7 Shocking Beauty Ideals Around The World

The weird cultures appear so normal to people who practice them but will shock the rest of the world and are often viewed as unusual. This list contains 7 of the most bizarre beauty standards around the world.

The internet might go crazy with Cara Delevingne’s messy eyebrows and Kim K’s perfectly contoured face but in other parts of the world, where religion and culture is deeply rooted, the standards of beauty have stayed the same and it’s something most of us will consider different. Not just mildly different, though – bizarre and strange and weird different!

Most of these are a bit shocking to be honest…

#Lip Plate

The Mursi ladies of Ethiopia put plates or discs in their bottom lips to stretch them out, increasing the plate size incrementally to make their pouts very large. This custom is a symbol of beauty and sexual maturity.

#Nose Plugs
The women of the Apatani Tribe of India are famous for wearing nose plugs. According to the Apatani, the nose plugs were worn by their ancestors to protect themselves and it has become a tradition for them.  

#Ta Moko
Tattoos are regarded as a sacred ritual in New Zealand. Ta Moko is a 1000 year-old tradition where mallets and chisels are used to mark an individual’s skin. These tattoos signify a female’s beauty, strength and fertility and a male’s readiness for adult responsibilities.

#Gum Tattoo
The women of Senegal go through gum tattoo because they believe that this makes their smile look better, thus, making them more attractive. It is also said to boost dental health and eliminate bad breath. 
#Long Neck
Beginning from an early age of 4, Kayan ladies in northern Thailand put a brass coil around their necks, adding more coils over the years, to elongate them by the time they become adult. A long neck is regarded as elegant and beautiful in this region.

#Scarring
In the Surma Tribe, men believe that bare skin is ugly. Young girls are being cut to create prominent scars. This is considered beautiful in Ethiopian tribes. The willingness to go through the scarring tradition is also an indication of emotional maturity which is considered attractive by the men of the tribe. 
#Lotus Feet
Foot binding has long been banned in China but it is still a well known tradition. Foot binding, also known as lotus feet, starts around the ages of 4 to 9 years old. The feet of the young girls were first soaked in warm herbs and animal blood, then the toes would be curled over to the sole of the foot and then bound with cotton bandages. The toes and arch are broken with force. The lotus feet was necessary for women in order to get married and have a better life.
