this the only gauge i keep
thats a shitty front grip, unless it folds forward like a pistol grip...haha just sayin.
at 6 or 8 it is most likely going to shrink back.
Im planning to gauge my ears, but i didnt want to read through all the pages of the thread. the lowest i think ill go will be 6 or 8. If i decide to take them out, will they go back to normal?
and thats the bottom line
thanks a lot.
so right now im at 16g, im going to go buy the 14 sometime this week, what do you guys recommend that i should get if i stretching my ears? Right now im just using this:
But i understand that for these, the biggest they'll go will probably be a 14g or 12g...
i plan on getting something like this when i hit a 6g, but how would i put it on. From what i understand, after reading all the pages of this thread, trying to shove it in will be a bad idea...
thanks a lot for the help

get something like vitamin e oil, jojoba oil or emu oil and you can use it as lube/something to massage your ears with after you stretch to make it heal better and quicker. when you're going to use it as lube just dip the taper in 1/3rd of the length of the taper and then stretch.

But for new piercings keep it to steel since theyre not pourous and can't collect bacteria etc. I had my steel 12g ring/barbell things in for like 3 weeks and the 10g i have are acryllic i think and it was fine.
