    At least I found a size I'm happy with, I never thought I'd stop! I'm honestly sick of stretching but I want both my conches to match so I have three more steps or so to go before I'm done forever (or 1 if I downsize the other to 6mm.... which is tempting..)
    25mm Lobe x2, 10mm Helix, 8mm Septum, 8mm Conch, 4mm Conch
    4mm Tragus, 3.2mm Tragus, 2.4mm Scaffold, 2.4mm Lip x5, 2.4mm Vertical Nipple, 2mm Cheeks
    1.6mm Nostrils, Helix, Daith, Bridge, Navel, Rook, Snug

    Yeah, it was a little bit... but oh well. :P

    I've been wondering whether my lobes are too low to be able to safely stretch to 8mm or 10mm, but I might just be being paranoid. I might post a picture here later to get people's opinions.
    Current: 9mm lobes, 5mm left tragus, 5mm left conch, tongue web, nasallang, left rook, left anti-tragus, right tragus, right daith, right snug, right forward helix, bridge, 5mm septum, three-point left helix spiral, double left eyebrow

    Planning: ​ Vertical labret re-pierced

    :L I do love the way 1/2" LOOKS, it's just a weird thought that the holes will probably never go back to being remotely 'normal' looking. Do you not think so?

    Agh I really need to get back to stretching by taping. It's just that the fact that my lobes got sore and swollen after only a few minutes of oil massages makes me think my ears aren't even close to loose enough..but my birthday is only about a month from now and I really wanna be at 0g by then..
    Current
    Ears: Left forward and standard helix, left tragus, left daith. Right rook, right double inner conch. 1g and 14g lobes.
    Face: Right nostril, septum, vertical labret.
    Other: Tongue, standard and inverse navel, left and right nipple.

    July 4th (BAF sale) is soooo soon and I just can't decide if I want more 10mm jewelry (I was probably just going to get a clear pair of earskins) or 11mm....

    Yep it is, and I have a $10 gift certificate which would make a pair of earskins free! But it's also tempting to get 11mm stuff...
