    I got my ears pierced about a month ago, got 14ga in there right now. The plan is to stretch to maybe 0 or 00, but I was just wondering when a lot of you guys switched from CBRs to plugs. I've heard that it's good to use rings earlier because the extra weight helps in the stretch, but at some point they start to look a little odd. So at what gauge did you guys switch over?

    around 4 or 2... i used acrylic rings until then, no weight to them so they dont hang all low, just man force them in each stretch, dont be a pussy about it

    i actually started out using the jewelry that they use for tongue piercings. i was at a 14...did it till it was a 10 because i bought a set that was really cheap.

    then after that i just went to plugs, the ones that are like little claws. i found that those helped because they're kind of like tapers...its small then as you push it in, it gets to the bigger size. if its hard to push it in, i use vaseline to help it glide in easily little, if any, pain.

    I switched at 6g. Don't follow 'the real banjos' advice. Sometimes he drinks heavily before coming online and doesnt think before he types.

    A friend of mine fucked his ears up because he would stretch to the next size like every few days. Even skipped a few.

    I got my first plugs at 2g. Everything else was weighted rings or luggage locks or chopsticks or home made jewelry. :hsugh: I'm cheap.

    i had circular barbells all the way up until 0g. the 2g circular barbells did the stretching job for me so after a while the 0's went right in... right now i am at a 00 and it tore... just a little bit.. because i didnt wait long enough between 0 and 00

    cheers.

    at 14g i had a CBR. 12g, i had a CBB. 10 through 6 (what i have now), plugs. for a while, i was really just what was available and decent looking to me at the time. i really didn't care for a while, since i'd be getting rid of the jewelry in a few weeks. 8 was a small tunnel for a while, though (gift from a friend).

    i got to 0 in my right ear in under a month from the day i pierced it :o figured id keep it stretching before it got a chance to heal. my ear turned out ok though :hs: better than my other ear that i stretched slowly over time at least :sad2:

    not something im very proud of though

    pierced with an 8 needle then immediately tapered to a 6. so my first plugs were little tunnels at 6g. been slowly stretching once every 2-3 weeks and now im at 00g. never used anything but plugs. my piercer has done every stretch so far, 6-4 with a taper 4-2 just slid right in, 2-0 with a taper, and 0-00 slid right in. 000 in about 3 weeks.

    profesionally doing it is without a doubt the best idea. I've built up a strong relationship with my piercer so that now he gives me everything for cost. my ears are in great shape, perfect little holes, no folding of skin when i take them out. never bled except for when they were pierced. never hurt.

    im tired of seeing people with blowouts and shit. like AB said dont listen to the real banjo, theres no such thing as doing it like a man. there is doing it correctly or incorrectly.
