    Can I just say that I love gauges?

    I used to have them. Got up to about a size 4 then had to take them out. I just recently (two days ago) restarted my addiction after three months. No gauges or earrings. Can you imagine how much it hurt to stick a 14 through a hole that is almost completely closed?! Ouch! I want...

    Stretched Since 10/3/13!

    I'm new to this game but I have had a lot of friends and peers with bod mods since I was a wee tyke. I always said that I'd get'em one day, but never did. Finally did it yesterday afternoon and it feels and looks awesome. I'm only a size 14, but I plan to go anywhere from 4s-2s...

    I Have Gauges

    My lobes are stretched to 1 inch. I love them. Employers don't... But, honestly, I don't care. I will be self employed when I'm done with college, just watch. (Plus, I think they look pretty rad on me.) ;) And honestly, I've never gotten a negative review. Sure, my grandma wasn...

    Did I mention that women in gauges are

    completely, undeniable sexy as ****? Yep, they make me drool! Finally hit a 4g, btw! It's the strangest thing! When I was at a 6 for like 2 days, my ears stretched by themselves and my 6g tunnels kept falling out. I stretch'em to a 4g and they stop doing that. What the hell...

    I'm sure a lot of people have the same issues

    but I'm really having trouble moving up sizes without a really huge amount of pain. I'm trying to move up from 10 to 8g and it's taking a while. I've had 10s in for about a month and a half. I've tried warm water during a shower, but it still hurts too much. Any tips?

    I'm just now starting at a 14g it didn't hurt

    like I expected which makes me wonder if I should've just went for a 12G but I'm patient and will wait a month until my next size up.. It's a little tempting to try a 12G because my ears literately feel like I put in regular earrings... What do you guys think?

    Everyone always asks me "Why do you gauge your ears?" or they say "You'd be so pretty without those giant 'holes' in your ears and holes in your face" I remember being in 9th grade, There were these 2 guys who had the biggest gauges i've ever seen, Biggest in the school. I...

    Not To Be Bitchy,

    First of all, you do not have gauges. Gauges are a type of measurement, as in the U.K. they use mm. So basicly when you say to someone " I like your gauges" you are saying " I like you milimeters" for instance, when you tell some one you like their shirt, you say " I like your...

    Both of my ears are gauged.

    Not sure the size, but it's around 1.5". I can fit a few cigarettes and a lighter in there, that's all I know!
