Tragus to Transverse/Vertical Lobe Piercing

A few days ago I posted a set of interesting industrials (which I’ve done before, and of course there’s the big industrial piercing galleries on BME as well with approaching 8,000 photos now), but I thought this placement by Trevor at Urban Art in Mesa, Arizona was interesting — a tragus to vertical lobe project.

  1. Eeeh, I love vertical lobe piercings, I know if I had that set up though, I’d likely do some serious damage to myself.

  2. that seems some pretty silly jewellery, i can see that easily causing some damage. Someones trying too hard. That must put more pressure on the holes.

  3. That looks pretty awesome, but I don’t like how the bar seems to be pulling on the tragus. It looks like it might cause unwanted pressure. But interesting idea, nonetheless.

  4. actually the tragus is completely healed. the vertical lobe was done as a well thought out addition. and yes richard i am trying hard. i try hard everyday. whats so silly about a barbell with a slave ring attatched? out of curisity.

  5. That’s pretty darn cool man.

    And what’s with all these haters? It’s a very low movement area and your tragus (which is what i’m assuming you are worried about) is a pretty strong little fucker. It’s also quite obvious that the vertical lobe is the new addition so why would u be worried about the ‘extra pressure’ of the minute weight of a barbell on a fully healed cartilage piercing?

  6. #7 and #8, where is the hate? i said it looked silly, don’t over-react. I just personally think that it looks awkward and ill-fitting. Those are my opinions, and I’m as free to post them as you are to post yours.

  9. damn…wasn’t there some repeat post filter at one time?

    but anyways, i love it. its unique because i don’t see that every day.

  10. i actually like the feed back. however, i think its hard to explain your work on modblog. i didnt know i was modblogged till someone pointed it out. your welcome to your opinion and to state it. i just dont see whats “silly”

  11. I don’t think it looks like it’s pulling at all. There’s extra room at either end of the barbell and the ring will simply move with it if it rises or falls. And I don’t see any side-pull either.

  13. I really love tranversal lobes. I’ve been wanting to set something up were I can put a barbell thru a single flared eyelet. I think I’d have to get it custom made tho.
