    Just small ones, not big enough to actually look through the hole, but like...
    I've ALWAYS liked the idea, even though I know most people dislike it. When I was 18, I was fat, had 0 social skills, and was retarded. I've put so much work into bettering myself since then, like dropping the weight, and becoming more "conventionally" acceptable, but I sort of feel like I should do something like this, just to show that I'm secure about myself as a person. I suppose the reason I never got them done was because I knew people looked down on it and thought it looked ugly, but I always liked the look. Other than gauges, I have a pretty mainstream view on what's attractive, so I hit the gym, try to get a good style going, etc.

    What do you guys think? Should I go for the gauges? It feels like a step back, in the sense that I'm going back to doing a social taboo - like I was back when I was living a life as a hermit and having a mohawk and being retarded - but I feel like it'll almost be empowering. These days everyone is about acceptance, and maybe, instead of conforming to EVERY beauty standard, I can at least have this one thing that I dig that I suppose makes me stand out a bit.

    Thoughts please. And also I'm drinking :cool:

    Don't. They cannot be hidden and you'll be unhireable in a corporate office.

    I don't think it's a good look bro. Just like tattoos, unless you go hard core, you may come across as a poseur.

    Newsflash: Guages don't show that you're secure -- quite the opposite.
    The fact that you need to prove something betrays insecurity.

    It's a pathetic cry for others to notice you.

    You don't need that shit.

    You do what you want but that's a nasty thing to do to your body. This is what you're left with when you tire of them. [​IMG]

    I'm not though. It's just like I can't help it that I dig a lot of really shitty punk music. It's just who I am...and who I am has always wanted ear gauges, but I've never done it because when I realized I had to turn my life around and that everything I had done up until the age of 21 or something had been wrong, I became incredibly insecure about doing ANYTHING out of the ordinary.
    yeah but getting them now would show that im confident to do what I feel like doing.

    I've got no hate for you, lil buddy.
    I'm a fan. This is tough love.

    Maybe a little more time concentrating on your future, and a little less focused on freaking-up your appearance might be a solid idea
