Everything you ever wanted to know about plugs and tunnels as well as quite a bit you didn't. A popular debate among ear stretching enthusiasts is how to actually refer to plugs or tunnels. Non-flared plug and tunnel earrings do not have a flare on either side of the plug or tunnel. Screw top plugs or tunnels are another great alternative if you don't want to deal with inserting flares. Single flared plugs and tunnels are a hybrid style which combines a non flared style and a flared saddle style. Double flared plugs have raised flares on both sides of the plug and are often referred to as saddle plugs due to their resemblance to the way a saddle flares out on both ends. The general approach with plugs and tunnels is to wear plugs when you're first starting out and then as your gauge size gets bigger transition into tunnels.

Aficionados will be quick to correct you when gauged plugs or tunnels are referred to as "gauges", but this terminology is often accepted without criticism. The use of o-rings is often needed in order to keep these types of plugs in place; otherwise, you run the risk of having them fall out if they're not tightly fitted within the ear. Screw top plugs are generally the same diameter throughout the length of the plug with the exception of the "top," which is a slightly larger diameter then the rest of the plug. As the name suggests, one end of the plug or tunnel is flared whereas the other end has no flare and will still insert similar to the standard non flared gauged plug.
The gauge size of double flared plugs is taken from the center, with the flares often being much larger (1mm or more at the larger sizes). The flare on an eyelet is generally not as large as a traditional saddle plug but there is no hard rule on the size of flare. Plugs are the suggested style to use at the smaller gauge sizes (2G or smaller) simply because a tunnel at the smaller gauge size isn't as dramatic looking with a tiny hole. The "off" amount and percentage simply signifies the calculated difference between the seller-provided original price for the item and the seller's current discounted price.

The advantage to wearing this style of gauged plugs is that they're much easier to insert than flared versions since you can just push the earring straight into your piercing. The top unscrews from the plug, which makes them just as easy to insert as non-flared plugs with the added advantage of not having to deal with o-rings that can fall off when wearing.
This style will additionally require the use of an o-ring for the non-flared end in order to keep the earring from falling out but will give the appearance of a flared saddle plug when worn with the flare facing outwards. Once inserted, you will not need to use o-rings to keep double flared plugs in your ears; however, they can be particularly difficult to insert at smaller gauge sizes since your stretched ears typically aren't as flexible as they will be at larger gauge sizes. As your gauge size gets bigger the tunnel opening becomes more noticeable and as a result tunnels become the more popular choice. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. For example, new shoes (with absolutely no signs of wear) that are no longer in their original box fall into this category. Be very careful when inserting them as they can damage your ear if you over stretch, and do not attempt to wear them when you're still healing from a recent stretch. Other than simply aesthetic preferences, plugs are less desired at larger sizes due to the increased weight. When inserting double flared plugs, you insert them like you would a button; put the plug at an angle to your hole and gently press towards the hole and slightly down. However, a gauge is also an instrument used to measure, so the argument could be made that "ear gauges" are an instrument that measures the size of your holes in your ears. Therefore asking the question, "How big are your gauges?" could technically be referring to the instrument of measurement you are wearing and not just refer to the measurement of size. While the phrase "stretching" makes more sense grammatically than "gauging," both terms are used in regular conversation, which is why you'll see us using both on our website. When looking for information or products related to ear stretching, individuals often search for plugs and tunnels as well as ear gauges; therefore, in the end, while we love to educate our customers on the history, proper methods and terms for ear stretching, we still want to be found.
