Cosmetic Surgeons Ready to Provide Patients With Elf Ears, Vampire Face-Lifts
Apr 11, 2011 – 8:03 AM
Nose jobs and tummy tucks are yesterday's news.
The cutting edge in cosmetic surgery is "elf ears" -- a makeover that will leave you looking like Mr. Spock from "Star Trek" or a hobbit. Another procedure uses blood to smooth out wrinkles. Get ready for the "vampire face-lift." Just how far would you go to look like a character from "The Lord of the Rings"? Well, some fantasy film fanatics are heading to the Tempe, Ariz., office of Steve Haworth, who holds the Guinness World Record as "most advanced body modification artist."
"There's a lot of people out there who have an inner vision of themselves, and they want to express that to the world around them," Haworth told ABC News. "I'm very happy to be an artist that can provide that kind of work."Basically, what Haworth does at the behest of his elfin-ear-desiring clientele is slice the top of the cartilage and sew the ends of it into a point -- at a cost of $600 and about 20 minutes of time.Pointy ears first beamed into America's consciousness in the 1960s with Mr. Spock on "Star Trek." And they've only grown more popular thanks to leading roles in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and all-time box-office champ "Avatar." Read rest see pics here:

Well if you want to look like a cryptid humanoid I suppose.........personally I think it is just weird.
