I don't have any peircings or tats, I plan on getting a tat on my birthday next year.
Whole reason I don't is cause I live with my dad, and he is like hella old and thinks they are for delinquetes.

^Same way for me. My mom is thankfully more open minded, she's not against the idea of tattoos but she wants me to wait til I'm older (which I have no problem with).

Also update, I've stretched my lobes to 14g just fine and soon I'll start with 12, then hopefully get my lobes pierced again, but a bit higher up.

Dimensionator, make sure you leave them at least 6 Weeks between stretches, unless you want to risk them looking like cats' arseholes.

Baisley's the man, and that work looks like it should do him some justice when it's done. Good stuff :yesway:

good good :D

i dont feel i should have to hide mine, so i dont tend to bother... i dont see why its frowned upon.

because we live in a society where anything out of the norm is unacceptable. :scratch: which is a crock of shit, because everyone is their own person and should be able to do what ever they want to their body and not be judged for it, but that is how people are :rolleyes:

well if he's at 14 and going to 12, he shouldn't have any worries. i went from 14 to 8 using tapers, but that's because 8 is still relatively small for gauges. so in a sense you are still right. 4-6 weeks is about right :agreed:

I just stretched them last night after a shower (having had them for in for about 2 weeks) from 14 - 12 and they felt fine, no pain whatsoever.

I didn't have a problem stretching mine out at first, once you get to bigger sizes it's best to wait to get to the next size. I have my lobes at 7/16 and I plan on keeping them there. I took my time getting to this size. I think I started stretching mine about 2 years ago. I don't plan on stretching them out any bigger. Any bigger and my lobes will take a new shape and I don't want that. I took them out and within a 3 weeks they shrunk down to a 6g. I work a fairly white collar job and they are pretty cool with my gauges and also having my cartilage pierced as well.

Random question for you guys-
I've been contemplating stretching my ears.
Question is: how permanent is it? Is there a certain size you can go to before they will refuse to close up again?

8mm is generally the size where they close up to normal piercing size when they heal. Anything past that you're looking at a tiny hole!

Mine were 18mm and 16mm and because I looked after them when healing, they look like small scars rather than holes in my ears. They don't look too bad!

Our singer got 30's on small lobes and one side is ripped. He regretted that.

I had my ears stretched to 1/2' and after a week or two of taking them out the hole had shrunken back down to the point where an 8 wouldn't fit through. I don't know if that's normal tho?
