African Men Tattoo Lips Pink to be More Attractive? (Video)

It’s very important that you feel beautiful and indeed beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  Apparently in different countries in Africa, gums and lips are important attributes that must be enhanced.  Earlier this month, we reported Senegalese women tattooing their gums black.  Now, the men want to show off their trick to attraction.

According to the Huffington Post, there are men in Nigeria that feel it is more attractive to have a pink lower lip. So, like the ladies of Senegal, they make sure it is pronounced by tattooing their pink on to their lip.  Don’t judge!  We tattoo everything from the rooter to the tooter in the U.S.  Hell! Lil’ Wayne may end up with this one.  That’s the only thing he hasn’t tattooed.

The cost of the procedure starts at $35 depending on the lip, according to the technician that is pinking a guy in his chair.  In the video, the technician is hard to understand in the beginning and it seems that the tattoo isn’t permanent and men come back to get their tattoo re-pinked.  Makes sense!  Some folks get their colored tattoos re-inked when they feel the color has faded.

Check it out for yourself!  Think this one will catch on here?
