You know what they've always said: Pain is beauty. People are willing to go to great lengths to look fabulous. But this new trend takes it to new extremes. We're not talking about roughing it in some painful heels. It's much worse.

Yeah, so this is really something people are really doing: getting freckles tattooed on their face, in the same vein of cosmetic tattooing as eyebrow tattoos. Eyebrow tattoos seemed to really catch on, so this could genuinely sweep the country. Get used to the thought: the freckles you're seeing on that stylish girl in front of you might be an expensive facade!

Yikes -- this sounds painful. Take a look for yourself, you made not even be able to tell these freckles were tattoo'd on by an artist:

Like many of these people, I've had freckles all my life, and I haven't always enjoyed them. But then I remembered that as I've gotten older, my freckles have faded a lot, to the point where they're not even noticeable if it isn't summer. I do genuinely wish they were darker again!

Enough to get them tattooed back on? Well, maybe not.

I might not have consistent freckles, but at least no one is poking my face with a needle. Sounds way too painful to even consider. Would you try it out?
