Ear gauging is an art that seeks to extend the ear canal wider than a traditional ear canal. This technique is often called ear tunneling or ear stretching. Ear gauges create a new style of human earlobes. A tunnel or plug is jewelry that is commonly worn after the Ear gauging process. The jewelry industry continues to embrace the practice by creating safety standards. In addition, if you decide to measure your ears, you will find a wide selection of products. As a result, people can find products that help them create a new self-image.
· Normal Ear piercing Vs Ear gauging
A typical piercing consists of an 18-20 gauge needle to create a piercing that is large enough to penetrate standard earrings. However, the piercing is usually small enough not to be seen when one does not have jewelry. This size of piercing of ear gauges is usually quick and easy to treat for people who decide to leave the earrings in the future. On the other hand, a typical armpit creates an opening that is further widened to accommodate larger jewelry. Jewelers always measure ear gauges in the same numbers, from 00G to 20G, although it is not uncommon to find jewelers using gauges of foreign measurements. Due to the smaller size, the hole is wider, so size 10 is smaller than size 6, while size 4 is smaller than size 2. For larger sizes, calculations are usually performed with millimeters or a fraction of an inch. ·
· Jewelry for ear gauging
Jewelers use calipers such as micrometers and a measuring wheel to calculate the diameter of the puncture. A medical needle can also be used for piercings. The types of holes inserted in the measuring earlobes vary depending on the size of the expanded earlobes. Those who decide to stretch their ears to large sizes wear plugs on the rollers that completely fill the measuring hole. Someone chooses a tunnel – a hollow piece of jewelry that lines the piercing, while leaving a visible free space between the measured piercings. Thick earrings are especially popular, while in some cultures the insertion of multiple wire loops is common.

People who are interested in immediate results may opt for dermal punching, which acts as a punch that creates a straight hole. However, it is advisable to choose a slow method, increasing by 1 mm every 4 weeks. If you have a skin type that does not stretch easily, do not force it. Stretching the ears too fast can cause pain and cause less even stretching of the skin. In addition, applying too much pressure can cause the meat in the lobe to move outwards, causing an “exhalation” that tends to leave people with scars.
