My parents wont let me gauge them and i think ill go with fake tapers, or plugs. Do they look real?
yes they do, i used to have fake gauges, and everyone thought they were real, but it really depends on how big they are..usually you should start out with small gauges then gradually get longer ones so it doesnt look that fake...i was able to fool people for a couple months(: haha til i told them all that it was fake...so for me it workedd...it might for you too!(:
I think the smaller they are, the harder it is to tell the difference. With the larger guages its easy to spot a fake one because the tissue of the earlobe is not stretched around the jewelry.
It looks real to people that dont know gauges. But to people that have had gauges it looks fake. I can tell when their fake, most of the screw on spikes don't have black rings.
