I don't have anything to do this with, just force.....it looks like my 1/2" are a little small going by the size of the jewelry, is this really doable? I can make it about 3/4 of the way over the flares, but not all the way without hurting like hell....but all my 1/2 plugs and my 00's fall out in my sleep. I need something bigger, and this is all I've got. No more teflon tape, nothing. Piercers, what's the best way to go about this?
