    My lobes are still very happy at 5mm, looking really healthy considering how much scar tissue there was from previous piercings. A bit sad that I've only got 1mm left till my goal size!

    I've come to the conclusion that my right ear is full of scar tissue. I STILL can't get to 7/16" and I've been trying for a few months... I ordered 7/16" jewelry during the BAF 4th of July sale and have been trying to stretch ever since then. It's crazy because most people say it was one of their easiest stretches! My left ear is ready for it but not my right.

    Ears: Right conch, left conch, left double helix, 1/2" lobes.
    Other: Both nostrils, septum, VCH, navel
    RIP: Left eyebrow, right double tragus
    7 tattoos!

    Only ones I've seen in 4mm double flare and 5mm single flare in wood are Bare Bones (through eBay). But they're in Thailand.

    I ordered some 5mm no flare tunnels and 5mm single flare, with grooves for o-rings, plugs from them last week. Waiting for them to arrive pretty much nowish.

    I was looking through my jewellery and noticed that the tunnel I had in my bitch lobe after the unsuccessful stretch has a ring of dark residue on it.

    WTF. 6 months guys. Six. Months. And my bitch lobe wants to bleed. God damn it, I must be doing something wrong - it wasn't even that bad when I was being silly last time and stretching every 2 weeks.
    Everyone else is out making something of themselves
    ... and I'm just sitting here eating Maoam.
