Stretched Lobes are ear lobes stretched beyond the "normal" size of 18g. The incorrect term for the stretching process is "Gauging"; the jewelry are certain Gauges (For example, 2g is 1/4".) The origins of this process go back to tribes in Africa, Asia, and even some in early America.

Frequently asked questions about this are:
“Does it hurt?”
It really shouldn’t. If you stretch slowly and only one size at a time (waiting till it is healed) it shouldn’t be more than a slight discomfort for a few seconds.

“How big will I stretch before it won’t go back to normal?”
On average, 2g

“What comes after 00/000?”

“How big can I go?”
Depends on the size of your lobes, how thick, and how well you stretch. There are people currently here in America with lobes over 3 inches.

“Why do it?”
Personal choice, everyone’s different.
