my ears are at 3/4
but i tend to jump back and fourth to make them healthier.

as to what people are saying about "point of no return"

it differs for some people, but don't stretch your ears if you can't live without them going back to "normal" one day.


oh and laughingiddykongx posted a fit showing his ears.

just start at 10... people that start at little sizes like 16 and go down 1 size by size because it hurts too much are pussys. I know this girl who went from 10 straight to 6 in 2 days and it didnt mess up her ears at all.

ware2cawp tapers. i could order some off of bodyartforms but shipping is either like 11 bucks for 1 week or something (wat) and 2 bucks for 2-3 weeks. as fucking if so; protips on where to look for tapers and such. or how to accurately use tape method.

honestly it's up to you. I started off at 18, then put 16 in overnight, then put 10s in the next day. from there i went to 8 and then 4. I suggest you let your ear heal after each stretch, or so I've been told to do, but yeah, my friend started with 10s, but he had a big earlobe to begin with.

when you size up it just stretches and hurts for a few weeks, then its cool?

So im going to wait like 4 weeks until i size up. Ive read a bunch of you guys saying to wait 2 weeks between stretching. So i should wait the first 4 weeks then after that just wait 2 between each?

Right now im at a 8g so when i decide to go to a 6g do i just stick the plug in the hole or do i need a taper?

and i should use steel when stretching right?

you should be fine just sticking them in there. just make sure they're plugs, and not flesh tunnels if you're using them to size up. i started using tapers when i stretched to 4g i think?

and yeah, steel tapers are real cheap on ebay.

might slice/tear if you're not careful.

planning on going from 20g to 14g or 12g and then after that doing the steps 10g, 8g etc until 4g.

need protips, 14g or 12g? i don't want to spend like a whole fuckload of time stretching just a tiny bit like 20g > 18g > 16g that's just silly.

Damn you kids are mad retarded skipping sizes and only waiting 2 weeks in between stretching. You should wait at least a month in between stretches and never skip. Practice some patience like stretched lobes were initially to show. The last thing u want is a rip or a blowout. If u want to size up that quick then just ur ears scalpeld(sp) or dermal punched.
