    sometimes what was appropriate in other cultures doesn't translate well.

    it does not. some African tribes stretched their ears to protect them in battle this should surly protect the mutilated from employment. a new reason for public assistance; I can't get a job because I am being discriminated because of my appearance. and sadly it will work.

    I have mine stretched to 5/8" and I love them. However I don't do it to 'express myself'. When it comes to stuff like that, I admire things for aesthetic reasons only-if I want to express myself I open my mouth and express myself. When you're a teen, you feel that what you wear is you expressing yourself,but when you get to be an adult, you just kind of more go by what you like & don't read as far into it or think, 'what does this say about me?'. For my stretched ears, all it says about me is that I simply have stretched ears.

    I don't mind small gauges. The big ones I find rather unappealing.

    They are self-expressive, just like any type of modification (piercings, scarification, tattoos, dye, make-up, etc.).

    No, they are not called gauges. They are stretched piercings. Gauge is a unit of measurement. You do not gauge, inch or mm your piercings. You stretch them. You can modify yourself however you please, but it would be wise to learn the correct terminology.
  • Farbiger T4yl0r-r4y 2013/01/28 02:13:16

    It can be called either one, since you're upping the gauge of your piercing. When you go to the piercing and tattoo shop and say you want to get your ears gauged- they know what you're talking about. You actually do gauge them since they come in different millimeters. I already know I can modify myself, but thanks for giving me your approval.

    They know what you're talking about, but it is still not the correct terminology. Every definition of gauge references a form of measurement. The process of enlarging the hole is called stretching. Gauge is the size of the jewelry.

    Potato, potatoe. They're talking about the same thing, and you can use either wording.

    It's not the same thing though. Gauge is a form of measurement, stretching is the process used to make the hole larger. You can use either wording, but only one is the correct terminology. What you're doing to trying to call a tomato a potato, when they are obviously different things.

    That's what I learned when I moved to the US and haven't ever heard different. After looking more into it, I see what you're saying and apologize for doubting you.

    stick to your guns language should mean something.

    your example suggests a different pronunciation or spelling and does not support your argument.

    ...You're about a month late. I've already realized that and have apologized and admitted I was wrong. -_-

    I am a piercer. We know what you're talking about, but those of us who don't correct you are either not educated on the matter or find your ignorance amusing.

    They're not especially artistic, so I'm not really sure what they're intended to express aside from "Moar attention please." If they mean more to the people who get them though, all the more power to them.

    We call them tunnels in Poland. And even though most of us hate it, some do it. I think it's just ruining your ear beyond repair. Though I must say, I think the strechers, like the one supposed to stretch your earlobe before putting in the tunnel, are nice. They give a bit of character. But I wouldn't wear them for the cost of having my earlobe ruined.

    They have surgeries that can repair your ear lobes.

    Maybe, but it would probably cost a lot.

    True. Also, depending on how big you get them, you can hide them with earrings that have posts or your hair. I have a friend who did that, so that's how I know.
