    You might not get the chance to get the hangies again if they are discontinued. You could do a lil of both. Get the extravagant hangies, but a few cheaper everyday wear, instead of one or the other.

    Yeah, I think I'm going to get the hangies and maybe a couple pairs of colorfronts and a pair of stone plugs. I love the Luciferins but that's just soooo much money for one pair of plugs. I'm even thinking about waiting til I get a second hole and getting them at a smaller size. I might go as big as 6G with my second hole, I haven't decided yet.

    Rethinking my goal size possibly... I like how 5/8" looks a little better, at least with plugs in. However, I personally don't like the look when stretched lobes hang "loose" when they're naked. So I'll just have to see what my ears start to do as I size up before I can make that call. Besides, I don't know if going up to 5/8" would agree with my aspirations to work in a law firm. Does anyone have naked pics of 16mm lobes?

    Edit: I'm kinda obsessed with Mayan flares, so I could wear Mayan flared plugs in 1/2" to make my ears look a little bigger, but I think they look even better at 5/8" (which is a 7/8" front flare for Oracle's plugs)...

    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...?

    I'm wondering the same thing... I'm at 12mm and it hasn't distorted the shape of my lobe at all really, so I don't think they will be too bad at 5/8" if I go that big.

    my ears are same as they were at 1/2 and all the sizes lower. Although I am not at 5/8 but at 9/16 they are round plump circles when I take my jewelery out and the longer I leave them out, the more lobes relax they start to really plump up and they look smaller but then I slap some coconut oil in them and pop in plugs. Has helped my lobes thicken to leave the jewelery out. I am hoping by doing this, I am helping my lobes to not do that hanging thing that bigger sized lobes do. I love the bigger sizes but not the droppy lobes look if that makes sense. Then again my mind or ear size could decide to change.

    Mmmmmmm holey butt'r

    Lobes have been naked for 24hrs, right one looks fine but lefty still looks a tiny bit puffy so I'll leave them longer. They feel fine though, not even a crusty to be found.
    Mysterious swelling is mysterious.
    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

    ive decided im only going to 8g or 3mm in my 2nd lobes and i dont know whether to get both done or just one ear.. also going to be getting my rook and stretching to 4mm as my piercer wont do punches on rooks, and getting my labret and stretching that as again my piercer wont scalpel labrets or punch them as the whole would defiantly be permanent.. i love the stretching jounrney and cant wait to get these done and then i can wait the allotted time for healing and then start to stretch
