im a bit of a coward so i only have my ears pierced but i have two holes..

in each ear i have an 18 gauge and then i stretched the first one to a 14 gauge,which is like the size of a tounge ring

but im planning on getting a monroe piercing which in case u dont know,is a simulated beauty mark on your upper lip(looks very cute)

so what gauges do you ppl have?

Well, I'm on 19 piercings at present (I'm one down as I managed to pull a tragus piercing out last week), I've only stretched the lobe of my right ear though. I've gone up to 10mm (which is about the size of a cigarette).

I will never understand the appeal of poking holes in one's self.

Believe me - I'm as surprised as you!! It's one of those odd things that just creeps up on you. biggrin.gif

I remember seeing Keith Flints (The Prodigy) tongue piercing when I was about 15 and going 'Ewwwww'. By the age of 19 I had my tongue pierced twice.

I have no explination for it. *shrugs*

16 gauge in my lip
18/20 in my ears, 3 holes in each ear.
Planning on a few more 16s in my ears. Not big on bigger holes.

You know that little bit of your ear which is.. umm - this could be hard to explain? blink.gif

About 1cm directly up from the lobe of your ear - there's a little bit of gristle that covers the hole INTO your ear? That's a tragus.

I'm pretty sure that it could be explained easier by someone else. *shrugs*

8mm left lobe,
Scaffold (1.6mm) (bridge) (left ear),
Tongue (1.6mm)
2x (1.6mm) anti-tragus industrial

you think its hard to tell people what a tragus is... try explaining an anti-tragus tongue.gif

retired : extended venoms (1.6), eyebrow (1.2),

had others but I generally don't have them too long.

A kid who I went to school with had a 2 guage in his earlobe. He was a drummer, so the obvious thing to do was to carry around the drumsticks IN the hole. Interesting times, those were happy.gif;

That is a tragus piercing, because it's too hard to explain. A friend of mine has a ring there. Tis pretty.

Myself, I have just my ears, but I've been considering getting my eyebrow done. Lord knows my mums would have a fit (she made me go to a "professional" in a specialized building just to get my ears done wink.gif but I like how it looks.

Yes, I used a magnet for a while to see how it would come out *hangs head in shame*

Another friend has enormous holes--I'm not sure what the gauge is, but he sticks his fingers in there every now and then and just plays with it. It's a bit unnatural to watch.

Anti-tragus is pretty cool looking (google for it)

Both nipples and lip are probably 1.2 or 1.4mm....can't really streach any of those tongue.gif

Of course you can stretch your lip piercing! My friend did it just a bit and then she had an unnaturally hard time drinking fluids as they could squirt out if so provoked. As for me, I now only have 6 holes, 3 in each ear. The bottom ones used to be gauged at 10 on my left and 6 on my right. I also had my lip at one point and my tounge as well as my belly button, all three are now closed, but someday I will do it again. I'm not having my tongue done again without a sufficent supply of orajel though, that was a quite painful experience... blink.gif

Good morning holey ones,

I have had a few piercings in the past but have only one now.
I have a 5mm thick ring 30mm diameter in my right nipple.
Had another in left nipple but took it out when I saw that I looked like a pink wardrobe.
Did them myself - bought the stuff from Wildcat at Brighton
It works better with thick rings if you go into the meat behind the nipple rather than the nipple itself.

Also, if you have a heavy ring they swing when you are doing the nude housework which is quite a nice sensation but the hole then migrates downwards until in a year or so you have to start with another hole further up.
At least that's my experience.

Oh there was something else.
I had a medical a few years ago and the ear/nose/throat guy told me I had a naturally pierced septum. It's an inherited thing. It is at least 7mm wide.
It would take an hydraulic jack to wear a ball closure ring in it though.

See, I have my ears done once, and this took me 16 years and an A in my GCSE maths to persuade my mother to let me have done. I want my ears done another 2 times, and once at the top, and I want my lip and tongue done, but I cannot for the life of me understand why you would want to stretch the holes to the size of golf balls... I mean... eurgh...
