The fricken huge butchered earlobes make me want to retch.
Yeah, because modifying the mind is soooooo much easier, right?

And I quite like my large stretched earlobes, thanks.

Makes me think of trolls, ogres & orcs that we see in horror films and our nightmares!

Hardly defacing, she looks rather good that way

I recently had to put up with a lot of crap from a couple people about my desire to eventually get a (really nice) tattoo, maybe a piercing or two, and a street bike.


The age difference? 45 years. It must be (mostly) a generational gap kinda thing.

Well, I have a tattoo for the sole reason of covering up a nasty scar.


Who in their right mind would make huge holes in, and stretch their earlobes....thus making themselves look 1000 times grosser than normal.


What's next, lip plates..........oh yeah, I am sure weirdoes have already done that.

Wierdoes, or people whose culture has accepted it long ago as a form of beauty?

Lip plate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Been around for a loooong time
