35mm Lobes No More

This one goes out to all the piercers out there doing things like large gauge dermal punches on lobes. I don’t know if that’s what caused this lobe piercing to thin out and reject (it probably is not), but I can tell you that this “easy way out” method of jumping to larger gauge lobes can leave a person falling toward the situation below… If you want big healthy lobes, the best way is to go slow, gentle, and treat your body well. Yes, some people get lucky stretching recklessly, but don’t underestimate how heartbreaking it can be to lose big lobes.

(And don’t underestimate how quickly things can turn out like this if you make a wrong turn).

    How the hell can you ‘let’ something get that bad???

    It looks like he fell asleep drunk in an alley and his ear was partially chewed off by mice.

    Okay that is fucking gross! The sweaty body, hair that hasn’t been washed in addition to the decomposing/necrotic tissue….quite a package!

    Goddamn. I’m pretty desensitized to shit you find on the internet.. But this is about the worst thing I’ve seen, and it makes me feel physically ill. *shudder*heave*

    Posted on 03-12-2006 01:20:38 by c0rrosion
    oh. my. GOD. of all the fucked up lobes i’ve seen, those are the worst yet. not only do they look infected, dead, and ready to break, but they look… waterlogged? like they were bandaged improperly or something? in any case, BLEAGH.

    Posted on 03-12-2006 01:27:50 by Sade
    Oh my DAMN! He didn’t just make a wrong move he made a couple of wrong turns to end up with that.
    I can’t lie and say I have the best patience in the world,but I’ll be damned if I would let my impatience go so far as to allow some part of me to just decay…That’s just gross neglience *sivers*

    Posted on 03-12-2006 03:30:28 by spacedog

    Yeah. i want the story on this. Shannon?

    Posted on 03-12-2006 17:12:32 by herekittykitty
    That didn’t happen overnite…damn, he couldn’t make it look nastier if he tried. WTF? Wet gangrene? Seriously, if my ears looked like that I wouldn’t care if I lost my big lobes. I’d be glad as Hell to have my lobes surgically removed altogether.
    (Ick. Now I can’t eat my pasta dinner…)

    Posted on 03-12-2006 18:56:02 by katie

    Posted on 03-12-2006 23:56:49 by BadlyDrawnGirl
    helpful commentary?

    Uhm, what the hell would you want said to help the guy ?

    “wash yourself”?
    “Dont stretch to fast!” – Oops to late for that one!!
    “Better luck next time!” – Oops.. from the way thats lookin’ there isnt gonna BE a NEXT time.

    Want us to leave him instructions on how to take care of them NOW.. as opposed to before?!

    Good god, there isnt very many HELPFUL things you can say ..

    It makes me sad that people think they can skip gauges or ignore problems, or whatever the hell this person did =[.

    yuck! now I know what the weird stuff that is on kentucky fried chicken is : dead lobes! (I can’t possibly be the only one to think that it looks kind of like the weird crust on their French fries)

    Posted on 03-13-2006 17:42:36 by Come on now

    Posted on 03-13-2006 21:40:32 by BadlyDrawnGirl

    I would love to hear the story behind this.
    I can’t see how someone could be so negligent.
    When my lobes appear the slightest bit angry, I baby them til they are perfect again.
    Gross as.

    Posted on 03-22-2006 00:03:07 by etoile
    Wow, that’s probably among the more gross things I’ve ever seen on BME. I have looked through ALL the galleries, but that definitely is a top winner for grossest pic on the site.

    Posted on 04-06-2006 16:00:28 by Satanskitty36s
    Makes me wanna pick at it … hahaha.

  2. hmm looks a bit like decomposing roadkill.

    its a nice lesson for the rest of us
