    nice urrrrrm i love the look of conches and paired with your current piercings sounds good to me would you be looking to stretch a conch or not? (just cus conch dermal punches are said to be really painful :/ and im waaaay too much of a wuss to have one--->look fab though)

    I think getting a conch punch would probably hurt less (in the long run anyway) than trying to stetch cartilage.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Both lobes 1/2", 5mm, 1.6mm
    Left rook & 5mm helix punch
    Right helix x2 & forward helix
    VCH, 5mm tongue

    Its so much easier to just get a dermal punch with cartilage. With stretching you run the risk of all sorts of nasty junk. When I stretched cartilage it never really felt 100% comfy, always tight. Stretching would take years too.


    Now
    : 11mm lobes. 6mm septum.
    helix. tongue. rook. 5mm conch punches L & R.
    central labret. industrial. double nostrils.
    philtrum. tattoos.

    Retired: snakebites. nostril x 2. 2nd & 3rd lobes.
    helix. outer conch. nipple.

    Next: tattoos.

    Cartilage is such a bitch why do we keep sticking stuff through it?

    Have to say I really like the look of naked (healed ofc) punched conch's

    Opinions please - i am shortly stretching to 5mm lobes, however it's my 2nd lobe piercing i have stretched, my 1st lobe piercing is 1.2mm so i can wear standard earrings. i've been looking at jewellery porn and now i'm thinking of a target size of 10mm. my question (as google and yahoo are so hostile!) do you think this will look okay or strange because it's a 2nd lobe stretch? if anyone has any examples, experiences or pictures i would be most grateful. k thx bai!

    ^^I'm pretty sure there's someone on here who has 8mm middle lobes?Could be imagining that though, but I seem to remember it, can't remember a name though sorry!
    Tbh I think it'd look fine the only thing you'd have to worry about would be a distortion, or the shape of your ear changing, as I could see that happening.Depends how fussed you are about that really, but since you're stretching up oh-so gradually anyway you could always stop if you noticed it
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    hey guys just wondering about having a snug piercing but my snug area looks kind of small to me...
    thought i might as well ask your opinions before going all excited to the piercers to be told no! haha

    so if anyone has a yes/no/maybe to whether my snug is piercable that would be great
