I know I'm gonna get **** for this, but honestly, I think this goes to show more that some people are so entrapped in their own narrow-minded view of how the world is supposed to be that they immediately hate anything different. I mean, I'm a guy, and I have my ears pierced, and a lot of my friends have tapers/plugs. I've considered getting my ears stretched a little, but I wouldn't go any larger than like size 8 (They go on a decreasing size scale), but I digress. In my opinion, gauging doesn't look bad, and I think its just one of those things that my generation has done to distinguish itself stylistically from other generations. Its a choice whether or not you want to get them, and liking a certain style or trend, doesn't have any impact on your intelligence. Now, don't get me wrong here, I hate people who use gauging as a desperate cry for attention, and sadly, since they search for the attention, they usually find it, and they're the assholes who get publicized, but that's not how most people with gauged ears are. Most people just silently have their tapers and plugs because they like the style.

***** it has nothing to do with "not standing it" well at least I don't hate them but I would do this to some one just because I find it funny, heck I find them attractive but if I ever saw this done to somebody I would laugh, a lot.

If you'd put a lock through a total strangers gauge, and then run off, then you've just got a sick sense of humor....Like I could see doing it to a friend and then immediately giving them the key after you have a good laugh, but just running off and leaving the person to deal with a lock stuck in their ear? That's just cruel.
User avatar #153 to #152 - zombieblob (01/15/2014) [-]
I don't find it sick, but if you say it's sick oh well.
User avatar #155 to #153 - insanemanoo (01/15/2014) [-]
I think its cruel to use someone's own body against them.
User avatar #157 to #155 - zombieblob (01/15/2014) [-]
You're not hurting them, just bothering them. It's funny, yeah it may weigh a lot but they can just hold it with their hand till they get it removed.

You might be the biggest retard I have ever met.

Thank you, I try

In short, these stupid lock pranks are gonna lead to a lot of this.

Not even once

Have you ever heard of an earlobe ripping? Because this is the kind of **** that causes it. like if the person locks it shut and then drops it against the bottom of the person's gauge, the gauge might break and then it'll just rip right through the bottom of their earlobe.
User avatar #163 to #160 - zombieblob (01/15/2014) [-]
Doesn't happen all the time, it's just that practical jokes come with risks, say what you want I will still find this kind of joke funny when no one gets hurt. Plus if you get one now you know what the risks are.
User avatar #164 to #163 - insanemanoo (01/15/2014) [-]
The point is that there shouldn't be any risks to people who choose to stretch their ears, its not a practical joke if you just ripped someone's earlobe off and ran away, and this prank is attempted assault if it doesn't rip your earlobe, and assault if it does.
User avatar #170 to #164 - zombieblob (01/15/2014) [-]
It's a risk you, if you wanna get it it's fine but now there's a risk. It's like when you get robbed in a bad neighborhood at night, you knew very well what the risk was but still decided to go, sure it shouldn't happen but it does, you know the risks there are but still do it.
#216 to #170 - anon (01/15/2014) [-]
The only "risk" is people being ******* douchebags like you.
#208 to #170 - childofnephilim (01/15/2014) [-]
Yes, it is a risk, similar to getting in my car in the morning. There is a risk that someone, being entirely irresponsible, got slobbering drunk and is going to crash into me on my way to work.

It is a risk, similar to investing in my home, and having the bank reverse my equity because the bankers up top were making risky deals.

Do you know what all of these risks have in common? None of volitional characters conducting the "practical joke" are celebrated as having uproarious senses of humor.

I can't stand the big ass gauges. I want to get a really small size that looks pretty normal.
User avatar #145 to #142 - insanemanoo (01/15/2014) [-]
I don't mind what sizes other people have. Like I said in the original comment, I want to get up to 8's, and I've been told its a really solid size, but other people tell me that stretching is really addictive and that I'll end up going bigger.
User avatar #146 to #145 - OsamaBinLadenz (01/15/2014) [-]
I'm fine with whatever people wanna do. A friend of my friend has piercings and tattoos all over his body. The thing is he genuinely enjoys it and likes the style. I want a tattoo and some small gauges. I don't like being all flashy, but some people are flashy but don't intend to be because that's the style they like and it just happens to catch attention. I'm fine with that. People who pierce and tattoo to catch eyes, however, I could never see myself getting along with.
User avatar #154 to #146 - insanemanoo (01/15/2014) [-]
Exactly man, piercings that you like and tattoos with meaning are great, and I've got plenty of tattoos that reflect my love of music and other things. Some may say I've gone a bit overboard (I got my first one like 7 months ago and already have 6 of them), but I like them, and got them for the sentimental reasons, not for attention.
User avatar #156 to #154 - OsamaBinLadenz (01/15/2014) [-]
Yeah. Agreed completely. I can't see why you would make such a big change to your body if it had no meaning to you. You're changing a part of yourself by doing this. It better mean something.
User avatar #158 to #156 - insanemanoo (01/15/2014) [-]
My thoughts exactly. You're a good person, and I wish you much luck and happiness with any gauging and/or tattoos that are in your future.
User avatar #159 to #158 - OsamaBinLadenz (01/15/2014) [-]
Same back at you, man!

Totally agree with you on this one.

I myself have 3/4 lobes, and the only reason that I decided to start stretching, is because A) To me, it's a cool style. B) There is such a rich history behind it, even if said history isn't applicable to me. C) I'd had too many reactions to earrings. For example, my body would eat the finish off of the posts within a day or two (cheap or not) and I'd end up with very irritated lobes. Also, my lobes are thick so the posts were often too short and 'dangly' earrings were just not me. Because of the wide array of materials used for tunnels and plugs, I now have no problem whatsoever.


Not everyone is some hipster attention whore for having stretched lobes.

At the same time- if you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen. I refuse to get nipple rings because I'm afraid someone's gonna rip 'em out. **** happens- you're not gonna get rid of all the bullies in the world overnight, so don't give them anything to bully you with.
User avatar #143 to #134 - insanemanoo (01/15/2014) [-]
I can see where you're coming from, but this isn't some innocent teasing or even bullying, this is blatant assault.....I'd honestly try to find the guy who put th elock in and press charges

It's not people like you, who are modest about it and do it because they ACTUALLY do like it instead of attention grabbing that we make fun of. It's the absolute DUMB ASSES like the one above in the content that make theirs so big they can fit their hands in it. It looks retarded and honestly disgusting.

Well, once you start stretching, and you get to about a 4 or a 2, your ears will stretch indefinitely, so people are forced to either size up, wear nothing in them and deal with having the ugly skin flaps until they close up, or get them sewn up and start from scratch again....So sometimes, having huge gauges isn't even directly the person's choice; they're just making the best of a bad situation. I've met people who are up to half-inches who wanted to stop at like 4's, but their ears didn't stop stretching.
User avatar #140 to #139 - gggman (01/15/2014) [-]
Sounds like they messed up somewhere....
User avatar #144 to #140 - insanemanoo (01/15/2014) [-]
I don't know. All I know is one of my best friends had to size up from 4's to 2's because the 4's were falling out of her lobes even though she wasn't even trying to stretch any more, and now she's at a half-inch.
User avatar #135 to #133 - gggman (01/15/2014) [-]
And I'm not saying you're a dumb ass cause you make it that big (but i still think its gross, cause that's just me) I'm saying you're a dumb ass if you do things like the kid in the picture did.
