    OMG! So fed up with waiting for stuff from here, and eBay. Should be easier, if not I have glass plugs coming and still have tape to fall back on. 

    I know, but straight stainless steel tapers seem to be too back heavy for me and slide out too quick when I'm trying to follow through with my jewellery. Only problem I had with one of my last stretches; as it had been over a year since the stretch before that. My last stretch was nearly seven months ago.

    Do you have two hands? Hold the taper in one, pick up the plug with the other and guide them through.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    So, according to Wildcat my plugs were sent out on the 12th. At least they apologized for general shite service. Taping again atm, at least the bullet's i've borrowed from Jordan are comfier than overly long tubes/SF tunnels!
    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.

    EDIT:

    So...I got bored with waiting for my BJS order due to delayed shipping because of an out of stock item upon ordering. Eh...so I took out my threaded tunnels last night, gave my lobies a jojoba oil massage and got out my PTFE tape. Thought I might as well start slowly stretching up a size using the taping method.

    I thought it would be really fiddly, because it's like nearly as thin as Tippex tape, but I managed okay. I added a layer of PTFE tape to some claws I have. The claws, well the part of them that's in my lobes is straight and doesn't taper off or curve, so I'll end up with an even stretch. Then I dabbed some jojoba oil all over my claws, and slid them easily into my lobies. Popped an o-ring on the back of each claw also.

    I didn't get any creases and the PTFE tape didn't bunch up, although it might do adding future layers. But for now it's all good. Yayness for being on my way to 5mm's.

    YAYS . My second lobe is now at my goal size (2g)! At least that ear's finished lobe-wise. At least I have my other ear to finish up with, pierce and stretch, and my conch to stretch in the future!

    So now my 5mm plugs in my BAF wishlist aren't needed, I can find 2g pretties to replace them with!

    Had to temporarily abandon stretching my right lobe... Again. Silly me keeps forgetting to oil between tapings and so I spent half the night with a dry, sore ear. Upside is that when I've finished with my left, both sides will be even for the first time in a year!
