An open and shut case

Don’t you just hate it when something happens and your entire earlobe is ripped open and is left dangling off the side of your head?

This is how the lobe looks now, two weeks after being closed up by Quentin from Kalima Emporium in Worthing, Sussex, UK.

I’m always amazed that body modification artists can reconstruct earlobes so well, yet some doctors can’t seem to figure out how to make a lobe look like a lobe again.

You can check the earlobe reconstruction gallery for shots of this lobe when it was first stitched up, as well as photos from other artists who can work miracles with a dangling piece of flesh.

  1. the tragus is pretty gnarly. but that earlobe is gorgeous! Quentin did such a great job.

  2. Lolol, it looks like his lobe melted! Looked, I suppose, now that it’s been reconstructed.

    Split tragus definitely squicks me out… Good reconstruction, though.

  5. you know, i think it would be pretty funny to see some pics of earlobe repair fails…
    someone should make a slideshow :)

  6. As a doctor, reconstructing ALL this stuff is a no-brainer.
    Good thing the DA’s and medboard authorities aren’t interested in modders W. scalpels.
