In the Mentawaian village of Indonesia, women with chiseled pointy-sharp teeth are seen as being more beautiful.

This ritual is performed with crude instruments and without any anesthesia.

The tribe also believes that teeth chiseling maintains a balance between the body and the soul.

All done to keep the men happy and the soul in balance.
