    As can't comment on that then it would seem near impossible to use on small sizes to me!

    It is very fiddly! But it wasn't so bad on my 4mms, so it probably is the flares doing it.

    It's just a pain in the bum is all seeing as I'm so close to 6mm (my goal size). My 5mm plugs just fall out without o rings, but if I were to put the 6mm taper in it would require pushing past a little resistance. *ranting lol*

    I know your pain I had the same at that stage, think on my left ear I waited a good 2-3 months, so annoying!!

    Hmm actually now I think about it, it might be a bit too early to begin taping anyway. I've been at 5mm for months and months, but I did a downsize in may. So I've technically only been at 5mm since the start of June. So about 5 weeks. I forget about it cause I feel like I've been at 5mm forever xD

    (since 3.2mm my ears always seem to get real loose around the 1 month mark, but then take like another 2-3 to actually loosen up to the next size! boo D: )


    Yes, but do you reckon I should wait another few weeks? Or is it a little different for taping? And would you recommend PTFE over bondage tape?

    I'd deffo go with ptfe over bondage tape personally, mainly because you can be more gradual with it! Should be ok to start taping now really and if it doesn't work try again in a week and so on etc

    Just got a bunch of awesome 7/16" jewelry. I tried to put in a pair just out of curiosity (not to actually stretch, just to see how close it would come to fitting) and I could tell it'll be quite a while before my lobes are ready for that size. I've been going back and forth between 9mm and 10mm and I guess I need to just stick to the 10mm for 6-8 weeks or so before I try the next size. Bleh.
    I'm Lindsay.
    Piercings:
    Ears: Right conch, left conch, left double helix, 1/2" lobes.
    Other: Both nostrils, septum, VCH, navel
    RIP: Left eyebrow, right double tragus
    7 tattoos!
