Taboos and Subcultures: Extreme Bodies
Extreme Bodies
Season 9  |  Episode 4  |  SBS Viceland  |  August 1, 2020

Many in the West practice body modification to some degree, whether it's ear-piercing or breast implants. When people go to extremes with body modification, they provoke fear and disbelief. Take, for example, the world's most pierced woman, Elaine Davidson, with her 8000 plus piercings; Mary Jose Cristerna, with horn implants, pointed teeth, and body tattoos; pumped up female body builders, worshipped by some men for their strength and physique; and Japan's adventurous bagel heads, having saline injected into their foreheads for a temporary mutant thrill.
