    I never used to, but after the Olympics they seemed to crack down majorly. I'm just saying, that's the limit they can't charge you for, any higher and there is a chance. Ofc it's not definite though.
    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.

    Effing small-flared glass plugs! They fall out in bed but at least they bounce on the floor instead of breaking.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    I must be dead lucky because i've dropped my glass plugs (0g) so many times onto a laminate floor and they haven't even got a scratch! maybe they are small enough to absorb the impact better.

    Just stretched my ears from 1.2mm to 1.6mm. It was quite an experience. The taper went in really easily on both ears, then I put the jewellery in and realized I'd put the 1.2mm jewellery in the first ear I stretched in instead of the 1.6mm jewellery (idiot! :L). Luckily, the 1.6mm jewellery went in very easily, though. xD

    Two people I know have gone through the size of a normal earring to 3mm, despite me telling one of them that they need to start small and stretch slowly without skipping sizes. Then the other one was struggling to get the taper in.

    And they're wearing acrylic tapers as jewellery. Good luck with that. xD

    I went straight to 3mm when I first started stretching my ears. I know you shouldn't skip sizes and in a sense I didn't. They had been pierced at 1.6mm when I was like three years old, and after twenty plus years of wearing various earrings (including a lot of heavy danglys) they had self stretched to 3mm.

    That's kind of different, though, because you weren't forcing the taper in like they did. The two people I know said that getting the taper in hurt.
