I ave never liked this look at all.I cannot fathom why anyone would want to do this to their ears.When it is done as part of a traditional tribal custom,that is a whole other matter,but I STILL do not like it!!!
I wouldn't want to do it to myself but then there are plenty of things I don't want to do that others think are a good idea! I have no opinion either way on other people doing it - their body, their decision. It doesn't make any difference to me, so why should I care one way or another?
I agree too, don't care what others do to themselves as long it is not hurting anyone else... this is not for me... don't know anyone with this type of ear piercing so don't now how I would feel about it then? Don't know how the ear reacts after taking the ring out either...
I really like it! In my opinion each to their own. I have had my ears stretched to 10mm. I wear wooden plugs so the holes aren't obvious unless I wear tunnels. I would love to go bigger but am happy with my collection of tunnels and don't want to have to buy more!
I am not a fan of that sort of ear piercing. I've always wondered what happens when someone decides they don't want it anymore. Seems it would be difficult to grow back? Shrink back? How does it work!?
No, it doesn't shrink back at all. The only way to fix it surgically is to literally cut off all the hanging skin and stitch the ends. So in the end you lose virtually all your earlobe. My friend worked for a surgeon who did this, so I know this for sure.
It's very obvious and requires surgery to reverse so it's the kind of body modification that you'd need to really think through before getting (whether it would hamper your chances of employment etc.) I probably wouldn't get one myself (I'd be nervous about snagging my earlobes on something and ripping them since I saw a documentary where a girl had someone rip hers on purpose while she was out clubbing) but to each his or her own.
I'm not keen on them at all and constantly imagine taking the plug out and then doing you hair with a brush, or roller brush, and snagging it in the looping skin and ripping it. I think I am going to faint.
The people I've seen with this type of piercing are the types who are unlikely/don't want to get conventional jobs anyway, so it's either a way to say they don't want a job or they don't care and employers have to take them as they are.
My son has mutilated himself with this type of piercing. I dislike it intensely. His ears will never look normal even with plastic surgery. He says he doesn't care for normal looking ears. Thank goodness his attempt to split his tongue failed- if you google it you will see. It looks demonic. Like a snake tongue. Hopefully he has outgrown his desire to do these things.
