Today in bizarre/gross things human beings come up with: tooth tattoos.
According to dentist Steven Landman of Ellington Dental Associates in Connecticut, people are now getting their teeth inked. While this is the first (and hopefully last) we've heard of it, Landman says he has been performing this procedure for the past decade.
It gets even weirder/funnier: in order to have the procedure done on your pearly whites, they can't actually be pearly whites. "Tatteeth," as it's being called, is only meant for patients who are in need of a dental crown. How it works is a dentist takes an impression of the tooth where the crown will later be fitted. The tooth mold is then sent to a dental lab where the design is added. For $75 to $200, you can have your favorite art work on your teeth. And the possibilities are endless—people have gotten Homer Simpson, the Oakland Raider's logo, and cats.
