    Guten tag fellow grapplers,

    I have relatively large ear piercings (3/4 inch lobes) and i was wondering if anyone else has had a problem with this? I have been grappling for about 7 months now and last sunday almost got a finger stuck in my ear while defending the RNC. Gladly it didn't come to fruition because that would not have been a good thing. Just wondering if there has been any simliar experiences?

    Thanks guys,

    Treeoflife85

    damn, forgot to specify some things. I do take my jewelry out when i roll, and my lobes do shrink down a bit, but they still have all the elasticity to stretch back to 3/4's. Left out about half of what my orginal post should have been, heh.

    How do you get guys to roll with you with those dangling punctured ear lobes? (j/k, but just a little bit)

    I'd go for the ear guards myself rather than get my lugs ripped off

    Use a wrestling headgear and save yourself the hassle of getting your ear lobe ripped in half.

    Same reason people get tribal tattoos, it's something found in other cultures that the West has adopted despite it looking odd out of cultural context. I only wish plate lips and rings around necks to extend them caught on more so we could see who really is extreme.

    I'd advise getting Brutes or CK Tornados if you are going to invest in earguards.

    I had 8 gauge, started grappling HARDCORE, took them out and never put them back in,
    holes are sealed and I'm glad they are.

    also took out my belly ring too.
    that healed up too.

    my lip used to be the size of the OP's earlobes... it's not entirely unheard of... i've seen westerners with far more "extreme" modifications

    i have never heard of a guy with a belly ring...i hadnt heard of a guy with nipples pierced either then two of my friends got it...personally i think getting anything pierced is maaaad gay, but thats just me...but especially your belly button or nipple, keep that for the ladies

    I haven't had any problems with my lobes... I've got 0 and 00 gauge piercings on both sides... I take them out for grappling. I've had girlfriends that were able to poke a finger through them, but stubby grappler fingers... not a chance.

    If you are a guy, Shoot me before I shoot myself. Why would you pierce your belly button?
    Was it pink and sparkly?

    If you're a girl then that's fine.

    head gear is a good choice, but if you are graplling you want to go down a few guages.
