A brief history of piercing and lobe stretching

The piercing and stretching of the ears is a time honored tribal tradition practiced by many cultures across the globe for centuries.
Lobe stretching is practiced by many people, including Animists, Buddhists, and other Indigenous cultures all over the World. This cultural practice has spread around the planet, and the people who participate in it have regarded ear piercing and lobe stretching as ritual and as a rite of passage, a mark of knowledge and a method of beautification. In every continent on our earth there has been in the past or is currently an indigenous community of people who use the stretching and piercing of the ears as a respected form of adornment.
