    Probably both! That and you're not only stretching but changing the shape of the fistula so it will probably get a bit angry on and off for a while.

    Woo, left lobe finally went to 1g! Loving bio-oil . And waiting on some shorter 14g labrets to start my philtrum stretching.
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.

    I think when I get home tomorrow I will try to find a 14g barbell and change it. A ring is impossible not to hit and is getting annoying. Let it get used to the stretch, then let it get used to the ring.

    Had to downsize my left lobe. Metal in winter just wasn't agreeing. Plus I think i'm a little sensitive to O-rings :/. So despite saying I wouldn't, i'm taping a bit on that side.

    ^ lol
    You could wear them through earskins, or thicker silicone eyelets?


    I have 14mm tunnels also. Just to keep my ears loose for double flares, and wood, you understand. .... they went in stunningly easily though, it's tempting.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    Both lobes 1/2", 5mm, 1.6mm
    Left rook & 5mm helix punch
    Right helix x2 & forward helix
    VCH, 5mm tongue

    Tried to stretch my ears to 2.4mm but they wouldn't stretch... Maybe I should wait a week or two then try again. :/
