The types of ear gauges

Here are the various types of ear gauges that are available:

The earplugs: this requires O-rings which often is bone thickness throughout the plug which can easily be put into the ear stretch.

The pros:

  • The insertion of these is very easy in the newly stretched ears.
  • The O-ring that is surrounded makes the stretch look bigger than it is



The single flared earplug with O-ring: these have one of its end that is flared which means it is larger than the size of the plug.

The pros:

  • Very easy to insert
  • You have only one O-ring which means that you don’t have to worry to take care of two of those rings.


The double flared saddle earplugs: it consists of a little bit of a larger lip on the back and front of the plug compared to the middle portion.

The pros:

  • No O-rings are needed
  • These are mostly made from organic materials like wood, buffalo horn and bone which is considered good for the health of your stretched ear.


Screw fit earplugs: these are made of two pieces that screw together to form a plug.

The pros:

  • Enables an easy insertion since it is not flared.
  • They are lightly weighted since most of the plugs are hollow.


The types of materials that are being used in the ear gauges:

  • Titanium: it has been considered one of the best for ear stretching and fresh stretching. If some people have an allergy to steel they will prefer titanium.
  • Steel: it is a non-porous, easy to clean and a smooth material which is generally considered for fresh ear stretching.
  • Silicone: this is considered a great choice for piercings that are healed. They are very comfortable and also very pleasing to the eye.
