  1. WOW GUY GREAT JOB!!! BUT I WONDER :AFTER GETTING THAT FANTASTIC DIMENSION Don’t U HAVE ANY REGRETS???I SAY THIS TO U BECAUSE I FEEL TOTTALY IDENTIFIED WITH THAT SIZE U HAD BUT WAS YOUR CHOICE ,NOT MINE …

    ANYWAY U LOOK MAGNIFICENT AFTER THE PROCEDURE N I HOPE U DOING EVEN BETTER WITH TIME BRO

    LAST THING IS THAT ILLBE WAITING FOR U TO XPLAIN TO ME STEP BY STEP WT HAPPENNED THERE…
    CYA .

    GATO.

  2. i wonder what the reason was why he went back to “normal”? (i mean, i think he looks much better without them, but my opinion obviously doesn’t come into it)

  3. I think it suits him better without them, some peoples face structure just fits them better.

  4. Photos like these make me excited. I plan on having my lobes removed (They are at just over an inch at the moment) but I’m still looking for an artist in the UK who can help. Thanks for these photos, they give me butterflies!

  5. wow they did a nice job. As much as I love stretched ears, I actually think he looks better without them. I love his medusa though.

  6. I agree he looks better without them, but it is a shame that people are having them repaired after so much effort put in to stretching them.

    How old is he may I ask?

  7. That’s weak.
    Body mods are for life.
    if you can’t handle that, then you shouldnt have stretched your ears to begin with.

  8. Sometimes people do it for the wrong reasons, Rose. Maybe he was trying to be cool, and realized it wasn’t his thing.

    Unless you’re cutting stuff off, no bod mod is for life.

  9. tent, hardcore shirt, trees…maybe I’m wrong but may it be that this picture was taken at the pressure fest?

  10. “That’s weak.
    Body mods are for life.
    if you can’t handle that, then you shouldnt have stretched your ears to begin with.”

    this is stupid. if he chooses to stretch his ears he can choose to rebuild them.
    body mods are about choice, not making a choice and being forever trapped by it.

  11. For life? Really? Funny, I’ve never once signed a “for life” clause on release paperwork before getting a mod.

    Sometimes people’s ideal aesthetic for themselves change. Sometimes, they must sacrifice one ideal to achieve another. Stretched lobes hardly count in the “for life” category. Unless, of course, you’re one of those people who wish to be solely identified and appreciated for their “mods” and can’t operate outside such notion.

  12. they do look good before but i prefer after which is weird, as i love big lobesss :).
    & DAMN he’s fine haha!

  13. Rose- you are okay with people modifying themselves but not unmodifying themselves?

    If you believe that people should have the right to choose to stretch their ears then it would follow that they should have the right to downsize their ears.

    Your comment makes you as closed minded as someone who thinks that stretching is gross and that no one should do that.

  14. If you follow Rose’s logic: When someone falls into a well, they should not be rescued. After all, they shouldn’t have been around the well to begin with since falling in was a possibility.

  15. whats up with so many people doing this now?

    or if not that, its getting a lot more attention.
    but ill never understand it.
    i love my lobes.

  16. Good god the dude is mega-hot. I also like the idea of modifying, then re-modifying, and letting mods change along with the person. It can work with piercings (stretched/downsized), tattoos (cover-ups, add-ons, removals) and ear stretching! It’s like a constant evolution – how great!

  17. He does look far much more attractive without them and it’s a bit weird to say that… I just don’t really like the look of lobes when they sort of move so they’re really sticking out. Very cute boy though

  18. Hey hey, whats in that pill bottle he’s holding? I’ll take two of whatever it is.

    Oh, well-done reconstruction.

  19. kaissa, alot of people, like myself, are doing it for the reason that in most proffesional settings huge lobes arent acceptable and employment comes before stretched lobes

  20. Rose,
    why do bod mods have to be through life? why cant they just be to help you get through a phase in your life? i had my septum pierced for only a couple months and recently took it out. i loved having it, but it was time to let it go as i moved on. whats so wrong with that?

  21. Some people end up joining the military and that forces them to have lobe recontruction. My friend had to do that, and she doesn’t regret either of her choices, stretching in the first place or having them reconstructed. I’m curious as to why he chose to get rid of them. Either way, looks good.

  22. i’m not reading the other comments…

    i’m sure he has great reasons for sewing up his lobes and i certainly don’t judge him on that.

    but god it makes me sad every time i see it. i think big lobes are so gorgeous.

    and while i’m not saying this is HIS reason….it seems like so many people are trying to stretch super big, super fast, for fashion reasons, knowing they can be stitched up later. it took me so long to get to 1 1/2″ and (at almost 27 years old with a professional job) i love them the most. it just bothers me to think that a lot of people just don’t fucking care.

    anyways…..this guy looks great with or without. no matter his reasons.

  23. I’m surprised that in 43 comments, the term “man pretty” hasn’t been used yet. And that guy is REALLY fucking man pretty.

  24. i’m in accordance with a lot of you here… i think he’s beautiful with and without stretched ears… and the removal does seem to fit his face better on a purely aesthetic level in my opinion (which i’m surprised to say because i’m all for big lobed boys). and i think having ears removed is just as much a body mod as stretching them out! the evolution of becoming who you are… and whoever did them did an ace job!

  25. Nice reconstruction, and I think it’s fine that a persons mods can change with them.
    I started stretching my ears in my early teens (when in these parts it was completely out there) and am seriously considering this procedure purely because of the amount of kids I see with stretched ears. It might seem petty or shallow, but there are some things you just don’t want to be associated with.
    Liz, let us know about artists wiling to undertake this in the UK.

  26. mm i’m definitely with the ‘too many people are doing it now’
    thing
    it’s true in a way
    it’s just bare annoying when they ask you if it hurt and say it’s disgusting
    then a week later they ask you to borrow what you started with
    i love my lobes more than anything and i plan on going much bigger than their current half inch state
    but who knows if i’ll need smaller ones in the future, sad to think

    i’m just going to laugh at the kids with torn lobes from stretching way too fast cos they think it’s ‘hardcore’ and ‘everyone’s doing it so i have to fit in’ (:

  27. I agree with most of the people on te site. He looks better without them.

    he’s damn hot either way.

  28. I started stretching my ears about a year ago.
    I want my ears at inch one day at least.
    My husband has inch and a half lobes.
    I just do not get people who go through all th stretching then remove them.

  29. HOT.
    Pity about the lobes though, but he does look better post reconstruction. Must say that the medusa suits him well, even though his face isn’t symmetrical.

  30. love the look, it suits your cute face, an wats dat in your hand? would love to hav a chat with you some time soon.
