These people all need Elf help…I mean, self-help. Surgically altering your body is nothing new especially with the fascination and popularity of tattoos and piercings. But this takes body modification to a new and some would say creative level. The procedure is called “ear pointing” and involves removing a wedge of tissue near your ear tip. The remaining to ends are then sewn or sutured together to give you a nice pointed ear resembling your favorite elf or for Star Trek fans, your favorite Vulcan character.
If you are interesting in having the surgical procedure done to enhance or de-enhance your social life, there are a few practitioners who can help such as Steve Haworth, who is credited with inventing the body modification of ear pointing. If you have the pain threshold and the time (healing can take months) then send us you photos of your ear pointing new look.
If you have the stomach for it, you can see the ear pointing procedure in the video at the bottom. The is a fair amount of blood, so be warned.
