    Katy, your tragus looks crazy close to falling out. Think there's some serious migration going on, either way i'd get that out!

    Decided my seconds are probably going to 6mm :P.
    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.

    Glad I'm not the only one who spotted that, so worrying that the piercer didn't mention it.

    My ear stretching journey is over:( For a while now my lobes have been getting very dry, despite taking good care of them and massaging them. The dry skin has moved onto my neck aswell. I have had 3 bouts of really bad infection. I havnt done anything to instigate it, i havnt swapped over to new jewelry or anything, there has been no reason. Now the thin spot i had worked so hard to thicken has gone really really thin. I darnt even try and down size to stretch back up for fear of agrivating it again. Its still infected atm, ive already down sized and been babying it with soaks so for the moment im trying to leave it alone. So freaking angry with it right now, gutted is an understatement. I dont want to have to get rid but i feel if it gets infected one more time im going to have to:(

    Titanium is sooo much nicer than the steel I had in my lobe. The plug was so long I kept catching it constantly. Can't wait to go back to glass! My second lobe is stretching up nicely, should be 6mm in that one by Christmas!

    I've grown to love the staying-in power of buffalo horn so much I've kind of gone off glass a bit

    and I haven't worn my new opalite plugs () yet because I have my ears all in black and cba changing.
    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

    Hellooooo I'm new to stretching (and the forum!) But have really enjoyed reading all your stories.

    Not sure if this is the right place, but I'l share my lobe story with those that are bored and fancy a read

    I had my first lobes gunned when I was about 6, I remember the right stud getting stuck in the gun and them fiddling for ages to get it loose. Horrific-stays-with-you memory eh??

    I guess I left them out as they healed over, I can't really remember why but ended up having them re-gunned in my late teens when I knew no better. I actually remember my friends having piercings in Camden with needles and thinking they were utterly bonkers.

    In uni I let them heal over due to some bad positioning (reeeally wonky, guns </3) and got them repeirced with a needle about 3 years ago after I had learnt just how fricken gross guns were. They should defiantly be illegal.

    So when I recently decided I wanted to stretch, it seems the build up of scar tissue from these 2 previous c***ups is making this rather difficult. So I have decided to stretch my second holes! these were done with a 1.2 needle when I got my firsts redone.

    Currently only at 2mm, with a goal of 5 or 6mm I think. nothing too big, but I just love some of the jewellery I just have to try!!

    I havn't seen anyone with 2nd stretches, so hopefully it wont look too odd but I can always let them shrink a bit if I'm not happy!


    So yeah that's my back-story, I'l add some random updates throughout my stretching journey
