    First, a little background:

    I got my ears pierced about 10 months ago. 3 weeks after I got them pierced I went from 18ga to 16ga. I then made a VERY stupid decision to go to 8ga a week later. :noes: They bled... and I took extra good care of them (cleaning, sea salt soaks) until they seemed healthy again. Over the next 4 or so months I climbed my way to 2ga and kept that until May 21st. I took them out then and left them out for a couple of weeks. They seemed like they shrank a little bit, but not much (maybe to 4ga). I decided that 8ga didn't look too bad so I put those in and have been wearing them up until tonight. Currently it seems that they are at 6ga or between 6 and 8ga.


    I think they may be as small as they can go, but I haven't given up all hope. Is there anything I can do to help them, or did I fuck myself over by gauging up too fast? Any help will be appreciated. :hs: I'm hoping to be able to at least get back to a 14ga. :noes:

    I've been told that by putting smaller, dangling earings it will help the lobe to shrink up? Fact or myth? Would more sea salt soaks help?

    Leave them empty. They'll eventually shrink up.

    put in smaller plugs, the next size down. keep doing that until they get as small as you want them.

    I've heard that rubbing them in the shower and with sea salt and also soap will get them to heal faster.

    I've heard using horse semen on them helps close them up as well.

    Um... Not sure what to say about that, but I think I'd rather wait a long time letting them close then somehow getting some horse semen and spreading it on my lobes.:noes:

    I had 00's for about 5 years and took them out a year ago and I'm pretty sure they're never gonna close... :dunno:

    :werd: also to make the hole smaller, let them shrink then reopen them to make it close tighter.
