I'd graft tufts of hair on the tops of my ears. It'd complete the look.

I beg of somebody to necro this thread with a followup picture in 40 years.

Style is not a word I would use in this context.

He appears to be more of a genetic mistake ... the fully faux version.

I wonder if his children will also feel obliged to get the implanted horns?

If those horns are the product of cosmetic surgery one has to question the ethics of the surgeon.

the booking form says he's 5'10" and 125 lbs i'm curious, how would one get the grooves in the side of his head like that?

They're not really any less 'ethical' than any other form of plastic surgery.

Well, I don't entirely agree with that. Take a burns victim for example or patient who has facial disfigurement/deformity. A surgeon who'll collaborate with a patient to make him more grotesque is questionable to my mind. I'll accept that my view may be old fashioned but...

Ok, I probably should've said 'cosmetic' surgery, there are plenty of times when plastic surgery is necessary but when it's purely cosmetic (face-lifts, breast implants, etc) it's just as ethically questionable as getting horns implanted.

I'm not a surgeon, but from a general medical ethics point of view, if the person has full capacity, then I'd suggest this sort of extreme body modification may not be a particularly unethical thing to be involved in. To use a tailoring analogy, if you felt somebody would be better off with a clean look, but they insisted on lots of drape, if you were sure they absolutely understood what they were asking for, you might still proceed. Now, if the person had impaired capacity, or serious psychological issues driving his desire to get this type of surgery, and the surgeon proceeded anyway, absolutely I would consider that unethical. I leave it to you/others to suggest a tailoring analogy here, perhaps using one of our esteemed members and their bespoke tailors... Of course, it can be argued whether it's possible to want this kind of modification without having those serious psychological issues, but there is a theoretical possible subset that might fit those criteria. I suppose, in some respects, in might be akin to surgery for body dysmorphia. Not something I approve of personally, and it is a highly controversial field, but there are those who hold that it is acceptable/ethical to perform.
