Tape gauging your ears.

my ears are gauge 8, and I recently just started tape gauging.

tape gauging=a thin layer of non-adhesive Teflon tape, which is inert and safe for piercing use, is wrapped around the current earring.

has anyone else done this? are there any side effects or anything I should know?



Have an opinion?

  • Could someone please explain to me why you would want to gauge your ears? Is it cool to have a hole in your ear big enough to see through? Or better yet when your 80 with a hole in your ear..I think that is just about has stupid has getting a tattoo on you face...GROSS

    • I didn't ask if you thought it looked nice or not thank you very much,

      i think gauged ears look f*cking sweet & that's all that matters

  • I used to gage my ears. I got to a 2. I took them out about 3 years ago. Here are my reasons why:

    1. They smell! Eww I couldn't stand the smell.

    2. They don't look that great.

    3. If you go to a 0 they won't go back right.

    4. All the jewelry and tapers can get expensive.
