    20% BAF SALE TODAY! And tomorrow

    @Silicone: If the size is big enough to fold easily, then theres no flare problems and stuff. But my 8g ones I just have to kinda jam through... Leave it a couple of weeks though, cause it can be tacky (much more so with non-kaos) and is porous and you could get rather stuck. And in my experince earskins tend to run, or at least feel, a teeny bit undersized.
    Kaos has a moderately good FAQ on their site. But how healed 'healed' is? Who knows!

    Thanks for all the advice. And I meant the Kaos earskins instead of eyelets. xD

    Also bear in mind that earskins are really thin so might not hold a young stretch open properly. and they're fiddly at small sizes (4mm is do-able though)

    I'll wait longer after stretching and when I get to 4mm or above then before wearing them.

    My Evolve brass coils came today! And they're perfect size and perfect diameter and perfect weight. I was worried they'd be too heavy (since my dio's are so freakishly light, and make my lobes look odd), but nope. I was worried they'd fall out (since my wood rings are always flying out, but nope. Perfect! Now I know what weight and size is cowy I can buy MOAARRR!!!
