What does it mean to have gauged ears? I tried to search for it but I could not get anything. The pictures I searched for were something I could not believe. I had asked my dad and he said that the tribal people normally have gauged ears. Why someone would have gauged ears and, is it what I saw in the pictures? Where the earring hole is massive and the stick items the size of carrom board pieces, maybe bigger. I would like to link me to some sites where I can see how much of this is actually true and what it means to have gauged ears? What is the significance of this?
