    Okay, maybe people got your wording misunderstood but us BJS'ers prefer to make sure everything is done prperly, hence why we hate people who rush, gun and do things stupidly. We prefer time, patience and most of all, healthy piercings. So welcome to BJS, apologies on behalves of those who antagonised you, and enjoy your stay.

    Ah! That makes more sense!

    Mine were a bit weird at 5mm at first, but SSS and then LITHA the rest of the time works really well; my ears are fine now.

    Tisk Tisk Drew. I am going for 5mm also, gona take it super slow thanks to the damn "gun". Or I might just go re-pierce at 2.4mm, wait to heal, then start stretching.

    Just wait for it to feel ok then start stretching you don't need to go super slow if it feels fine and doesn't hurt =], obviously don't rush it but still

    i think everyone's taking what i said before really wrong.

    I have stretched properly.
    I said my stretches took about a week to heal but I didn't go to the next size up for at least two and a half weeks. The 5mm was an exception (idk I was feeling impatient.) I've been taking care of them properly, doing SSS and the sort. I haven't stretched until I felt completely sure that it was safe to do so, and even then I asked my friends who have stretched first if they thought it was okay too.
    The only stretch I have rushed is the 5mm.
    it's good to hear your not going as fast as i first thought. but what still worries me is that you say they take a week or so to 'heal'. if the skin isn't tearing then there shouldn't be anything to 'heal', as it were. In which case, please think about what i said in my first post.
    Lobe - 19mm
    Inner to outer conch orbital - 1.6mm
    Center lip - now 3mm
    Tongue - 4mm

    Not if she's had no ill effects from it besides a bit of discomfort.
