When we say about large gauge, we say about the techniques of body stretching. Such
a method appeared many centuries ago and still exists in some tribes of South America
and Africa. In this cultures men as well as women stretch ears, lips or some other
parts of body to enormous sizes. In a modern world stretched piercing has recently
become a popular phenomenon, especially with teenagers and amateurs of certain
subcultures. The result of the stretching also depends on the elasticity of one's
skin, the period of stretching and its size, and even a person's age. However,
specialists state that a stretching more than 12mm will never heal to the end.
Most stretching techniques don't have any complications, such as scars or infections,
if done thoroughly and step by step. It means that one should wait at least a month
for each stretch to be healed. It also takes a longer period for particularly large
sizes. We offer a great collection of large gauges in various styles, materials
and sizes, especially for those who are keen on extreme and against stereotypes!
