One thought on “what does stretching your ears mean?”

  1. It means the progressive enlargement of the pierced earlobe, such that it can accommodate larger and larger gauge jewelry. It is an ancient practice in many cultures, and was adopted by neo-tribal groups in the West (i.e. America and Europe) in the past 10 years or so. Unfortunately, it has very recently become very trendy in some circles. It is certainly not something to do for a trend as it is a permanent body modification.
