    I lost a tunnel last night and still can't find it.

    It was a 5mm SF eyelet, I'm too lazy to use o-rings, and as I flipped my wet hair back I heard a strange little noise. I'm starting to think it was the sound of my tunnel being pinged into another dimension cos it's nowhere to be found ...

    Oops.



    (edit) I FOUND IT lol
    I wasn't even looking for it anymore, I'd well given up. I grabbed my bag to see what was in the front pocket (I'm packing today) and there it was, sitting in the lip that goes over the front pocket zip but always folds up.
    Laughed my ass off.

    How big would eyelets have to be to hold 4mm/6g jewellery comfortably through them?

    Well I just tried putting 4mm no flare plugs into the back of 5mm SS single flare eyelets. Didn't fit. But they did fit in the back of my 6mm ones, of the same design, with some wiggle room.

    Have no silicone eyelets to try yet, sorry.

    Future: Eyebrow (L), 1st lobes (1/2"), scaffold (L), nape, nips, nostril (L), outer conch punch (6/8mm), VCH.

    That's ok, thanks for trying with tunnels though! I'd assume it'd be the same so I'll work on the assumption it'll be 6mm+

    Depends on the wall thickness (and length if you mean for hangies) but I just comfortably put a 4mm SF plug into a 5mm Kaos earskin.

    Ooooohhh I'd wear them with clear earskins so as not to distract from them (or scratch them) so if you got them ^ in 4mm you could wear them through earskins in 5mm and up.

    Does anyone have a lot of experience with stone plugs and know which types are heavier than others? Sorta want to order an inexpensive pair during the December BAF sale to pop in my ears once they've healed, and I figure if I want to try dead stretching, I should get something heavy-ish to wear in them for a while (not going to use weights though, don't want too much downward stretching).
    Have: 2g lobes (11/11/12); L 16g conch (07/27/12); 14g VCH (09/01/12) | Next: stretch ALL the things! (lobes: 1g; VCH: 12g)
    Also Want: 8g septum, outer labia, nipples; too many tattoo ideas for my own good; goal size for lobes = 1/2" - 5/8"
    Is it weird that I love piercing crusties...?
