    I just want small black plugs, I don't know why, always wanted it... so if I stretch to about a 4-2ga, if I take it out after a year or so of wearing them they should close right? People keep telling me different things. Most of those people don't know shit about stretching.

    Because when I finally graduate college and go job hunting I might not want them in. and of course I don't want huge holes in my ears.

    Yea I'm new to this, I searched for stretching but didn't see anyone talk about closing (I also didn't look that hard :hsd: )

    First, the irritating answer: "Everyones ears are different so everyone can have a different experience. It depends on your skins natural elasticity, blah blah.."

    But if youre only thinking of going to like, 2 gauge at most, i dont forsee a problem in having them close back up for you. Do expect that there might be a "funny" fused, smooth texture to where the hole used to be but its hardly noticable. I have a friend that posts here actually, that joined the military and was required to remove them. I think I remember him being at about a 4..maybe 2..and you can see that "fused" look that I mentioned but wouldnt know what it was unless you knew he'd had stretched lobes.

    A warning though: Stretching to some people, like with piercings/tattooing, can be incredibly addictive. I started stretching with the intention to stop at 2, just large enough to have tunnels that i could fit hoops through attractively, and now Im at 00 and looking forward. Its just fun. :dunno:

    you have to be sure you let them heal completely, at least a month between each gauge, if you want the best chance of them going back to "normal" when you decide you don't want them anymore

    Yea when I first got my ears done I wanted to go crazy, but I held back. I'm sure stretching will spark it up again but I can control it. I'm just worried about the heal factor, I don't care if it will look a little funny if it closes, I just want it to close when I take them out.

    Also about how long does it take to close from a 4-2ga?

    That's actually what I am going for :eek3:

    Do you order your plugs/tapers online? I ordered shit from Tonguestud.com but it's been a few days, don't think my order went through and I don't want to try it again with them.

    look... you can get them pierced all the way up to zero. so just pierce your ears up to a 2 and you'll be fine. don't waste money stretching when you can go right to it. the pain isnt any worse than stretching. and your ears will close up fine.

    i had mine at half inch and i had them out for 6 months and they went back. of course i got them re-pierced and now they are at an inch. and im about to go up to 1 1/4. b/c like previously said, its addicting.

    I ordered some stuff from www.kolopiercing.com a few weeks ago and they had awesome customer service. Pretty good selection too.

    I just placed an order at www.piercedfish.com. They don't have as good of a selection as kolo but they're a bit cheaper.

    Before that I just bought cheap stuff from Cosmic and Hot Topic, since I was going to go up a size after a month anyway.

    Its true. I have needles up to 4g but prefer to only pierce up to 6g.

    Does piercing larger reduce the chance of closing up or cause alot of scar tissue?

    Its not much different at all. Its even proven that piercing at a larger gauge heals quicker.
