While collecting hundreds of human bones as trophies is not an uncommon practice among historic tyrants, serial killers and supervillains, it's pretty damn creepy when it's the hobby of a practicing doctor (even when it's not Hannibal Lecter). Just imagine: you're an incoming patient at a high-class cosmetic surgery clinic, and entering the doctor's office for your first consultation, you encounter these gigantic glass towers filled with human jawbones:

Obviously this horrific sight didn't discourage wealthy patients of a plastic surgeon in Seoul, South Korea, who was recently fined and ordered to remove the towers, which contained around two thousand jaw fragments. Most of the bones were discarded bits from a very popular cosmetic procedure called “double-jaw” surgery.
 
According to Medical Daily, photos of the towers were actually posted to the clinic's website, and were only taken down after they went viral and stirred up controversy, finally leading to health officials penalizing the doctor for failing to properly dispose of medical waste.
