► Subscribe to BattaBox on YouTube: http://goo.gl/4dgy2r There's a new mens fashion craze sweeping Nigeria - to tattoo your lips pink. So BattaBox heads to a tattoo parlour to find out ... why?! "It's a mens fashion label," says one customer as he gets ready for the pink lips. "It's to get the girls." The tattoo parlour owner - named "Only Boy" John - then takes his needle and puts a pink balm on the lower lip. The whole process takes about 30 minutes and can be painful. The tattoo artists insist they sterilise the needle and use a new one. Only Boy then wipes away the balm with cotton wool to reveal a sore but pinker lip. "When people go for interviews, they will look at their face and lips," explains Only Boy John. "And people will be scared of their lips because they are black," But perhaps the scariest thing is that this latest Nigerian mens fashion trend is permanent- "This is for life," explains Only Boy. So gist us - would you tattoo your lips pink for the sake of Mens Fashion in Nigeria? **** CLICK HERE TO SUBSCRIBE FOR NEW BATTABOX VIDEOS EVERYDAY: http://battabox.com/subscribe/ ...

This for women is great for those like me who have Dark hyper pigmentation on the lips. I look like I have permaNent black liner on my lips. I’ll be getting mines done but in the USA of course.

I'm from Bahia Brazil. I am mixed with Yoruba indigenoud and portuguese. The hair and face doesn't lie. I have little portuguese and indian so i'm just a light skinned black boy. And i have very pinkish big lips and i feel gay sometimes. Actually they are beautiful. But you don't know how much I WANT TO BE DARK. I want to be the darkest thing, dark everywhere including the lips. BLACK SKIN AND LIPS ARE BEAUTIFUL. And the ones that think this way are usually not black.

Yikes, apart from the idea of wanting pinker lips being a man, (to each their own) I highly doubt that was a clean or sterilized needle, the parlor looks really dirty, he dint use gloves and he literally scratched the surface of the mans lips using ink from a bottle cap. This needs to be stopped before someone gets seriously infected or lands up with a non curable disease. Not good.

Funny how majority of the comments here are about sanitation and disease. If people can't see that something this idiotic is able to become a trend in Africa with everything else going on, anyone with a mind to do this sort of thing is a waste of oxygen already and health issues shouldn't even be considered, their minds are beyond repair.

Naturally handsome. God bless
The most horrible thing i even see in my life.
Anita Done (5 months ago)
They should always change to a new needle for every new customer and to also wear gloves and apply sterilizer to prevent the spread of HIV, hepatitis and other blood transmitted diseases, but overall you are more handsome and more responsible when you look natural like the way God created you, a thing like this is better for women and not men.
Dominique King (5 months ago)
Where’s the gloves? why isn’t the machine covered? the surface isn’t clean and for pink lips they are willing to trade diseases and bacterial infections.

This is silly and crazy. 😂😂you have plaque on your teeth but you’re more worried about having red lips because people (in a country filled with black people with the same/similar lips) ‘will be scared of you’??? Especially as a man!???You need deliverance.

Another disturbing beauty phenomena courtesy of colonial mentality. Did Fela not come and tell you back in the 70s? You should be ashamed to bleach your skin, pink your lips. What in the hell are we doing for our future generations? Na wa oo it’s so depressing. I could NEVER enjoy this story, only sit back in despair and disbelief. This is 2018, no light, govt is a shambles, SARS running a mock on the streets, poverty is rife yet people want to pink their lips? I blame all of this people who laugh at dark skin, at blackness, wanting to be “yellow” wusai?! It’s embarrassing and pitiful all at ones. Our people are lost beyond the labyrinth of self hate. Anyone who does this should be publicly flogged I swear. Our ancestors are turning in their graves
