Anarchy Ear

Last year Eric Stango of Lifestyles in Connecticut entered this over-the-top ear project in the Earmageddon contest. It didn’t win, but I think they should have given him some special Chaos Magick award or something. This seems like the sort of piercing that might grow on the ear of Tetsuo the Iron Man. The sort of thing that happens when one of Joeltrons “trondustrials” escapes from Arkham Asylum. My hat would be off to Eric and this piercing, but the piercing already stole my hat and ate it. I forgive it though, because it’s an awful lot of fun to watch.

By the way I want to point out that what you see hanging out at the bottom, from the tragus and the lobe, aren’t just dangly bits — they’re actually attaching to a surface piercing on the sideburn, as you can see from the inset “before” picture. Click to zoom in for a better look.

  1. Cool idea, but quite possibly one of the most pissed-off looking ears I’ve ever seen. Holy bumps, Batman.

  2. If that’s the most pissed off ear you’ve seen, you’re very lucky. All I see is a bit of dry skin… If the ear had been cleaned/moisturized before the photo and the lighting had been more even it would have been invisible… More than anything it shows the importance of the technical issues around the photography.

  3. the only thing that looks pissed off is the tragus and they can be a pain at the best of times. i like the ear it’s busy without being a clusterfuck.

  4. Alot of the irritation came from simply snapping the pieces in. I wish we would’ve waited a few days…

  5. I am not a fan of this at all. I don’t mean to be a hater. I just am super anal about symmetry, and even #’s of piercings. I think it’s super creative and interesting tho. I just wouldn’t want it on my ear.
