    i've had my ears at 0 for almost 2 years but in the last 3 months, i take them out 8 hours a day because of work. last nite i tried stretching to 00 but it's kinda hard and i'm afraid to rip my ears. i've stretched my own ears and usually it's not this hard. except for the last jump.

    any advice? does it matter that i leave it out for 8 hours a day?

    first off if your ears don't feel like stretching don't force it

    second if you are going to have to take them out everyday for 8 hours then the stretch will never heal you will just keep re-stretching them

    remember you treat a stretch just like a fresh piercing, and you have to leave the jewelry in for I would say at least a month if not 2 months before changing it out. Also even if you left it in for a month or two chances are your lobe will shrink back down and you will be forced to stretch

    my advice would be not to stretch until you have a job that is cool with your jewelry or you will just have a bunch of problems

    i already know not to force it.

    i guess what i'm asking is if it's ok to stretch it right now. seeing that i've had it for so long. i can put clear plugs after.

    If it's not sliding in without pain then your ears not ready to stretch.

    start doing some vitamin E rubs for about 5 or 10 mins everyday, maybe 2 rubs a day. try that for about 3 weeks and see if it is any easier to stretch.

    attempting the stretch after a nice long, hot shower is always helpful because the skin will be slightly stretchier

    do you have any scar tissue around the hole?

    emu oil? sounds stinky. Dr. Burt's Res-Q Ointment works well, maybe not for stretching but put some on the next day if its sore, it really helped my septum. just use some good lube like ky. shower is always the best place.

    yeah, i normally do the hot shower thing. no scar tissue.

    Hathegkla, i've read people putting it on 2-3 weeks prior to stretching to make it stretchier.

    I tried stretching to a 2g about 2 months ago. I tried 2 nights in a row and it just wasnt happening. I just tried again tonight and it went in so smoothly with a little bit of pain after. Just give it time.

    man, getting my septum up to 2g was rough. getting it in wasnt too hard, it was actually the easiest part but it was sore as fuck for days (well weeks). it was putting pressure on the cartilage in my septum, feels fine now that all the skin has loosened up and I got a nice soft rubber plug in there.

    now I just gotta get my ears up to 000 long enough to get my 00 plugs in. I got silicone in there right now but I have a pair of jade plugs with big flares that I cant get im :(
