Gages have many designs, colors, and sizes. Gages can be solid, have a hole in the center, pointed at the end, spiral shaped, hooked, tube shaped, etc. I wouldn't suggest gages for the average teen, but if you are a punk rocker, stoner, in a band, or you just like them, get some. Start out small and increase the gage size to avoid swollen ears. Get creative with the colors and designs!
