    Yeah you can use the same ones on both of your ears thatpsycho.

    Thank you Kerry, I was going to just do it for a friend but thought I might as well just make it in general. I'm going to do a follow up probably.

    Crescents really aren't good for stretching with. They're a weird shape and put pressure on both ends of the fistula. Also, at larger sizes they can get super heavy. I had a pair in 4mm (not to stretch with, just to wear) and even they were kind of big so 8mm ones would be massive!

    Piercings:
    Ears: Right conch, left conch, left double helix, 1/2" lobes.
    Other: Both nostrils, septum, VCH, navel
    RIP: Left eyebrow, right double tragus

    Just be careful, it skips 7mm and 9mm. And sometimes its difficult to stretch with tunnels, single flared plugs are better.

    helix. tongue. rook. 5mm conch punches L & R.
    central labret. industrial. double nostrils.

    If I but a stretching kit that skips those sizes, I'll buy 7mm and 9mm insertion pins.

    I didn't realise you were using the crescents as jewellery, I did at smaller sizes and had a dirty blow out at 5mm :S I didn't make that mistake with my other ear! I am fully converted to glass, just need to tape my ears up enough to get the glass in!!
