The need to decorate your body appeared in people in ancient times. Man has always strived for individuality and self-expression. Yes, and in the old days it was extremely important, otherwise how to demonstrate to the enemy your fighting spirit and strength even before entering the fray? Of course, how to decorate your face as scarily as possible, suddenly the enemy retreats without a fight. And how to attract the attention of the most powerful man in the tribe? Again, you need to decorate your body. And to make rain or protect yourself from evil spirits? You are absolutely right - to put a ritual drawing on the body.
The scarier the better
The troubled times of antiquity have sunk into oblivion: you can’t frighten enemies with your appearance, the inability to influence weather conditions with ritual drawings and mantras has long been proven by scientists, and you can’t lure a modern man with trinkets alone. But what is surprising is that with the same zeal we try to decorate ourselves, and sometimes just disfigure ourselves. Jewelry is getting more sophisticated and amazing.Why is this happening? And all because every year it is more and more difficult for a person to express his individuality, and for some it is simply impossible to stand out from the crowd otherwise. Not many are given the opportunity to express their "I" through talents and mental abilities, but getting a tattoo, piercing their nose, tongue, ear and inserting something into it - everyone can do it. And the bigger and scarier the better. This is our human nature.
One of the piercing options
And the "tunnel" in the ear has become one of the new fashion trends among young people. This tradition came to us about ten years ago from Western television screens, where musicians, representatives of certain subcultures stretched their earlobes by inserting rings into them. Our people really liked this idea. "Tunnel" in the ear (and not only) has become an integral attribute of informal youth. And now some people have holes in their ears with rings inserted into them - small, quite elegant, or frightening, through which you can see half the street. And if you want to become the owner of "unusual ears", then be sure to contact a specialist, it is not recommended to do this on your own, otherwise you can be left without hearing organs. Only in the salon will you be able to carry out this procedure more or less painlessly and without sad consequences.
How to make "tunnels" in the ears?
This type of piercing is carried out in several stages. And these very stages are the more, the wider it is necessary to make a hole in the lobe. At the first procedure, the ear is pierced (if beforeyou didn’t have a piercing) and an earring is inserted in the form of a rivet. After some time, as soon as the wound heals, a larger "tunnel" is inserted, with a hole of about 2-3 mm. And so, gradually stretching the earlobe, you insert rings of a larger diameter. This manipulation can take from several weeks to several months, it all depends on the ultimate goal. If there is a desire to have a "tunnel" in the ear more than two centimeters in diameter, then in this case an incision is made in the earlobe or a small hole is cut out (all this is done under anesthesia). But such a wound will take longer and be more painful to heal. Do not forget to treat fresh wounds with an alcohol solution so as not to get blood poisoning.
"Tunnel" in the ear - beautiful or not?
Do you like young people with this jewelry, are you a happy owner of such ears - it's all a matter of taste and worldview. Of course, it should be noted that everything is good in moderation. Sometimes you look at people who have the largest "tunnels" in their ears (photo above), and you involuntarily shudder. But this is a subjective opinion. Each person is an individual, and he decides what is beautiful for him and what is not.
