A Nigerian website, BattaBox.com, released a video detailing the peculiar tattooed beauty trend.

“We help men who have black lips. We clean up their lips to make them pink lips,” says the tattoo artist in the video as he scribbles the Nicki-Minaj inspired tint to his Nigerian customer’s lips.
I don’t know about this one people. I’ve heard of permanent tattooing of various parts of the body like eyebrows, eyeliner and the likes, but your lips? Would you want your whistle blower to be permanently pink?
Women have been known to be the beauty craziness of the world but this new trend by Nigerian Men is perhaps the craziest.
Women are always flocking to the latest beauty craze to make themselves appear more beautiful. From concrete butt implants to miles and miles of sewn Indian hair, and butterfly-inspired eyelashes. There are no limits to how far women will go just to attract shallow thinking men.
Unrealistic Beauty standards set by some chauvinistic men is the reason women do it. So what is the reason behind the pink lip painting of these men? IF you have the answer please share so we might know.
