I have 2 in my Left ear and one in the right. I don't wear them anymore, but the holes are still there. Last year I gauged one in the left and the one in the right ear. I got down to a 2 in the left, but couldn't get it in the right (it bleed...a lot) so I just went back and got size-4 plugs. Took those out around April. They started to smell.
I'm only here to remind Brad to take his protein pills daily.
