 Women in Senegal are their quest for beautiful smiles to extreme levels - by tattooing their gums black. They claim the procedure gives a whiter smile andprotects the gums and stops bad breath. The mixture is a combination of burnt oil and shea butter pressed into the gums before a needle is repeatedly pricked into it.

Mariéme  tells the interviewer: 'It hurts. I would never recommend this torture to anyone.'However, despite the pain she says she is more than happy with the results.

The smile, you were smiling dear,
Did excite me so much, That I.. had a feeling,
I never had before.

But after knowing you.. I had to run:
Because it's only.. a smile you've got.

LET YOUR BEAUTY COME FROM YOUR HEART
