Son of Sam's Club
who wants to play ring toss?
I guess he’s trying to get on a National Geographic documentary. All he needs is to be topless with saggy boobs and and the look will be complete!
I’m so sick of seeing people with their earlobes stretched out. That is the nastiest fad on the planet
not my thing really but i do have to admire the amount of time and money put into something like that without a blowout..
He’ll gladly “lend an ear” to all the ladies.
This will look so good when he is 50 or 60 years old.
However, someone who does stupid, non-productive things like this might not even make it to the age of 40…
so gross. and this is the same moron who will wonder why they cant get a job
The holes in his ears are smaller than the holes in his head.
Those rings scream unemployed.
Wonder what that fool will look like when he’s 70
It can’t be for anything more than an attention seeking . Does it get you women? Money ? Fame? No ? Than what the hell good is it? Just makes you look like a dumbass. Take that shit out, get it sewn up , and do something with your life. Ya loser.
This person looks completely normal. Just because you personally don’t agree with ear stretching, it means it is bad, looks funny or ugly. It actually takes a long time to get to that size, so his dedication is quite admirable.

So you think it looks dumb now? Think what it’ll look like when he’s 60+ & decides to take them out, what then? will his grand kids want to walk down the street with him?
are they for his boyfriend to hang on to?
ZOOT! POWER AND CHAOS!
i wear ear guages my self (tiny compared to that) but his are just disgusting and do not look good
I was thinking the same thing as SALTIMBANCO. I wonder if he has a matching lip extender…
really, whatta douche.
@IMC Yes, it does look funny and ugly. I’m sure he did put a lot of effort into growing those things, but ugly still defines it.
This guy could prolly answer yes when someone asks him do youre ears hang low do they wobble to and fro can you tie them in a knot can you tie them in a bow do youre ears hang low?
Why hasn’t lip stretching caught on yet? It looks just as horrible.
I think his ears make a wonderful key chain. Just clamp onto your keys and you’re good to go.
Long ago ear stretching was a symbol of wealth and status, now it is a fad placed with a negative stereotype by society. It has still a, active role in the tribes today; and a historical figure was known for it…
In fact… Gautama Buddha, an aristocratic and wealthy prince, had long stretched ears. He wore heavy gold earrings or precious stones as a status symbol, and the weight stretched his ear lobes dramatically. When he finally renounced his wealth and discarded his jewelry, his ear lobes were permanently stretched. As a way of remembering Buddha’s act of personal self-sacrifice in walking away from his wealth, all succeeding images of Gautama Buddha show his stretched ear lobes sans jewellery
While I don’t agree with this, and find that it should be left to its original purpose, I do not believe this makes this guy an unemployed loser.
Mooga Booga!! Give that boy a spear and blowgun so he can dance around singing UNGA BUNGA!
@Fred if he makes it to 60 with these things what makes you think he’ll want to take them out at that point?
Stop projecting your insecurites
Wow, I can’t believe how judgemental everyone is. While there are some idiots who get body modifications for attention, some people are just into it and that’s okay. It might not be what you like, but it’s what they like. People have been stretching piercings since the beginning of time. I have my ears stretched to 7/16″ and 11 piercings but they’re mostly hidden because of my hair. I also have tattoos under my clothes. I dress very “normal” and most people don’t even know about my body modifications, but I love them and they’re a big part of my life. If the only reason people stretch their ears is for attention, why do I hide mine most of the time?
Also, the term is “stretched ears,” not “gauges.” “Gauge” is a unit of measurement just like inches or centimeters. Stretching is not “nasty” at all if it’s done slowly and carefully; the only time it gets gross is if people rush it or don’t clean their jewelry. Educate yourselves, guys. It’s the same as a woman wearing earrings but with a larger diameter.
people’s interests change when they get old. Alot of people regret tattoos they got when they were young. It’s a real possibility. And I’d much rather have an embarrassing tattoo then embarrassing skin flaps on my ears.
He’s with the Ubangi tribe, isn’t he?
That is one of the ugliest things I have ever seen. Not sure why people want their ears stretched out like that
If he put that dedication to stretch his ears into going to college and getting a job instead of stretching his ears he’d probably be driving a better car and out of his mom’s basement!
this isnt a fashion statement or attention seeking at all. its called body modification. its a type of art that appeals to some but not to others. if any of you honestly have that big of a problem with it, why not just ignore it? being rude and commenting on it wont do anything now, will it? be mature. also one more thing, its not gauging, its stretching.. lol.
i give him props for getting them that big without blowing out his lobes though.
Did it ever occur to anybody that maybe he did it just to make himself happy? That’s the biggest reason most people go through extreme body modifications. Something like ear-stretching can be a major personal journey, and commitment. Given the extreme size that he got his ears to, he probably did this for a far more significant purpose than “getting attention”.
The first thing that comes to mind when I see this guy is he better watch out if he gets into a brawl. Those earlobes will be the first thing the other person grabs and it ain’t gonna be pretty. The second thing that comes to mind is he’s pretty much rendered himself unemployable.

Even without his disgusting stretched ears, he still looks gross.
That’s clearly his mom’s car, and he’s not cool enough to look like he works in a tattoo shop, so he is.. unemployed I bet.
He can always get a job delivering dry cleaning.
ths is the most stupidest thing anyone ever came up with. and am really surprised at the few “supporters” unless of course they are the same loser type cause they will never have a decent job even in this “tolerant” society other than joining the circus. but no matter what the personal reasons for doing it are all i know is if it was my kid he wouldn’t have to worry about dedication, employment or what he will look like at 70 cause i’d rip them out myself.
Believe it or not, having stretched (not “gauged”) earlobes does not render you unemployable…and GAUGES belong in your car. JEWELRY belongs in your body.

I think that the whole “body modification” thing is rather silly. I simply cannot take such a person seriously and I know that I am not alone. I actually interviewed a guy a few weeks ago who had a pierced ear (along with a fauxhawk, which is fine when you are 12; not so fine when you are 22). I think that it was a combination of the piercing and the fact that his mother was in the interview with him led to my recommending against hiring him. If I had had a chance to talk to him I would have told him to lose the earring and his mother in future interviews he may have.
My blood pressure has been rising steadily as I read these comments. I can’t believe the disgusting bigotry & ignorance displayed here. You don’t have to LIKE the way he looks, but comments like “are they for his boyfriend to hang on to?” or comparing him to a tribesman(nice racism, BTW!) are just completely uncalled for & disgusting. Shame on all of you.
Lotta projection here too. Why do you all assume he did this to impress people? People do body mods because THEY like the way they look, not to attract attention. If “getting attention” is seriously the only reason you can think of why someone would do this, you’re woefully ignorant. Do you do everything you do just for the attention? No? Then why the hell would you just assume that about this person? Cause he looks different?
I have stretched ears too and guess what? I have a job too! I’ve been consistently employed since age 18, despite NOT looking like a librarian. Shocking, I know! I’m a skilled computer tech, and I work with people on a daily basis. I didn’t do it for anyone but MYSELF. Stretching takes a lot of time & dedication and while I personally wouldn’t go this big, I applaud him for reaching that size. It’s not easy. Nobody does this to themselves and then “wonders why they can’t get a job”. How stupid are you people??? This isn’t the 50s anymore, you don’t have to look like Pollyanna to avoid public shunning. People like this are usually employed in the tech field like I am, or else they’re self-employed or are piercers or tattoo artists.
Lastly- you think he’s gonna look bad when he’s 60? Man, I really can’t wait to see how stunningly gorgeous YOU all look when you hit 60. At least when he’s old he’ll still be interesting, unlike all of you sanctimonious twats. Eat a dick and shut the hell up.

@Phendraana Thanks for saying it so I didn’t have to. I’ve also got my lobes stretched., though no where near as large as this guy’s (mine are 5/8″). Yes I’ve got larger stretched lobes, yes I’ve got other piercings, and yes I’ve got a lot of tattoos. And guess what? I also have a good job working in home health care. And I certainly don’t look the way I do for anyone but me.
I say good job to this guy for getting his lobes as large as he did.
First off, they’re not called “Gauges” a gauge is a unit of measurement used to describe the size of a persons lobe. A normal earring is 18g, etc. The jewelry he is sporting, are called “Tunnels”
Also, those who think stretched lobes will look gross when the individual ages, you’re probably right. But elderly people without any body modification aren’t too attractive either.
Hey now, this dude is expressing himself, and you are a total moron if you think a means of measurement is a type of ear ring?? They are called PLUGS, and a gauge is something completely different, that’s like calling someone’s necklace a really nice “inch”, you moron.. The whole purpose of this website is to show the horror and atrocities that occur everyday at shitty suburban red neck earth murdering white trash walmarts. this dude is obviously not under that category, he’s obviously alternative and not a white trash inbred son of a bitch. respect things you don’t understand, you’ll embarrass yourself a lot less.
July 10th, 2012
I completely agree with Phendraana.
Mine are only up to 6G and 10G above that, but I did it for myself, I love it. I wouldn’t go as big as him either, that size squicks me a bit but to each their own because I have no say in what someone else wants to do with their body. I can observe it, be amused or weirded out by it, but I have no damn right to tell them they can’t look that way.
Also.. JFC at all the morons saying you’re ignorant for calling them gauges. You can call ‘em gauges if you damn well please. The practice has several names and “gauging” is one of the terms that’s become common. It may not have been accurate at one point, but it’s used enough that it may as well be taken as that. Saying it can’t makes you look like a know it all with your head up your arse. Like there aren’t worse and more annoying terms out there for various things.

That looks really good I have gauges nd I love them nd find them sexxy!
Everyone that is saying “i wonder what he’ll be thinking when he gets (insert old age here)”. You CAN get them sewn up. Mine were exactly 2 inches before I had them sewn. Why did I get them sewn? For my military entrance, that’s why. Before I chose to join the military, I was working for the State of Texas. Don’t be quick to judge by someone’s appearance.
I met a guy who had one of his streached ears tear apart at the bottom. It made his ear look like one of my dairy goats udders! Awfull to see and all I could think is THAT HURT!
Based on a study I did, there is a strong direct correlation between the gauge of someone’s lobes and how much of a douchebag they are.

It’s so he can handle 2 dudes at the same time, while still smoking a cigarette…….

I’m glad to read some of you who have the stretched lobes do have jobs – you have a point, in certain industries it wouldn’t matter. BUT for a young person to do this, they should be aware that they ARE limiting their career options. You’d never get a job in my industry even with small rings like those – just a polite rejection referring & no reason why. Ditto many unusual pearcings & visible tattoes. So caveat to young folks doing this body modification – just because it’s not legal to refuse to hire someone because of their appearance, doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen, all the time!
Excluding a slim few, you are all pathetic, small-minded commoners. I would venture to guess some of you are even “Christians” and you sit there thinking you have the right to judge this person. You have no idea who that person is or what he’s been through in his life. Shame on you, shame on all of you. That could be the deepest, kindest, most incredible person you ever meet and instead you childish bigots will probably make a disgusted face, look offended (as if you have any right to be offended at someone else’s modifications), whisper to your friends behind your hand and stare like the douches you are. Shame on you for discrediting this human being who has more courage than you.

I'd do him, don't judge.
he’s probably really hot…. and has a ton of tattoos (which is super sexy)… & way more respectful than anyone else on this site. and has his own kind of charisma and shyness (which is even more sexy) & which would drive any girl wild with curiosity. Also, I bet he takes good care of himself, is responsible, has a college degree, probably in something that shows how much he cares about people in need or in pain, can relate to just about anyone, and isn’t afraid to be his own person and STILL has incredible ambitions in life (probably more than anyone who judges other people they don’t know on this site just to make themselves feel better). I bet he’s selfless and cares about the people in his life, treats women the way they should be treated but many are too arrogant to notice, AND I bet he’s AMAZING in bed. Probably the best I would ever be with (& believe me I’ve experimented with the most “experienced” who just couldn’t pull their weight). Seriously, don’t judge a book by it’s cover because you could miss out on something great that could change the way you view people forever and open your mind to a different way to choose the RIGHT people to be apart of your life.
And when he has to have surgery to repair them, it will be us taxpayers that will foot the bill.

Unless he works at hot topic or a tattoo parlor i would say he is otherwise unemployed.
I bet u can smell the stench of those gages from across the parking lot! People with really wide gages have this putrid odor from the dead skin and stretching flesh.

If you got disfigured like this in an accident you’d be really, really angry!
August 30th, 2012
I am from VA, and have seen people working in hospitals with gages. I think they are hot, always have. Keep being closed minded and we all will continue to be neanderthals.
