I always get asked the question of why I stretched my ears from a lot of people, the answer is real simple, because I wanted to, because I like it. They still turn off a lot of folks but sometimes people don’t even notice that I’ve had my ears stretched twice on my lobes for nearly 9 years. It’s always amusing to me when people find out that I can put my finger through my ear hole especially when they get a bit grossed out, luckily for me though, most people don’t seem to care. It’s nice that most don’t mind since there’s still a culture surrounding tattoos or body modifications to some folks that the only people who do it are bad news.
It’s peachy that it’s becoming commonplace since more folks will be open to it but it almost makes me feel like I’m super vanilla because of that. Nevertheless I enjoy what I have and I enjoy seeing others garner a passion for it too. Bless.
