Why do people gauge their ears?

I always wondered why. I've heard style. I've heard it's a pain thing. I wonder though. Is there is a specific reason for it at all?

  • Self expression... Why do you get tattoos or other piercings...usually its a way a person expressions there self in a more predominant way instead of putting on a different colored shirt. Some people judge too soon and wrongly about people with piercings and tattoos when they shouldn't.

    ..apparent even more often when its a woman.

    Hope this helps.
