I really liked it and, step by step, I’ve come to this!Do you have any difficulties eating or drinking?No, I don’t have any problems. I can only take small bites, though.&hellipand how about kissing?No, not really! My girlfriend also has a big “labret” [a lip piercing], but kissing is only a little bit harder.Tell us about the process of creating the tunnels in your cheeks.First, we made a little cut through my cheeks of around 10 mm and pushed the Teflon jewellery in. After three months of healing, we cut it to 18 mm that took about a month to heal. Then I stretched it again for 1 mm each month until I got to 22 mm, before cutting to 30 mm. Now I’m aiming to stretch to 40 mm [they currently measure 34 mm], which will be my limit. The man who carries out my mods did a medical apprenticeship in the military and has carried out extreme modifications for eight years. I trust him with my whole body. He is highly trained. He needs to be, as it’s a very complicated process to cut through the cheeks. It’s really dangerous to cut the salivary glands.How long does the pain tend to last during the healing process?The cuts are painful for about a week, but they don’t hurt after that.
