

After healing, the young woman would replace the disk with a slightly larger one that she herself has created. Like with neck rings in Asian cultures, size indicates "worth" with lip rings. The larger the stretching of a young woman's lower lip, the more cows her father would be able to ask for as dowry upon marriage.

Much like lip plates, ear gauging is all about stretching the body far beyond what would seem like reasonable parameters. Currently one of the most popular mods, ear gauging takes the long-since mundane concept of ear piercing to a whole new level. After a piercing, a small diameter ring is placed into the new formed hole. Every couple of weeks a larger circle is squeezed into the space slowly stretching the ear and creating an ever widening hole. At a certain point, some gaugers replace the open rings with ornamental discs or other decorative insert.

Joel Miggler, a German body modification enthusias,t takes the concept of gauge piercings to an extreme. He has gauged out his cheeks and nose – leaving open holes that glimpse into areas that (by all that is good and holy) were never intended to be seen by another.

Joel's face gauging has created gaps large enough for him to stick his surgically split tongue through, a truly off-putting sight for most. He has plugs that he is able to insert into the piercings, which become especially useful when it comes time to eat or drink anything.

As recently as the 1990s, tongue splitting (also known as tongue forking or bifurcation) was nearly unheard of and unseen in society; now it is now considered to be common practice in the world of body modders. This alteration can be accomplished several ways – including cutting with a scalpel, piercing with the implement being moved nearer and nearer the end until the split is complete, or via cauterizing and tying off. By all suggestions, this procedure should be performed by a plastic or oral surgeon, but some choose to perform this very painful modification on themselves.

Corset piercing is an extreme modification that uses multiple piercings lined up in such a way that when ribbon is looped through the rings it creates a corset of sorts.

Corset piercings can be done in various areas of the body; the most common of these being down the chest, back, or legs. For more…dramatic…members of the body mod community, corset piercings can also occur on or around the genital area.

Bagel heads are a mod subculture that (at least for now) seems to be most popular in Japan. Aptly named due to the bagel-shaped infusion prominent on the forehead, this modification is sure to be among the strangest to anyone outside of the mod community.

The bizarre look of the bagel head is achieved by injecting a saline solution directly into the forehead of the individual Modder. The procedure itself is painful and takes approximately two hours. This seems like a lot to go through, especially for something that would not typically be considered either attractive or flattering among novice modders. Thankfully, the effect only lasts between 15 and 24 hours based on the skull structure of the individual.

Piercings are no big deal, right? Ear piercing has been one of the most common of practices for generations. But what about someone who has more than 4,200 piercings? Meet Elaine Davidson, a former nurse in the UK, who holds the record as the most pierced woman in the world.

Australian man Lucky Diamond Rich has one of the most modded bodies in the world. With an assortment of piercings, gauges, and a split lip he has most of the bases covered; however, his tattoos are what really separate him from the pretenders. Lucky has it all covered (literally) with 100 percent of his body splashed in tattoos. Yes, that includes foreskin.

Last is the world's most modified woman, Maria Jose Cristerna. Adding to the claim that most lawyers are blood sucking ambulance chasers, this former attorney has spent a great amount of time and money transforming herself into a 'vampire.' Sporting many of the other modification examples above, Cristerna also boasts several implanted objects under her skin as well as filed and sharpened teeth. She travels the world with DJ Gis Sanchez to perform for masses of exhilarated fans.
Ripley's has recently immortalized Cristerna in wax, with a life size sculptures as a monument to her extreme modifications. Her likenesses are now on display in Ripley's museums across the globe.

Improving Nature? The World Of Extreme Body Modification


D-Bro, a Japanese design brand, has created a unique set of mirrored cups called "Waltz" that gain their striking patterns and colors by reflecting them from the saucers they come with.
First, the cups, which are made from Hasami porcelain, are coated with palladium, a precious metal rarer than platinum and gold. The cups must be absolutely perfect, because any small distortion or bump will ruin the effect. Next, they are matched with saucers that have anamorphic designs (much like the artwork in our anamorphic mirror art post). These designs look distorted on the saucers but are transformed into more ordered forms by the mirrored cups.
