Every time I see someone with ear gauges I can't believe how stupid they look. Modifying your body is just something I don't understand the attraction to. Tattoos and piercings aren't my thing but at least I can see the point of them. You can take out all of your piercings and eventually the holes will close up. But ear gauging you're basically making a decision to make yourself look like an idiot for the rest of your life. Let alone the fact that whenever you come into contact with someone they see you as just as some weird hipster and most of the time no one looks past the factt hat you look like some sort of freak of nature.
