It less looks like a fashion statement, and more like a horrifying mess.

Next, we have a real life horror known as foot binding. This insanely painful practice was used in China around the 10th century.

Finally, we have Darth Maul from Star Wars. This vicious villain tattooed his entire face in black in order to intimidate his foes.
