The Kayan women of Northern Thailand are known for the exquisite and incredible brass coils they wear around their necks. They are often called the "long necks" or the "giraffe women" by outsiders and can wear up to 25 coils, which many never take off.

Body modifications are being seen more and more as tattoo culture is evolving too ; from horns, to pointed ears, eye ink, and piercings. This is counted as the extreme alternative beauty.
