There is something you might not know about me. I might have mentioned it here before, but I'm not sure so I'm going to assume most of you don't know. Except for Abigail.
I have stretched ears. Gauged. Whatever you want to call them. And they are actually pretty big. (Size 00.. I would say about the size of a dime.) Especially most people can look at me and not even realize my ears are stretched.
(My last employer didn't know I had gauges until about a year after I started working there.) Seriously.
I don't know if I could do it again if I had a do-over. But now that I've had them for nearly five or six years and the pain I went through to get them (hurt worse than my tattoo.. no joke.) I don't want to get rid of them.
The thing is, I want new plugs. I've had this set for most of the time I've been at this size, and I love them. They don't fall out while I'm sleeping. And they look like regular earrings to most people. Except once I had an interview and the interviewer had gauges so she realized.. I would've had to take them out to work there, or wear fleshies. Kinda glad I didn't get the job after all.
So I've been browsing Etsy today looking for some ideas.. What do you guys think?
I think these would be seen as plugs right away, but they are adorable. (Did I really just say an octopus is adorable?! It is aqua, afterall.)
My brother is in the navy, so these make perfect sense.
I'm not really a yellow person, but I love these.
And we all know I love zombies, yes? Zombie cameo? Count me in!
So you can see my dilemma. Too many choices. And I haven't gone through all 119 pages of my search results on Etsy. Do you know other handmade shops that make gauges! Let me know!
