A few months ago Lostetrnl had both ears pointed, and you can see them above freshly sutured. Unfortunately, unlike most of the ear pointing I’ve posted here, his ears strongly resisted changing shape, and his cartilage forced itself into its original configuration as best it could and effectively “opened up”. At two months, pictured below, his ears are definitely in need of a touch-up, with the left one being especially difficult.
EDIT: I’m told that the left ear was in an accident which caused some of the sutures to rip out, allowing the ear to open even more than the right one did… Hopefully I’ll be back on IAM soon so I can do more follow-up on posts so I don’t have to insert edits!
I don’t have any reason to believe the practitioner made a mistake on how this was done, so I’m not mentioning that here, but I should say that this is an artist that’s done lots of ear pointing with great results in a vast majority — people should remember that things can always go wrong even in the best of situations!
