    So the flare on my new Mayan flare plugs is 3/4" and it looks like a really good size. I kind of want to go a good bit bigger. Sigh...
    Also think I've decided on 8G as a goal size for my second lobes. I was looking through my old jewelry and found a pair of 8G pinchers I really used to like and it made me think I'd really like an 8G hole to wear pinchers, CBRs/horseshoes, and some hangies through.

    How long is it safe to wear stone plugs? I stretched to 12mm a week ago and today I got some gorgeous jade plugs from a girl on Jewelry Exchange. I was really happy to find out they were 12mm, not 1/2", and they are single flare and have a perfect wearable so they are super comfy. I really prefer them to the steel tunnels I have because they look/feel a lot like colorfronts. But how long can I wear them?

    My lobes feel healed now! They're much thinner than I remember just cause they've been slightly swollen for a few months haha! They're about 10.5 weeks old now but I doubt I'll get my BAF order until March so they'll be about 15 weeks / 4 months - will that be healed enough to wear stone? I ordered some gorgeous stone plugs (although I'll leave the DF til my ears are about 6 months I think!)
    Also, are we in agreement emu oil will be ok to use once it arrives? I'm sure it can actually be used on still healing piercings?
