    Been wanting to get it done for a long time and finally just went and did it. They are pierced at 14g, and in a few months i'd like to wind up at 8g. I can't figure out how to take a picture of myself without looking super emo, but here's my best attempt.

    Any idea's on how to keep them clean? My only transportation right now is motorcycle and I'm a little concerned about the full face helmet making them get infected. I went and bought dial soap, and he told me to wash them three times a day with that. Any other tips?

    sea salt helps with the healing process aswell (h2ocean )....just buy a bottle of that and some q tips...and when ur on the run and cant clean with dial soap...just spray and use the q tips to whip off all the curst/dirt or w.e...thats my 10% on this subject...

    btw looks good bro..god i remember the days when i first had my ears set to a 14g...is 8g the biggest your gonna gauge to..?

    That's what I tell myself, but who knows what I'll think by the time I can stretch them. Thanks for the tip about sea salt.

    Twice a day is more than enough if you're not doing any "dirty" activities.

    if you're worried about your helmet ripping them out or messing with them at all just put bandaids or soemthing on them when you wear the helmet

    Bumping for a question... I just bought some 10g tunnels, and I was wondering if it was safe to try to work them in this soon?

    I went straight up tp 10g tunnels. I probably waited about 6-8 weeks before I stretched, should have waited longer because I could tell they weren't healed, but I'm up to 6g now, might go up one more but I'm not sure yet.

    If you pull on them are they sore? If you can pull on them relatively easily then I'd say you're alright.

    I went 14 to 12 to 8. 14 to 12 hurt as much as 12 to 8. I waited about a month each time.

    Another reality apparently
    What is the heal time on that? Ive wanted to get 14g in my ears and work my way up (or down depending on how you look at it, but there are times every few months where I would have to take them out. How long until I could take them out for a few hours/day without the hole closing up quick on me?

    I can pull and spin them all day long with no soreness what-so-ever. I really thought I had got them pierced at 12g, which is why I bought 10g, untill I looked at this thread.

    I'd say you'll be able to stretch them no problem at all to a 10. If you use a face towel with hot water and put that on your ear etc you probably won't even feel it that much...

    Wondering how long I have to wait before I can go to 8... These aren't sore at all and have no redness, I just don't want to overdo it.

    I would give it until they aren't tight. So you're probably good right now, if you did it a week ago.

    depends, some say wait till there healed, some say wait a few weeks

    but with smaller gauges like that it shouldn't matter to much, but the more time you wait in between the better
