    Oil is our friend.....its still a little sore. I was trying to wait til I put some money on my paypal card to order some earskins, I can buy them from the mall but they charge 20 a pair. I get really great deals from a local guy who orders and sells body jewlery, he just hasn't invested in some kaos yet.....the last pair I bought my cat ate them :(

    Now my second lobe is at 4g, with a goal of 2g, 9/16 in my first is just looking teeny. Booooo. Getting closer on evening them up . . .kinda :/.
    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.

    Still horribly frustrated with my lobes. They just do not want to go up a size even though they're definitely loose enough.
    I have single flare eyelets at 5mm in and I can pull the front flare through easy peasy. I measured it and it's actually maybe a mm thicker than the taper that I'm using.

    I can put the taper in but when I do it just feels irritated so it comes straight back out. :( I've tried using colourfronts to dead stretch and no luck there either.

    My lobes still don't feel thick enough to stretch, so I'll just have to keep massaging with vitamin E oil stuff until they get thicker then I can stretch to 1.6mm.
    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

    They're not thin, but they've been thicker. Hmm, I'm probably just being paranoid as usual. :L

    Tbh I really doubt that they can be any thinner than they were before you stretched Oil massages are good anyway! I just wouldn't be overly worried about thinning just yet.

    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.
