They do have a point
It seems that the latest body modification trend amongst the kids these days is not Botox or tattoos, but having their ears sculpted into points...
The latest shocking trend? Ear sculpting! Why is this bizarre practice getting so popular? According to Dr. Lajos Nagy, a New York plastic surgeon, "Sculpted ears not only enhance the attractiveness of the face, but also improve the experience of listening to music."
Here is a news segment on it from a local news show...
Honestly, I think it's kind of cool.
Of course the risks, procedure, and healing process sound very painful (one of the many reasons I won't get a tattoo) and it could certainly hinder someone from getting a job in a very corporate environment.
But, cosmetically and aesthetically, I think they might actually look great on some people.
I have a big/long head, so the smaller pointed ears probably wouldn't work on me. But, if I knew that it wouldn't affect me or my family in any negative way, I'd definitely get my ears reshaped more like Vulcan ears.
And I'd probably do the eyebrows too.
I'm not kidding.
