    someone she knows put
    "I went from 3mm to 6mm to 8mm to 10mm to 12mm.. no blowout.. just don't force it too much.. it hurts but its fine (:"

    " It doesn't damage it when it hurts.. just means you get through to the size you want sooner.. I did mine every week or so.. no blowout, no cut, my ears are just fine and will shrink back to normal anytime I wish"

    Astounds me that people don't realise pain is the body's way of telling you it's getting damaged!


    Does anyone else find that buffalo horn plugs stay in better than glass when sleeping? Why is that?
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Both lobes 1/2", 5mm, 1.6mm

    To me they feel grabbier, less slippy (oh how wrong that sounds..).

    Haha that does sound a bit wrong I think I see what you mean though - they're smooth but not quite as slippery as glass. Wonder if it's cos they're organic, they kind of "breathe" so any moisture in the lobe gets wicked away, whereas with glass it just sits there.

    It's good not to have play hunt-the-plug every morning.

    Yeah could be I still haven't got into the whole sleeping naked thing, its such an effort to take my plugs out before bed and remember to put them in again in the morning. HOW do people have time?!

    I'm not sure I'll go back to sleeping naked all the time but it would be nice to be able to on occasion. So comfy. I still take plugs out to shower, only takes a few seconds :P

    But then I don't do much with my hair and don't wear makeup so that saves a LOT of time

    I always pop mine out before I go to sleep-I always put my head on the pillow and then totally forget i'm wearing a plug :/. It's gonna be so wierd when my other side's stretched to remember both! I do sometimes forget to put them back in though haha.
    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.

    Oh man maybe I am just super duper lazy?! I always feel too asleep in the mornings to do much.. Not even take them out to shower most of the time. I just soap up round them and give them a rinse. I always moisturise/oil my lobes in the evening though and give them a breather for half an hour or so. I sound seriously gross don't I! Oh well.
