Sharpening of Teeth (Indonesia)

Women in Indonesia’s Mentawai Tribe of West Sumatra grind and file their teeth to get them sharpen. This is done by women to look beautiful, and mind you this is a very painful procedure done using hammers and needle. The pain is just the price paid for beauty in this Mentawai Tribe tradition.

Chiseling teeth to get sharpened teeth is tradition, weird, bizzarre traditions
