So ...
my friend is wanting to get his ears pierced and eventually gauge them...

He wants to know what size he should stop at if he decides to eventually take them out and have his ear lobe heal back to normal? he's not wanting to go real big.. he just wants them a little bigger.

Its different for everyone. If he wants them to go back, stop around 0 at the latest, and do it Very slowly. Scar tissue makes it much less likely to grow in fully.

around 2g for most people, stretch slowly if you want it to heal better.

I got mine pierced at 6g, its been 2 months and while the holes healed in a few days theres still a decent sized indent where the hole used to be.

Well If he doesn't want to go to big then he may want to only guage them
up to at least a 4. That way if he want's to take them out and let them heal back to normal they'll do so.

Check the dates before you post.

Well at least the only thing you fucked up this time was resurrecting a two month old post. Seriously leave that shit to God (whichever one you believe in) and Genies. Once again your school system has failed to teach you to pay attention to detail.

Okay so they are all wrong. You can go up to a 1/2 inch before your hole is no longer able to go back. It will take awhile but if you don't go past that you will be fine. I'm at 7/16 and my ears are just fine.
a 6 is barely a whole and you can go way past that.
