To learn more about stretching and body modification including stretching or "gauging", get the dvd entitled "Modify". I have it ordered from Tribaletic.com. They have a trailor for it which includes "Bear". A piercer from Texas whose ear lobes have been stretched to 5 1/2 inches! Mine are at 1 1/4 inch and just be careful when you stretch. EVERYONES BODY IS DIFFRENT! Just do things when you feel they can be done, take your time and never NEVER force anything. Good Luck!

african tribes also used them, because when slaves were being taken they "mutilated" the lip and ears so it would make them ugly and the slave traders would not want to take them>< i have it done up to a 0.ga
