These photos of women from different countries challenge the way we see beauty


In some tribes within Indonesia, it is considered customary and beautiful for women to undergo a process known as teeth chiseling. In this practice, women file down their teeth until they are sharp and pointed. Fascinatingly, the procedure is incredibly painful.


Despite that fact, it is not at all common practice for women to use any forms of pain-numbing or anesthesia before undergoing the process. This is an example of just how unique human culture can become.
