    Haha, I do that too. My boyfriend has quite pronounced anti-tragii and a deep conch so I'm like *piercings!* He's thought about getting his lobes pierced and stretching to around 8mm but they're pretty small and the attached-to-your head kind.

    Get them pointed and extended, and then insert permanent massive teeth in his gob.

    I might finally go to 6G after I take a shower tonight... I've been doing oil massages the past few days (I was being really lazy with them before) and they seem to be doing their job. My left lobe is super loose; after I massaged it last night it took me forever to get the o-ring on my eyelet 'cause it was falling out through the flared end. I guess that's a good sign!

    Edit: Tried it and it still didn't work... ugh... I decided to be stupid and go through with it even though it stung a bit. Put the jewelry in and after a few minutes of sore lobes I decided it wasn't a good idea. I'm gonna let them go naked for a bit and put in my old eyelets. I think I'm just going to stay at 8G for a few more months. Maybe I'll buy some pretty jewelry so I'm not tempted!

    Stretching to 5mm... My ear is being silly.
    Using a crescent for the first time, and I got it in no problems. So, I pushed it right through but when it came to putting the plug in, it just wouldn't go. Put the crescent back in again and straight away, got it to the thickest point no problem.

    My ear is slightly angry at me now though with all the playing around so I'm leaving the crescent in for a little bit I think, let my ear get used to the size and then try again with the plug once it feels a little settled.

    You're probably finding it tricky due to the crescent. Crescents in general aren't great to stretch with, they give an uneven stretch, the size leap from tip to middle is too sudden and they can get caught on things if you keep them in. They're also tricky to follow with a plug or tunnel, as they allow the hole to shrink again before you get to do so.

    I'd get a good quality steel or titanium taper and use that instead once they've calmed down a bit. Either that, or just use tape
    these make me cool rite guys??

    Ok, thanks. I normally use steel tapers, but for some reason opted for a crescent this time. No idea why lol.
