    Default Why Does Andy Mineo Wear....

    Why does Andy Mineo wear those two black earrings or whatever they are?

    Is that some fad or something?

    Those aren't gauges, unless they're the some of the smaller and strangest looking gauges ever, and if he never plans on actually gauging.

    I've seen others wearing similar ones. Differentiates from the typical "diamond" earrings folks wear, plus he probably doesn't like hoop earrings. If I ever saw a pair like that I'd probably pick some up for occasional usage. Not sure it's a huge fad or anything though, or else you'd recognize them.

    they're either plugs or tunnels as it appears that his ears are stretched, unless they're just regular earrings meant to look like plugs. the jewelry isn't called a "gauge", the gauge refers to what size your ear is stretched to e.g. mine are an eight gauge. it's not really a fad unless your definition of a fad is something that's been around for thousands of years.

    Better question would have been why do boys and grown men wear earrings?

    They aren't gauges...but they're meant to somewhat appear like they are. It's become a trendy earring for men to wear in NY.

    They're earrings. Why? Because he likes them? The same reason you wear things.
    Pick up that new Cram Session (7) featuring Sev Statik, Theory Hazit, Wonder Brown, Nomis, Antioch Alumni, myself and some new blood that you haven't heard yet. http://antiochalumni.bandcamp.com/releases

    I'd laugh and look at you funny for looking at me funny. Earrings are such a non issue it's laughable that they even get brought up.

    It's laughable to wonder why a man would wear what a woman typically wears? I'd ask the same question if he was wearing skirts or dresses.
