    They're growing on me! Will see what's in stock on BAF's sale day though.

    What are you after? I got some cute 6mm star tunnels from BAF recently .
    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.

    Anything really, at the minute I'm wearing titanium tunnels and I fancy something a bit fancier! I'm only at 5mm at the minute though my lobes have refused to stretch as they had been doing, think it's all the cold weather!

    I think my ears may be ready to stretch again in a few weeks or so. I forgot to put them back in after my shower the other night, left them out for about 2/3 hours, usually it's a bit of a squeeze if I don't put them back in straight away but they slid straight in nicely

    Also thinking I might start keeping a diary of when I start/finish taping because I can't actually remember how long ago it was!

    Colorfronts are always cute, and ofc you can pick your colors . These are the ones I got. Tbh in the cold weather i'd stick to glass or metal really.

    This might sound really stupid but how expensive/easy is it to order from BAF? They have so many nice plugs on there (esp. the colourfronts) but I've always been put off due to currency changes etc

    It's very easy. Basically, anything below $24 (I think, whatever 15 is lol), won't attract customs charges;any higher and you will most likely be hit with VAT&Royal Mail handling fees. Just check on google for the currency.

    Just use xe.com to find the exchange rate, they're not expensive for the quality and I'd say the shipping is fair, all the times I've ordered (about 10 or so) most have been over the threshold for customs and I've never once been charged but it's something to take into account.

    coinslot ear cartilage removal, 5mm conch punch
    Cosmetic Modifications: Scar removal x7, semi permanent eyebrows, semi permanent eyeliner, semi permanent lipstick, lip dermal filler, botox
