What have Tutankhamen, Blink-182'sTom DeLonge and Davey Havok from AFI got in common? Nope, Egypt's boy kind wasn't in a pop-punk band. Aside from a penchant for eyeliner, they all have stretched ear lobes! Though this form of piercing modification has only hit the mainstream in recent years, ear stretching jewellery has been worn by indigenous people the world over for centuries as a method of showing status, religious beliefs or tribal affiliation.
Stretching a piercing involves slowly increasing the size of the jewellery worn in a piercing, in order to enlarge the 'hole' to accommodate larger jewellery. The ear lobes are typically the most popular location for stretching, though the nose, lip and cheeks are also commonly stretched.
