Would you like to have pointed ears like a Vulcan or an elf? There are doctors and body modification artists who will do it for you. Doctors warn that it's essentially permanent, so be sure of your decision before going under the knife. There's a video at the link from ABC's morning show, which is labeled "Spock Ears for Kids", though they're no indication that children are getting the procedure.

These body-mod artists aren't necessarily tattoo artists either...so I wouldn't call this doctor a "random tattoo artist" as he has educated himself in his endeavor and makes his clients aware of all risk involved...tattooing is a seperate thing altogether. Some people choose to do piercings, others tattoo, others mod, some do all of the above.
Lots of uneducated assuming going on in the comment section here...if it's not for you, it doesn't mean it's wrong.
Yes but how is this different from say a nose job?
Personally I think that if you think a nose job is going to fix anything; you are on the wrong track.
But in the end we all care how we look; or else we would be wearing old dirty rags as clothes.
We didn't choose the body we end up with, so why not change it to something we like more?
