Largest size for first time earlobe piercing?

I want to start to gauge my ears, but they aren't pierced yet. And I know that you have to get your ears pierced before stretching and all that(obviously), but does anyone know the largest size you can start out with? I heard somewhere that it was 8G, or that it's 10G or 12G. Is anyone sure enough to help me out?

    You can get it pierced at up to a 4 gauge if you think you can handle the pain. Just make sure to go to a very experienced piercer!
