Be welcome

Dear visitor, this blog is written by the band Other Day. We got our ears pointed and finally decided to share our experiences and feelings with you, because we realized the problems in finding all information about this procedure gathered on one site in the internet. We hope you'll enjoy this blog and find some information you're looking for.

If you have any questions that aren't answered here, please feel free to contact us on Facebook or via comments.

Day 00

Sunday, 16th October, was the great day for our ear pointing by Steve Haworth and drove almost five hours to Sandras studio "Obscene pierce 'n ink" in Wesel to meet him. It was the last chance to meet him this year in Germany 'cause he was heading seminars during the BMXnet conference in Essen.

After eating delicious waffles and talking about all the formal stuff (are you hemophile etc.) it was time for Steve to mark our ears and to took a last picture of them to show us the before-and-after-effect. From now on everybody was wearing surgical masks... scary. Sandra, Steve and his cute assistant took great care of us during the whole procedure. Everybody was asking again and again if the pain is bearable and cleaned our ears and faces from the huge amount of blood. During this Steve also learned some German: "viel Blut" means "a lot of blood". Ha,ha, this was scary again. Interestingly Steve didn't want to cover our faces with the green medical plane which is used during surgeries to protect the area around from blood, because he wanted to see our faces to go sure the new shape of our ears and the direction of the point will fit to our faces.
There were also two "premieres" for Steve: first of all Sads cartilage. Steve said, he never had to deal with such a thick cartilage.... usually they are just one millimeter thick, but Sad's were about three millimeter. The second premier was the couple-theme: Steve said, that he never did a couple-ear-pointing, so he's really looking forward for awesome pics of our healed ears (like we are).

All we can say to the procedure: you will survive it. Some of the sounds (like cutting your flesh and cartilage) needs getting used to and the stitching part is the worst and hardest. Especially the first stitch which tighten your cartilage is painful, but a real elf knows no pain ;) All in all the stitching feels like you're getting pierced a lot of times 'cause that's, what the needle does. After the first ear, Niha-Cétas circulation was a bit weak, but dextrose helps surviving nearly everything ;) The whole procedure took approximately one hour per person, so that's a half hour per ear. The first minutes our ears hurt a lot. They felt hot, pulsating and they stinged. Espceially the place behind the ears hurt most, although nothing happened with this spot. It felt like you wear really tight sunglasses for a lot of hours. Also the transections hurt. For some minutes we were sure, that this is just some kind of foretaste on the pain which will stay for the next days. Strange to say this pain was gone after circa thirty minutes.

some pics of our freshly pointed and cleaned ears immediately after the procedure:

Unforunately Steve had a lot more customers to treat, so there was just time for a short talk. He was really impressed by our promotion pics and is looking forward to our new ones for his gallery. As the adrenalin rush was gone we felt a bit tired. Fortunately a friend accompanied us to Wesel so he drove us back home and we were able to sleep a lot in the car.
