Only a handful of body modification artists are able to carry out the dangerous procedure.
Swedish body modification artist Chai Maibert performed the procedure at his studio in Stockholm.
He wrote on Instagram: “Fresh #conchremoval on @charlesvbentley who traveled around the world from Australia to have this procedure performed by me at @calmbodymodification.
“Truly humbled!,’ Mr Maibert wrote on his Instagram and Facebook.
“To get some facts straight note that this procedure doesn’t make you deaf.
“It might impair your ability to hear the direction of sound for the first week or two until your mind has adjusted to your new ears. Hearing from behind will in fact improve.
“Our ears doesn’t “catch” sound as it did eons of years ago when our ears were bigger hence why we have to create a bigger “ear” by cupping our hand around our ear to hear better.’”
But social media users weren’t impressed by the procedure.
