    I've decided that i wanna stretch my lobes, i have my left ear pierced right now but its at like a 20 gauge, I've decided tomorrow that i am going to redo it or stretch it to a 10 ga and pierce my other at a 10

    just figured i'd let you all know i'm coming to the dark side of piercings, i have tattoos but i've always been fascinated by piercings, and my gf has convinced me to pierce them finally

    i do have a question though after all that rambling, how long does everyone typically wait before they start stretching??

    I usually put at least a month between stretches, with my jump from 2g to 0g I waited about 6 weeks, and from 0g to 00g I have been waiting about 5 months now but thats because I am trying to break down all the built up scar tissue on my right lobe.

    In your case I would just take your earring out and let it heal up completely and then have a studio pierce them both. I am assuming you had your ears gunned or else they would be a bigger size and you might have some scar tissue so while you are letting them close I would do some vitamin E rubs to help eliminate the scar tissue.

    from 20 to 10 is actually a huge jump. from 20-14 was what i did and even then was a tight fit.

    make sure its what you really really want.

    i got to almost 1" before deciding that i didn't want them at this point in my life... and now i have permanent holes.

    its an easy decision to make and they do look awesome but understand its just as serious as a tattoo.

    be safe, go slow.

    also the piercing you currently have mite not be in the perfect place for stretching, so check with your piercer first.

    it is what i want to do, i dont think im gonna go as big as 1 inch though, right now i've told myself only up to 00ga, and i know how it is with tattoos and such, i got a couple haha, no worries, as for my current lobe its pretty much in the direct centre of my lobe i think, we'll see

    I went from 18 to 12 to 8 . . . the 18 to 12 wasn't too bad, I just used vasoline and an earing both times, the 12 to 8 hurt like a bitch in one ear, not too bad in the other . . . I waited about a month in my left ear before going to 12, about another month before 8. I didn't have my right ear pierced so when I got that pierced it looked kinda goofy so I waited 2 weeks before the 12 jump and another 2 before the 8 jump. Probably not the best but if I remove them or goto something smaller it doesn't look bad. No tearing or anything bad either . . .

    make sure whenever you stretch to use a taper, and not just jam a new earring in there that along with stretching too quickly is what will lead to scar tissue forming.

    also make sure and use a water based lubricant when stretching, vaseline is petroleum based and can get stuck in your ear and attract germs/bacteria, its just as easy to buy some KY and no worries.

    They're called stretched lobes or even pierced lobes. Gauges are something you use to measure something else.:wiggle:

    i've recently been pondering this. I've had my left pierced for about 10yrs, my right about 6yrs. Thing about my left lobe is, when i don't have an earing in for even a couple of days, the back is damn near closed.

    Bein a retard i've pretty much repierced it several times already. How bad is that if you wanna start stretching?

    The right is fine, i can leave it be for weeks and pop an earing in.

    It just depends on how much scar tissue has built up from tearing open the piercing with jewelry. Vitamin E rubs might help with getting rid of some of it.

    Is it hard around the piercing?

    what the fuck are you talking about?


    i was saying people calling the process of stretching ones ears "gauging" is a mistake but set in stone now just becaues its so widely used now

    like

    columbus calling the native americans "indians" is a mistake but set in stone now just because its so widely used now.

    i have no idea what you thought i was talking about, or maybe you were just looking to be a tool as usual.
