    ...is brought to the side of my head by Schick Slim Twin cartridge on a Gillette Atra handle!

    First time I have not only been bit, but had a chunk of flesh removed, by any cartridge razor. It's my Red Badge of Courage. I shall wear it proudly. :D

    Looks like someone shot your earlobe too. The bullet is still lodged in it. :D

    Wow.

    This is the reason I will not do the back of my neck with a straight razor.

    Maybe you should use the Turtle Wax as your pre-shave instead of your post-.

    I can't even imagine how it happened. I didn't change or do anything differently than I have always done for 30 years with a cartridge on my head.... Just somehow, the blades dug in and didn't let go as I kept pulling it across my head. There was that split nanosecond when I said a few cuss words but my hand also would not stop moving. :shocked002::shocked003::rofl:

    Looks like the razor bounced for some reason. Red Badge of Courage. :bounce015:

    Ear tunnel looks good. I'm 66 years old and thinking of doing it myself just for the hell of it. :signs136:

    I had always wanted tunnels myself, but not huge 5 inch holes in my earlobes... Wanted them somewhat small and "classy". So almost 3 years ago, at 45, I finally started the slow process of taper stretching the regular ear ring size holes I already had. Took me right at 6 months to get to the 0 gauge (8 mm) I wanted.

    Wow! I misunderstood what a tunnel is until after I Googled it. I'm thinking more like standard posts.

    Jody, your ear tunnels fly under the radar compared to @richgem. I know, I know...all the flamboyance these days resides north of the Mason-Dixon. :D
