Hi there,
I am pretty new to the body mod community. The only thing I've done is had my lobes pierced. (Piercing pagoda lol) One thing that I am really interested in is ear pointing. There is not a lot of information available about it online but I've found a few people who will do it, such as Samppa Von Cyborg, Russ Foxx, and Steve Haworth. I emailed Steve and they said they would be coming to the east coast this summer/fall, is there anyone else in the Boston, MA area interested in having him come here?

Other than that, does anyone have personal experience with ear pointing or any stories?

Any information would be appreciated.

since I haven't gotten much response, I have another question.
After getting your ears pointed, is it possible to pierce through the top of the point? or would the cartilage be too thick.

I'm hittin' the wall w/ this oneBang%20Head

I barely remember a Showcased photo w/ captions, or it shoulda been showcased from a member here - a  member had her ears pointed by forking/splitting and then suturing them together to the formed point required.

(i'm not clear on any removal that might've been needed 2 acquire the point desired)

I am guessin' that dependin' on original shape and the aftercare of where everything's healed, piercin' in the area is well more than possible. As for the intent of piercing so high up it HAS-TO-BE actually thru the healed  area from the mod - I'd expect a minimal 90 days from something like that*
I've asked a few friends of mine, years ago actually, about high up a pointing could range? Perhaps as to stretch the post-mod cartilage even farther i.e. creating a drooping effect to the side & less lateral/vertical effect. Out of my interest's sake, I was cautioned that the unsupported weight would have more give/sway the higher the stretching/pointing went.
(my jewelry of choice for that could attempt to mimic the droop/arch of the unsupported cartilage and numerous changes in angles that could be extensive in time... jewelry light enuff and considering mechanicals, you could try for bat-winged devices to match skin tone and skeletal structure with loaded micro springs within...i know i'm waaaay out there with this one - it's what i do best)

Best of luck and safest modding alwaysHat

Why are you so interested in ear-pointings? like what drew you to the conclusion that you want one? I'm just wondering because I'm thinking about getting ear pointing done too and I'm from new england

I'm not sure if he does them, but if you're in the New England area you may also want to look up Ryan Ouellette at Precision Body Arts in Nashua, NH. I was pretty sure he only did scarification until recently, when I learned that he does some other procedures as well.

Steve Haworth is obviously an option as well but if you don't want to wait or have someone closer do the work check Ryan out.
