Can I hear your thoughts?

For my college marketing class, my group and I are focusing our marketing project on ear gauges/plugs. It'd be great if I could get your opinion on what you think of them. Thanks! :)


How old are you?
Do you like ear plugs (gauges)?
What type of people do you think get gauges?
Do you know anyone with them? Or do you have them?

What kind of ear plugs? Like ear plugs to keep out noise when you're trying to sleep?

How old are you? 33
Do you like ear plugs (gauges)? No
What type of people do you think get gauges? Ones that don't want real jobs
Do you know anyone with them? Or do you have them? Yes My Best friend
I will say I used to think they were ok if they were the smaller ones but what about when you get older and you have these HUGE gaping holes in your earlobes? I am no prude I have numerous tattoos ( LIke over 11 and 1/2 of my arm) but all can be covered since I work in the corporate world. But I do not understand the ear guage thing that is non reversable...

How old are you? 22.
Do you like ear plugs (gauges)? Nope.
What type of people do you think get gauges? People with odd taste. Why are they doing this wierd Mayan thing? Do they realise how far their ears will be stretched? Do they know how it will look when they are old? Do they mind that they probably won't be able to get a corporate or government job? I mean, fine if they don't want one, but if they do, they are really messing up their chances of getting one.
Do you know anyone with them? Or do you have them?
I've met a couple of people with them, but all my friends are heaving for the kinds of jobs that you can't get with visible crazy piercings, so neither they nor I have any.

Life.

Sorry, dramaqueen! I was in class. But, yes! Ear plugs as in the earrings/holes in the earlobes. I'm getting some great feedback on this, I appreciate it! Keep them coming! :)

Do you like ear plugs (gauges)? Meh. I'm rather indifferent to them - I wouldn't get them, but have nothing against people who have them.
What type of people do you think get gauges? Teenagers - many of whom aren't planning ahead and are just looking for something to do.
Do you know anyone with them? Or do you have them? Yup. I know several people who have them - they tend to have a heck of a time finding or retaining a job of any sort, let alone one that pays well(be it because of the gauges or other factors, I honestly can't say).

Take note that I'm a bit paranoid about things that could affect employment - no visable tattoos, visable piercings outside of a single piercing in each ear for females/a single piercing in one ear for males, don't post anything on social media that you wouldn't want your employer to see, etc.

It's funnier in Enochian.
