It's called a supernumerary nipples abd are actually fairly common, never heard of one on the knee though.

Give me some time and I'll see if I can find it but in a book about human deformities I remember seeing an old woodcut of a woman nursing one child normally while a toddler nursed on a fully developed breast growing out of the side of her leg. Not I'll admit that seems almost impossible and was probably either falsified or highly exagerated, but just saying its not an unheard of deformity.

BTW You're link is broken, you've got an extra "HTTP" in it.

Joe, you are absolutely correct that this sort of thing happens all the time.
BUT...

I seriously do not know of any deformatiy occuring after a skin graft. That's how this guy got his "nipple"-- he was burnt and they used skin grafts from his chest to fix his leg and then all of a sudden a nipple grew?? Nope, not buying it...

The deformity is real as you speak of it, but as this person is speaking of it happening-- not buying it..

It's actually behind and above the knee, on his upper thigh. I didn't read the text before looking at the pictures, and assuming it was on his knee makes for an odd viewing experience.

Piercing it, though? Seems more suspetible to getting caught on something than the chest variety.

ETA: Slow typer today.

I was listening to Lex and Terry when this guy called in... They gave him crap about it and how he was lying and hung up on him.. he came to the station and showed them and that's how those pictures were taken.. They issued an apology next day and called the guy back on the radio

Well, I have two extra nipples, but they're on my chest, very small, and about 3 inches below my regular nipples...
