    Hey all,

    I know pics of yourself are rare on this website, but I have not seen any other bassists with gauged ears...

    Anybody else stretch their lobes? I'm currently at half an inch, debating to go further. All my other friends but one have stopped there, and he's at 3/4" :meh:

    So, lobe stretchers?

    Dude. If you get the Kaos Softwear skins for your ears at 00 you can hold a pen in it. It's pretty sweet.

    Was at 00, Took them out about three years ago and am now about about a 6. Too many issues with my motorcycle helmet to justify keeping them any larger.

    Nope. Just a pierced tongue and eyebrow. I used to have 4 piercings in my tongue all at once, but my tongue just weighed too much and it made it tough.

    What's the largest your lobe can be gauged without requiring surgery to close them up. Isn't it a 2?

    I heard it's a 00.

    The only downside to having gauges is they're kinda expensive and some of them have a habit of falling out.

    They look cool, as long as they don't ruin your lobes.

    Yeah gauges are pretty expensive but I work at Hot Topic so... I get mine for cheap :p

    I like the Kaos Softwear skins because they make your ears look bigger than normal plugs and they can't fall out.

    There are least three major picture threads plus various
    photoshop threads.

    Two are stickied in this forum alone. BUFF Guys do gigs
    and Show stupid old pictures, the more embarrasing the better.

    Also, the Chicks at Shows threads often has bassist pictures
    on the photoshop threads are in OT. They get bumped every
    once in a while.

    (No gauges here, sorry...) :)
