EARMAGEDDON 2012 News Update:
The start date is set for March 1st, which is when INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH will begin accepting applications from professional body piercers all over the world to enter the second coming of their Ear Project Challenge, EARMAGEDDON 2012. The last day that entries will be taken will be July 31st. We know that some of you out there have already got some projects in the works, and we can’t wait to see what you guys come up with this year! We will post the rules here on the Contests page a couple of days before then. There will be some changes to some things from the previous year, but nothing too major.

There will be an addition of an “old school” category… for entrants who use basic jewelry that was available in the 90’s. There have been some pretty cool basic jewelry ear projects than have been executed over the years, by some pretty talented earchitects. We wanted to pay homage to where it all came from by giving the genre its own prizes. All who qualify to enter the “old school” category will also be entered into the main category.

      Erik Dakota was a body piercer and a visionary at a time when the modern body piercing scene was just taking shape and gaining steam in the early 1990’s. Under the tutalidge of Fakir Musafar , Erik pushed the envelope of what was already being done in the body piercing world a little further. He experimented with and perfected placement of piercings in the ear that had not yet been done before. He allowed the first receipients of some of these new experimental piercings to name them; the “rook” and the “daith” piercings being two of those piercings that are still done today… every day. He also forged new paths by figuring out the logistics of having a single piece of jewelry go through 2 or more piercings at once. This led to the wild ear masterpieces that he created , that led him to coin the term for them… the “Industrial Ear Project”. This piercing, of course, has spawned the popularity and the name of the ever-popular “Industrial” piercing that is done quite often nowadays.
