People Are Removing The Inside Of Their Ears As Part of Bizarre New Trend – So Gross!

Opinion | Here is the newest trend of self-mutilation and it is completely disgusting… and just plain dumb!

This trend called “conch removal” has gone way too far. I’m pretty confident that God designed our ears the way he did for a reason. I could imagine this having some permanent affects on your hearing.

Conch removal is a “body modification,” or as I say, self-mutilation trend where people get the middle “conch” area of their ears cut out.

What is the point of this procedure?? Well… uh, to look cool? Yeah, that’s it, they think it looks cool. Overstretched earlobe holes are played out, this is the new thing.

Well… There ya go! And please, please, please don’t trust a “body modification practitioner” with medical advice! Go to an otolaryngologist!
