    I have a 10 guage, that I wanted an 8 guage to begin with, but they wouldnt go that big at first. I'd still like it bigger, but its been about 4 years that I've had it. How much harder, and how much more painful is it to stretch it? and can I go up two sizes to a 6 guage at once, or do I have to do an 8, then 6?

    crak600 (recent 8g PA stretch) or AlmightyButtons would give the best advice...I've only stretched my ears once and it wasn't that bad, but it was a small gauge stretch. I haven't gotten around to contemplating my PA stretch.

    From what I have heard though, the bigger the gauge stretch the more painful.
    i.e. A 16g-14g stretch wouldn't hurt as bad as a 6g-4g stretch.

    you do not want to skip guages when you stretch. If you don't want to wait to go much larger, have it punched.

    When i stretched(i had it tapered) it was not bad. Well, the 8->6 stretch wasnt. nowhere near a piercing.

    My 6->4 stretch however, was a whole different story.

    What kind of jewlery you been wearing? With my 6g hoops going to 4g the tunnels slid right in, no taper needed.

    pyrex plugs. they're light, so I had very little to stretch the holes out.

    Dallas, unfortunately.
    if you try to stretch from 10 to 6, you will experience some real pain. i dont recommend it. odds are you will just end up tearing it. get a couple of tapers and an 8 ga piece of jewelry. wait a month between stretches, and youll be good

    stretching is no no way more painful then getting the actual piercing imo. generally the bigger the gauge your going to, the more painful it will be. never skip gauges even if your going from an 18g to a 16g. if you want your ears to look good then do it right. wait 1-3 months between stretches and have fun with it.

    my piercer uped my frenum for me... cost like 6 bucks for her to do it and she made sure it was all clean and all... the frenum hurt reeeal bad about 5 times more than the piercing... but she did it fast and quick... if id had done it myself im sure it would have been a long drug out painful process

    I'm looking at stretching a scrotal barbell piercing. The odd thing is other than the instant the needle went through, it didnt hurt at all. there was no pain afterwards. But since its been a few years, and it has healed, with some hardness to the hole, I'm concerned with tearing it. The hole is about a 1\4" long, so its not like an ear hole.

    hmm.... for some strange reason, I went from a 10g to a 6g with my PA that I got in January and had absolutely no trouble getting it in. It was nice and snug, but no pain and not "TIGHT." I didn't expect it to go in, but I had a 6g CBR lying around and figured "what the heck." I also don't recommend skipping gauges, but if it slides right in like mine, no pain and what not, then whats the harm?

    I went step by step. Between March and August I went from 18g to 00g. I went each step of the way toward the end. I ended up using the chopsticks off a couple of Bratz Tokyo dolls to stretch. I played with it and got it from a 14 to an 8. The rest was easy. I used pinchers to stretch the rest of the way, now I have a Bettie Page 00 plug in.
