feel like stretching my left ear to an 8 right now because i'm tired of waiting to stretch again. but i only have one 8g eyelet and i will probably look stupid for another week or two until i get the other eyelets. oh well.

get tapers/plugs does not hurt unless you go straight from a 16g to a 6g.
just stretch to the next size and leave it in for a couple weeks and you'll be fine.

you dont need to keep the tapers in for any amount of time. you can put the plugs in immediately after you put the tapers in..just push the taper through and when its at the end just push the plug in.

i tried going to a 6 twice this week. the left wasnt that bad but hte right hurt a lot so i just took them both out and im gonna wait another week or so.

^word. i just gave the 6s another shot and the right went in with minimal pain. like as much pain as the last 2 sizes gave me. from here i think im gonna just get those cheap tapers and some nice plugs.

HAHAHA, anywho, don't stretch too quickly. I went from a 16 to a 0 in a week or so. Stretching too quickly prevents the skin from healing completely when you're done with plugs. Now my ears look like assholes, no joke.

Apparently me even stretching to like an 8 is a 'BIG ASS HOLE IN MY EAR' according to my parents.
And will prevent me from getting any type of job.

They are so ignorant ahahahah.

is it bad to stretch with acrylic plugs for 10g-8g-6g? even tho i've given my ears time to heal between each stretch? (couple week increments)

idk why it would be bad for specifically those sizes. the reason why acrylic is bad is because it reacts with your skin and releases chemicals and whatnot into your bawdy if you wear it for too long.

alright cool. i think ill just get acrylic for those sizes and maybe steel for 6g because that's probably where i'll stop. it's bad to leave in acrylic for long periods of time?

actually thats true, ppl do look at you diff. i went to an interview and the girl kept looking at my ears. i didnt get the job cause of that i mean it depends where you want to work. i had my "gauges" plugs for about 7 years. i went to 2inch and stop there. my parents gave me a choice. they would pay to get them closed up or i would have to pay myself later. getting them done cost $$$$$. but a 8 is nothing, it would close up easily.

I dont know why people with tattoos or body piercings and shit are looked at different...just because that you have tattoos or something doesnt make you any different than someone without them
