start at 8's if you havnt pierced your ears yet. i got mine pierced at santa cruz at a really good shop ..they told me wait three months before stretching but i think that depends on the person

after the 3 months i went down sizes every 2 weeks
true. how much do you have to take care of them? Like i guess i would be able to do it but im really lazy. i dont want my ear getting infected or some shit. Happened to 2 of my friends

i recommend just going to a good sterile shop..i didnt get infected and the piercings were as closely symmetrical as humanly possible. i cleaned them by using hot water and sea salt and let each ear rest in those for 10 min or so for 2-3 times a day.

avoid piercing guns..they are incredibly dirty due to the fact that they dont replace the needle after each use..

hope that helps

its not really washing, you just put like a half tablespoon of sea salt in 1 cup (measured) and dunk your ears in for 10-15 min..sound eccentric but i never got an infection. Also, if it gets too dry put less salt.

and yea im at zero's now and i love how they look, i kinda want to go to 7/16 but well see. Jacob when you put your islets in did you do the same thing with the electric tape then fit them in or did you pop them in?

ill post a close up of how they look later on

I think gauges look dope, but all this talk of "ear cheese" and stretching out your ears super big makes my stomach turn.

Alright; so fill me in real quick. I have never had my ears pierced and I have been thinking about gauging them for the past few years.

So when I first get it piereced what size gauge would I need? And then I should give it a few months just to heal before I strech it further, right?

Start out with a 8mm, anything above that might cause your ear to tear in a bad shape which might leave you with discomfort (and also might not let you wear certain earrings.)


Don't you think 8mm is big for the initial pierce or do you mean 8g

^that blows. I want to get gauges sooo bad. Moms is on some if i get them she wont pay for my college though. Should i just get them when i turn 18? Im gonna be living on campus and she will hardly see me. Or should i just let her pie me and not get them

I hate when people call them gauges. They're plugs people. Gauge is the measurement. I have 0s though. Started from a standard piercing and used tapers/putting in bigger plugs one by one then I said fuck it and slide an ink pen through my ear.

Awesomenesscool. lol
A cute girl w/gauges &)


anyways though....this may be a dumb question but I got real small ears so will that make it harder to get gauges? Like am i in more of a risk of a blowout then normal?

danielle if you continue sizing down it will look sick. Saw a asian chick with like 3/4's and she looked bangin for sure

anyways i need to decide on my next pair and im torn between two, so if anyone has an opinion or a review on one of these pairs let me know

these are both in 00's. or if u have a little free time and can think of a better alternative at that size holla






only thing about these is i like and dislike the fact that i would need to put o rings on. looks like this



these are where im at right now.. 0's screw on islets
