    ^ mmmm, personally I'd wear something solid and maybe heavy for a little while first just to open the hole up properly. I find earskins fold and get uncomfortable if my ears are tight like that.
    You're not actually stretching with them so as long as you've oiled they shouldn't do anything bad.
    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

    ^ cool cool. thats what i've been doing but wasn't sure if i was being overly cautious. I think my ears are really liking to naked downtime. The slight inconvenience of having to wake them up with limited plugs is definitely outweighed by the benefits. Thanks!!

    One ear to 6mm. YUSS SON. The other is taped with 2 and a half layers of bondage tape so that's not far off.

    My second on my right lobe is now 5mm! Only another mm left! Left lobe is also 5mm (or thereabouts, it was 5mm, but I stupidly lost a plug, so now i'm taping over a 4mm. Might just have to buy a cheap glass single from Wildcat!).
    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.

    Hmm. Not sure about my left ear. It's at 6mm and while it's not sore it itches. Hmm. Not sure if this is quite right. Do you lot think I should size back down? :/

    Edit: Did anyway, my ear went a bit red and clearly wasn't a happy camper. Decided to take my right back to 5mm again because although it was fine yesterday it was being pissy when I woke up this morning and felt really tight on the plug. When I took it out it looked pretty irritated. :( Ugh, setbacks.

    Bought some silicone tunnels a few days ago and they are thicker than ear skins so after oiling, folded them slightly the right went in no probs but left one....somehow I managed to pop the inside of my lobe with the tunnel like it was a rubber band. Its been 2 days and its still sore needless to say I am not wearing silicone for a while.

    Ouch. I've always hated wearing any silicone besides earskins. Hope it feels better soon!

    I made my lobes sore today too... got out of the shower and left my plugs out for a while, then was too lazy to oil my lobes before putting them back in so they were really tight and were a little sore all day so I put my 9mm plugs back in. I don't think my ears shrink at all anymore so hopefully I'll be able to put the 10mm back in soon and be on my way to 7/16"!
