yeah i think they we're about 2 inches if i remember correctly. i splitted my lobes a few years so i cant wear any plugs but i do love my splitten lobes! too bad they shunk alot when i did split them, i was waiting for 2-3in long worms but not even near... wow dragonflies, how old are they? sounds pretty expensive!
Well if you try to wedge something like that in your ear at the wrong gauge, I can guarantee it will hurt like hell xD This sort of size takes some building up to, or "stretching", if you see what I mean. You wouldn't believe how much care you have to accord something as insignificant as your earlobe if you want a nice, sane result of stretching like this.
