  • I personally think they are ridiculous.

    However, my son who is thinking of going to med school may benefit from the trend... you KNOW that when these silly people mature out of it they will be scrambling to have an ear tuck.!!!  My son could profit BIG time off this silly trend.

  • I like the smallest gauges but i think people with gauges that i can put 4 fingers through are nasty looking. I want to gauge my ears at some point and i dont think nothing of parents who have em, Im pierced & tatted :)

  • lol id never go bigger then a 00 gauge (or one inch) after that your ears wont shrink back

    my boyfriend plans to stay at a 2 so he can just take out his gauges when he has to go to work since mine are small no one seems to care lol

  • My Grandson had his guaged.When he realized that he wasn't going to advance in the company he works for he had to have surgery to have them closed.

  • I like the small ones and have actually thought of getting mine done but got an industrial instead

  • Not attracted to them, but that is my opinion. I do not judge people though for what they do to their own body, I wouldn't do it to my ears.

  • Tikismom-how big where his? and it also depends on how stretchy the skin is to...mines not all that stretchy since my second piercing gave me a lot of scar tissue so my 6 gauge is probably as big as im gonna go

  • oooh it only hurts for an hour after you stick a 16 gauge in there XD no it only hurt for a few seconds then it was just warm and kinda swollen the next day it was absolutely fine though :)

  • They really freak me out. Not really sure why. But they just seriously freak me out. I actually avoid going to a certain restaurant when I see one waiter there.

    To each there own. But I don't like them.
