Against my begging plea’s my oldest daughter (17) gauged her ears too, at 1/2” diameter. She loves it as much or more as I find it morbid. I tease her often how it takes attention away from her pretty face as well as ask to hang my key chain from them at random. I was so resistant to this new age trend it was surprising to find inspiration and a flood of creativity when she asked me to make her some custom ear gauges. It wasn’t until the 1st few piece were cast I remembered my own “dislike” for the trend. I still get the creeps over it, but find an odd comfort in what I learned about over coming my personal opinions.
