    I fancy some wood plugs ... what's the best oil to minimise discolouration/darkening? I've got jojoba oil which is rather yellow ... would coconut oil be ok? (other than stinking of coconut)
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Both lobes 1/2", 5mm, 1.6mm
    Left rook & 5mm helix punch
    Right helix x2 & forward helix
    VCH, 5mm tongue

    Stretched both my lobes to 1.2mm today. I had to get my friend to put the stem and the attachment of the internally threaded labret in my lobes, which was quite a struggle and very fiddly, but she managed after a while. It's a good thing she was there. xD Luckily, I'll have no more fiddling with balls and stuff from 1.6mm onwards - just o-rings. That will be a lot easier. :L
    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
