Ear Gauge Sizes?

Answer

Ear gauge sizes are used in reference to ear piercing and range from 16 gauge, which is the smallest at 1.2 millimeters and a double 0 gauge, which measures in at 10 millimeters. Ears can be gauged or made large by stretching the ear lobe. This is done through the use of weights, which are designed to stretch the ears over time. Ears should be gauged gradually or scar tissue will form quickly. Once a person has reached their desired gauge, they will fill the hole with a plug.
