Awwww, crap. I had meant to stop posting so many pictures from Shawn O’Hare (The Pain Parlor, Oxnard) because I feel like this blog is kind of getting saturated… but Phil put this one aside for me and didn’t tell me about who did it. It’s the tattoo that I most wanted to share with you, but of course the piercing is by Shawn. Either way, enjoy!

He doesnt have an ear channel. or whatever its called, whever the sound is meant to get to your ear drums.
He just has skin, no hole….

wow… yeah, that’s really strange looking. maybe it’s just the angle? i didn’t know ear canals could be sealed.

I dont think its sealed or a strange angle, it should be right behind the tragis.. unless its VERY VERY little.

Maybe a plug was put in to dampen the sound of the machine, then drawn over with a marker to complete the effect?

Maybe, but the ‘plug’ is the exact same sskin tone.

look at your ear,, i have skin there not a hole…the ear canal is not visible if your looking at the side of someones head….

Well actually if you look at similar photots all over bme you can see the begining of the ear cannel.
Lol, look at my ear? i’ll give it a go…

the part that leif is referring to that covers the ear canal is on this guy, but is greatly diminished. LOOK AT IT, he’s got no ear canal.
Obviously something happened to his ear or he purposely underwent some modification… Or he was born like that. Which was probably the whole reason for the spiderweb tat in the first place, to decorate that closed up ear.

I was looking at peoples ears today (as you do), and discovered that the majority of times the ear canal cannot be seen, ie. can only be seen from certain angles…
