Let me just share the story directly:
Since I was born with a fairly severe hearing loss, I'm pretty much required to wear hearing aids. I never liked to (still don't) but there's not much I can do about it. I decided rather than just put up with my condition, I could try and have a little fun with it. Hence, an Ear Head piercing enclosing the tube of my hearing aid.
[The first time] it rejected very quickly, and I got it redone this January, this time by by Anne at Studio 13 and a Half with a 16g barbell. Once it heals (assuming it ever does...) it will be a CBR as well [as you see in the photo].
It's quite swollen and unhappy right now. It gets bumped and yanked waaay too much in martial arts class!
