    Default Stretching Lobes

    Hello people
    I was wondering if you could help me. Im thinking about stretching my lobes and have a couple of questions i hope you could answer for me. :?

    No 1 : If i stretch my lobes only to a small size like 5mm will the holes close up again at all if i take them out and leave them?

    No 2 : Will my second holes be affected in any way by the plug in the first hole?

    Cheers
    Katie

    Umm its hard to say if your holes will close over its different for every person, but i think if its a pretty small size you have more chance of them closing.

    Not too sure about your second question, i have 2nd holes and my 1st ones are 6mm and it doesnt affect them at all.

    Usually if you stretch past 8mm, then you should be aware that your holes will never close up back to stud size again. They will go down but they won't "close".

    Oh and your second holes won't be affected by them, I've never heard of such a thing.

    Actualy the second hole will make a difference, well it did in my case.

    The position of my second hole changed as i stretched my ear (moved lower in my ear) as the shape of my ear changed due to the stretching, my ear also has a different shape becuase of the second hole compared to the other side which only has the stretching

    I've stretched mine to 5mm and it hasn't really altered the shape too much or effected my other lobe piercing. I think it would be better, if you decided you didn't want stretched lobes anymore, to downsize a size at a time so the hole stays even. so just wear the next size down until it fits okay then go down again etc etc. i dunno if this is the better/best way but it's how im going to do it so it stays even and stuff
